Candace Cameron Bure can be seen as a ray of sunshine for her millions of fans, thanks to her upbeat and funny personality. Many of them show her smiling or hanging out with former colleagues and loved ones, but like everyone else, Cameron Bure isn’t immune to low points or darker days. With that, in a very candid post, the new GAC Family star admitted that she’s been struggling lately.
Given the kind of content Candace Cameron Bure usually posts on social media, this latest was definitely a major change of pace. Cameron Bure took her Instagram stories, where she opened up about her recent mental health struggles. The message was reinforced by a screenshot, which she used to explain her current state of mind as “a dip, meaning a black hole.” The Full house The alum was candid about the toll her current state of mind has taken on her daily motivation, saying:
Everyone goes through their low points, and celebrities like Candace Cameron Bure are certainly no exception. Sometimes, these moments can strike unexpectedly and, as demonstrated above, negatively affect one’s daily life. Although apparently it was difficult for them Fuller House actress, finally decided to take the initiative and pull herself out of the funk. Cameron Bure went on to explain how the walk served as a stepping stone to help her find her way out of the black hole:
These posts came after Cameron Bure’s husband Valeri Bure celebrated Father’s Day in a funny post, as well as the couple’s 26th wedding anniversary. Despite these happier circumstances, the actress has also dealt with some low points this year, including the death of her TV dad, Bob Saget, and the backlash she received for not posting about the Uvalde school shooting. Needless to say, this year has been emotionally draining for the actress. Through it all though, Candace Cameron Bure is staying busy with new TV movies slated for later this year.
With everything going on in the world right now, it can sometimes be difficult to stay positive in the face of adversity. When that happens, like the former Hallmark star, it can definitely help to find some kind of outlet or bright spot. And if you’re religious like the actress, you might also find comfort in your faith. It’s important to take some time for yourself, in whatever form it comes, so I think many of us could stand to take a page out of Candace Cameron Bure’s book.
