Taraji P. Henson reveals that she considered killing herself in the course of the pandemic
Taraji P. Henson talked about mental health on her new Facebook show, Peace of Mind With Taraji, and recently revealed some of the personal thoughts she had during the pandemic.
During a conversation with the psychologist Dr. LaShonda Green and her friend and co-host Tracie Jade revealed to Taraji that she was considering suicide. She said, “I couldn’t get up for a couple of days, I didn’t care. That’s not me. Then I started thinking about finishing it. “
She went on to explain, “It happened two nights in a row.” She then mentioned that she had recently bought a gun and when she remembered that dark moment she said she was thinking to herself, “Well, if I could go in there now and just finish it all because I want it is over.”
Taraji also mentioned how she thought it would affect her son, remembering thinking to herself, “He has grown, he will get over it.”
Taraji admitted that she was ashamed of her thoughts and mentioned that she knew she had to speak her thoughts out loud to someone else. “People called me, I didn’t answer,” she said. “I just didn’t care. Finally, speaking to one of my friends, I knew I was smart enough to say, ‘I have to say it. ‘“
Dr. Green expressed that she later felt a sense of relief and assured that unhealthy thoughts are common and that talking to someone else can be a helpful factor.
