Taraji P. Henson “hit a wall” with her sanity as she embarked on a month-long trip to Bali.
The 52-year-old actress recently took to social media to share behind-the-scenes photos from her time on the scenic island – but Taraji insists the photos were for the benefit of other people and not her own ego.
Speaking to E! News, she explained, “I wasn’t there for fancy posts. I shared some of them because I know a lot of my fans were worried about me. And a lot of people could relate to the where I was, they felt the same.”
Taraji admitted she was really struggling with her mental health in 2022.
But now the actress feels really healthy and refreshed after her time in Bali.
She shared, “I had really hit a wall, but I decided to do something about it. I decided to fight for myself and dig deep inside and work on myself- And that’s when I went to Bali for a whole month and I literally ate and prayed and loved.
“I met an amazing community of people who I still stay in touch with, and found my joy and happiness.
“I am no longer the same woman I was before going to Bali. I feel like myself again.”
In 2020, Taraji confessed to struggling with suicidal thoughts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, she later told “Entertainment Tonight” that she was on the road to recovery.
She shared, “(I’m) much better. It’s called suicidal ideation, and it’s not that you’re really going to carry on, it’s just thoughts that cross your mind when you’re down. And for me, because I’m in therapy, I knew saying it out loud and getting it out of my head would dampen it.”
