Taraji P. Henson Recounts How She Almost Her Life Twice.

Hollywood actress Taraji P. Henson, in her recent episode of peace of mind with Taraji on Facebook, revealed how she contemplated committing suicide.

Taraji addressing mental breakdown during the covid-19 pandemic with her co-host Tracie Jade and Dr. LaShonada Green, a licensed psychologist, stated that she could have ended her life. She said:

“During this pandemic, it’s been hard on all of us, and I had a moment. I had a dark moment. I was in a dark place. For a couple of days, I couldn’t get out of the bed, I didn’t care. That’s not me. Then, I started having thoughts about ending it. It happened two nights in a row.”

The empire star actress who just ended her engagement to former NFL player, Kelvin Hayden, went on to say:

“I had purchased a gun I could go in there right now and just end it all, ’cause I want it to be over.” She went on to say that she remembered her 26-year-old son, Marcell Johnson, and told myself get over it”

“I began withdrawing and stopped responding to concern loved ones who had reached out, i realized she needed to speak up about my feelings.”

“Finally I’m talking to one of my girlfriends and I knew, I was smart enough to say, ‘I have to say it.’ Because a part of me was ashamed. I was like, ‘I don’t want them to think I’m crazy. I don’t want them to obsess over me or think they gotta come and sit on me.'”

“So one day I just blurted it out to my girlfriend. She called me in the morning and I was like, ‘You know I thought about killing myself last night. Oh my god, I feel so much better. I’m not gonna do it now.'”

“…what scared me, is that I did it two nights in a row. And the thoughts kept coming. Now I started think about how. At first, it was like, I don’t want to be here. And then I started thinking about going and getting the gun. And that’s why when I woke up the next morning, and I blurted it out. Because I felt like after a while it was going to take over me and it was going to become a plan because that’s how strong my brain is. Our thoughts… They’re that powerful.
