Necole Kane, a hugely successful blogger and now founder of women’s platform xonecole shocked fans when she spoke about her ordeal with depression at the just concluded ‘Silence the shame’ conference which was initiated by another member of the #BlackgirlMagic community, Shanti Das, a veteran music executive who also suffered from depression after her late father committed suicide.
In a video which would come as a surprise for most people who know of her, not only is she successful but she highlights how she’s deemed the strongest in her circle of friends. She revealed how she was always the one they’d run to for advice and counsel because she always found a way to make things better.
She speaks of how she’s been on a mission to pouring into herself over the last 2-3 years.
You can’t pour from an empty cup.
This was definitely a stark reminder that depression is never written on anyone’s forehead and caring for your mental health is a real thing. We have to get to a point where we’re not placing any stigma on anyone going through a mental breakdown as it happens to the best of us.
