Britney Spears is doing her part to use her platform for helping others after she gave some advice for how she personally deals with the stressors and unpredictable anxiety that life tends to throw our way. The 38-year-old Pop Princess took to Instagram on Monday afternoon after a weekend of regularly scheduled silence. The latest social media post by Britney follows a recent trend of the singer — getting real with fans about mental health, which has become a hot topic in her own life.
The “Oops! …I Did It Again” singer delighted her fans with a colorful social media post that quickly racked up thousands of likes after being seen by the singer’s 26.5 million Instagram followers.
“If you ever get overwhelmed in life … step back … take a breath … and literally take baby steps,” Britney told her fans.
Along with her sage advice, Britney proved how witty she is by holding up a handful of tiny colorful sandals, meant to resemble the “baby steps.”
Taking a step back are words Britney has lived in her own life, as she re-entered a mental health facility last year after having a slip in her own ongoing treatment. In April 2019, Britney went on Instagram and taped a personal message for her fans admit the chaos of media headlines and court battles having to do with her mental health. The singer told everyone she needed some time for herself in a plea for silence:
” I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me,” Britney said at the time.
Since seeking treatment and returning back home, Britney has appeared to be adjusting well to everyday life, as she continues to take “baby steps” every day.
Last week, she posted a special thank you message on social media for those fans who have stood by her side through all the crazy times.
“To my fans …. I want to thank you guys so much for your support throughout the years !!!!” the singer wrote alongside some beautiful photos taken near her home.
Britney also admitted that she reads the comments from her loyal supporters and appreciates everyone who takes the time to write positive messages:
“Sometimes when I read the comments ….. yup ? we all do it sometimes ?♀️?♀️?♀️? ….. it shows me how loved I am and how beautiful people really are !!!!!! I mean seriously ? though !!!!! Anyhow …. thanks for all your KIND words ….. it means so much to me ….. GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!! So you know I really care ….. I will say it again ….. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.”
