After Michelle Williams announced on her Instagram on July 17th that she had checked herself into a mental health facility for depression, a lot of her fans (and her haters) wanted to know what sparked her depression. Considering that she’s 1/3 of one of the most successful girl groups on the PLANET, and she’s also recently engaged, I can see why it could be hard for people who don’t suffer from depression to understand why she was depressed.
But I was surprised when I started to see comments blaming her new fiance, Pastor Chad Johnson, for her depression. It seems a post that her fiance made on Instagram, that was supposed to be positive, is causing people to think the worst – about him!
Michelle’s fiance, Pastor Chad Johnson posted a picture of the two of them on a boat on Instagram with the caption:
I missed the IG birthday shout out to my beautiful and (insert a million more phenomenal adjectives here) fiancé, due to all we have been facing as of late! Today, I’m “In My Feelings” (not over KeKe either! 😂) because doing LIFE with you @michellewilliams has been one of the greatest experiences anyone could ever have, EVER!This pic was a year ago, when the world found out about “US”… back then, our relationship was flooded with puppy love, a ton of laughter, with fun and new experiences…. but it essentially was untested!!!!If someone would’ve told me that a year later we would have faced all that we have in such a short period… I wouldn’t have believed them and/or ran like my name was Forrest!
Today, as the world has dimly seen, we have been tested beyond what I could’ve imagined, proven beyond what I could have desired, and persevered like ONLY God can carry us through (this pic says it all)! Through it all You have remained with a pliable and moldable heart in the hands of our Maker, and that makes me love you even more!! Happy Birthday (ig late) baby! Here’s to All Of me for All of you! 🥂 I love you! #restart
The #restart also has people wondering if Chad means they are re-starting their relationship as if something was wrong with it in the first place.
You can not and do not know a person simply by what they post on social media. That being said…stop trying to put “two and two together!” You will fail every time! You can’t determine the status of people’s lives, relationships, etc by lurking on their profiles. It may help but it doesn’t tell the whole story! Love you!
