The Hollywood star Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame broke down in tears last week as she revealed to the world that she is battling depression.

Cameron Bure Reveals Depression Battle

Cameron Bure, 47, admitted on her podcast last Wednesday that she feels “shame” about her depression battle.

“[Depression] is such a lonely place, and it’s very difficult to speak out about it, even to your most trusted people,” she said, according to Fox News. “”It’s hard to admit it, at least for me, I feel like, because I should be strong enough to overcome that and then it just feels weak. It just feels so weak. And the perception of that.”

“And I’ll also say that there are a lot of people who feel that it’s weak and will verbalize that. So, then it’s just immediate shame that you’re like, ‘Oh, well if I struggle with this then I’m weak person,'” she continued. “Yet there’s so many times when I’m like, ‘I don’t want to feel this way.’ I can try with all of my might to get out of this, and I can’t pull myself out of the pit. I can’t pull myself out by myself. But it’s hard to extend the arm and go, ‘Help me.’”

‘The Lord Hears And Delivers’

Cameron Bure shared this clip to her Instagram page, where it immediately went viral.

“We’ve been going through feelings and emotions this season on the @candacecameronburepodcast,” Cameron Bure wrote in the caption. “This week @jennieallen and I touched on how depression has impacted our lives, and how to overcome it.”

“If you struggle with sadness or depression, please know you are not alone,” she added. “Psalm 34:17-18 says, ‘When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.’”

Cameron Bure Uses Exercise To Fight Depression

Cameron Bure previously revealed that exercise is one thing that has helped her in her fight against depression.

“I have loved this journey of fitness,” she said. “I feel stronger at 45 than I did when I was 20 years old. It’s just every time you get stronger, or I see my muscles from doing more pushups, it keeps me going to want to do more and just keep that up.

“Really another big part why fitness is important for me is it’s so beneficial to my mental health,” she continued. “I juggle, as we all do, a lot of plates. I not only juggle my family but also work in a lot of different capacities.”

Not stopping there, Cameron Bure proceeded to double down.

“It can get really difficult,” Cameron Bure added. “The travel can get strenuous as well. I need to keep my mental health clear. Just sweating that out and all those endorphins really help me a lot. I notice a huge difference when I don’t exercise, how much it can affect me mentally and kind of deal with depression. That’s why I keep going. There are a lot of benefits I get. My mind is most important, and exercise definitely helps that.”

Cameron Bure has long been known as one of the only openly conservative Christian stars in Hollywood, and she has millions of fans who look up to her. God bless her for opening up about her battle with depression and for continuing to use her platform to help others in such beautiful ways!
