In a candid post on Instagram Story, the new co-host of CBS’ The Talk revealed that she’s finally ready to seek out therapy.
“New Years has been tough, extremely hard for me. I’ve cried more recently than in awhile. I thought Christmas would be hard, this was worse,” Amanda wrote. “I think it’s because when the new year comes you want a clean slate or to forget about last year, esp 2020. But, I can’t forget about last year and will not be able to wipe that slate clean.”
She continued, “I also think I am slightly scared of what can happen in a year, how much things can change. Lastly, I think everything I went through is finally catching up to me and I am finally ready to go to therapy to address the trauma.”
Amanda went on, saying that she’s being open to her followers to share that they are not alone in their own grief.
“I share all of this as my continued honesty about grief and loss. How it ebbs and flows, changes a lot. How it hides and then finds you. How it’s a journey, not just a week. How it’s continued struggle even as I stay positive and active. How you can cry some days for two seconds or two hours. How it makes you feel so lonely and confused.”
“Being honest, acknowledging all of this instead of hiding it, has helped me. I hope it helps you,” Amanda concluded.
