Candace Cameron Bure breaks down as she admits ‘shame’ to talk about depression: ‘She feels so weak’

Candace Cameron Bure broke down in tears as she reflected on her struggle with depression.

The 47-year-old actress shared a clip from Wednesday’s episode of her podcast in which she got candid about feeling “ashamed” to open up about her feelings to others.

“[Depression] it’s such a lonely place and it’s so hard to talk about, even with the most trusted people,” she told author Jennie Allen.

“It’s hard to admit, at least for me, I think, because I should be strong enough to get through it and then I feel weak. It feels so weak. And the perception of it.

“And I will also say that there are a lot of people who feel that they are weak and will verbalize it.” she added. “So it’s an immediate shame that you’re like, ‘Oh, well, if I struggle with this, I’m a weak person.’

“Still, there are so many times that I like, I don’t want to feel like this. I can try as hard as I can to get out of this, and I can’t get out of the well. I can’t get out on my own. But it’s hard to reach out and go, help me.

“If you struggle with sadness or depression, know that you are not alone,” she added before sharing a quote from the Bible.

“Psalm 34:17-18 says: When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears them and delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

The Great American Family creative director previously shared how exercise has helped him in his battle against depression during a Q&A with The Salvation Army Midland Division.

“I’ve loved this fitness journey,” she said. “I feel stronger at 45 than I did when I was 20. It’s every time you get stronger, or I see my muscles doing more push-ups, it makes me want to do more and keep doing it.

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

“It can be very difficult,” Bure added. “Traveling can also be exhausting. I need to keep my mental health clear. Just sweating that and all those endorphins really help me a lot. I notice a big difference when I don’t exercise, how much it can affect me mentally and I kind of deal with the depression. That’s why I keep going. There are so many benefits I get. My mind is the biggest thing, and exercise definitely helps with that.”

The “My Christmas Hero” star also explained how she gets through tough times by leaning on her faith.

“I’m a woman of faith and I’ve always been a woman of faith,” she said. “My faith is not something I dig into when times are hard. It’s always a part of me no matter what.

“But I couldn’t get through these tough times without my faith,” Bure shared. “I find it almost shocking that anyone could, because Jesus and the word of God give us so much hope and longing that there is something more ahead and beyond this life.

“That’s incredibly powerful. I’m a faithful woman through both the hard times and the celebratory times, just praising and thanking God for all the good things, like I woke up today and I’m breathing.”
