Let this serve as your daily reminder to always take care of your mental health too. Sometimes, this is something we overlook and ignore.
A few hours after posting an inspirational quote on Instagram, Britney Spears checked herself into a mental health facility. Quite timely since she posted, “We all need to take time for a little ‘me time.’”
According to The Cut, this is a few months after she announced she wouldn’t be performing her “Domination” show. In a post from January, she shared that she wanted to put family first and focus on supporting her dad who was having health problems. “A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him.”

I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.
A source also told People, “They’re so close, and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her—she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”
Whether you’re going through something similar or feel the same way, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
