For those who’ve been struggling with anxiety attacks lately, Moira Dela Torre’s Instagram post will make you feel less alone.

Yesterday, the singer posted a photo of herself on the platform with the caption, “the past few days have been tough mentally. anxiety attacks have been often. my joints start to stiffen. I couldn’t breathe. but it hurts more to know that so many people go through this w me every single day.”

She then reminded her followers that it’s okay not to be okay. According to Dela Torre, “let this post be a reminder that it’s okay not to be okay and that getting help is good. It’s not something to be ashamed of. our partners, our family, our friends, our psychiatrists are all gifts from God. don’t be afraid to open up. your pain is valid. you are important and you are worthy to be heard.”

She added, “I also need you to know, healing is for YOU. God ACTUALLY wants to heal you and to bless you. so don’t let the enemy drown you in shame and rob you of the healing you deserve because you are SO loved. our confidence is that we have a faithful Father we can always trust.”

The singer ended her post by saying, “remember that you have conquered tougher days. NONE of this is permanent… so keep going, my friend! the pain you are suffering cannot compare to the joy that is coming!! So at present, we can exercise the muscle of gratitude so much that it outweighs the muscle of worry. TOGETHER. You are stronger and braver than you think and you are most definitely not alone.”
