Tiffany Haddish has been a Hollywood it girl for nearly two years straight since her film “Girl’s Trip” dropped in 2017. But success doesn’t equate with total happiness, which the actress confirmed in a recent tweet.
“Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night so hurt,” wrote Haddish on Tuesday. “I don’t know if it’s from my past, from something right now, or what is to come. All I do know is, I Thank God for letting me wake up and I cry away the hurt so I can clear space for what feels Good Love and success.”
Haddish joins a small group of actresses who despite being extremely accomplished said they struggle with either loneliness or depression.
After Haddish’s tweet about feeling hurt, the actress said she finds crying cathartic.
“I like to believe crying is nothing but removal of old beliefs and a replacement of new ones,” she wrote. “I mean at the end of the day it is the 1rst way we all communicated. Sooo you supposed to cry… not all the time but when the mind needs cleaning out. It’s like cleaning my room not my favorite thing to do but I do it every month.”
Haddish’s tweet received a slew of comments, and people sent her a lot of encouragement.
“If this happens on a regular basis, seek professional help,” someone suggested. “No shame in getting help for WHATEVER ails you. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!”
But there was at least one person who implied that Haddish has no reason to feel down since she’s presumably financially secure.
“Wow. Some people wake up to cry because they don’t have a bed or a house to sleep in,” that person wrote.
“I used to sleep in my car because I was homeless,” Haddish shot back. “And you know what I never cried then. I was hurting more than ever. But now I am strong enough to let the hurt out.”
