Alongside a clip about mental health from an episode of The Real, Jeannie, 40, wrote about the lessons she learned from undergoing therapy.

"Too many of us carry burdens that are not meant for us to handle alone. Some we're aware of & ignore, some reveal themselves when triggered... leaving us feel more weighted with shame and depression," she began.

"I've been there. Broken trust and disregard trigger me (still), especially when I put so much work into a relationship," the stylist continued.

Jeannie continued to speak about having perspective. "Perspective over your past, perspective over your trauma, perspective over your Purpose. Instead of looking at your pain as a daily struggle, look at each morning you wake as an invitation to discover YOU," she said.
