All about mental health: Britney Spears took to Instagram to share a long, moving post on mental health wellness on Saturday

The short paragraph read, ‘on cloud nine whenever my camera is in my hand [stars emoji]but I’m learning now more than ever that my job is not my purpose. it’s a big part of my life and I LOVE it, but I’m not learning the societal standard that I’m worthy based on my productivity.

‘you are worth more than you can do in a day. you deserve rest and love, you don’t need to earn your place in this world. once you lean into this truth, the work becomes easier, it becomes a labor of love and not a burden on the soul. so if no one told you today, you are worthy, you are loved, you deserve to be here, you will do great things in time [leaf emoji].’

Spears followed it up with several pages of her own thoughts beginning, ‘Have you ever wondered why readers love to read [inquisitive face emoji]??? I don’t know… maybe because we choose to read [book emoji] rather than express. It is our security but our worst enemy!!!! You think to yourself “did I just read this the wrong way?” and then with a flip of a coin in literally 2 seconds, your whole universe could change because your mother’s voice sneaks into your brain with doubt and does that thing you never wanted when you were older young…literally drowning in confusion [eyeroll emoji] !!!!

‘Challenge yourself again and again…I mean some people prefer others like this…why??? It shows they are weak so in return it empowers the other person but let’s be honest…when I was drowning no one helped…they let me drown here and I believe it with all my heart. .. so NO I don’t want to be the black reader who questions me too much [shrug emoji] !!!

‘I need to swim to breathe…find the land…and scream until the end of time!!! But then it’s that damn voice of doubt…the fall comes slowly something you honestly met with denial for a long time or wait…was it denial at all [hand on chin emoji] or was it your true innocence clinging to the higher world of magic [magic wand emoji] ???’

Replaying a Conversation: After a little diversion to talk about magic and her two sons she called, 'd*mn brilliant'

Replaying a Conversation: After a little diversion to talk about magic and her two sons she called, ‘d*mn brilliant’

After a little diversion to talk about magic and her two sons whom she called “shiny d*mn”, she opened up about a recent conversation about a complaint she had with a friend.

‘I said to my friend last week ‘I feel bad complaining’ and you know what she said? Something I never thought I would hear her say…she said “to be totally honest with you, you hardly ever complain”!!! She said “What if the negative is the new positive and the positive is the new negative???” She also said “Maybe being negative is being awesome” [shrug emoji] !!!! Ok… so I thought about it and I was like “hmmmmm [hand on chin emoji] does that teach me to lie [flustered emoji]????? I’m the worst liar ever [laughing/crying emoji] I’m like “let’s hang out all week please[anxious emoji]”

“It sounds awful, but I wear my heart on my sleeve. Maybe being completely honest can hurt you. It’s a vulnerable thing to do…mind [brain emoji] is so sensitive. Be careful who you allow near or how you talk to each other!!! It’s called living in the brain and my God, I have a huge pre-heard and it’s not always a breeze up there [monkey covering its eyes emoji] !!!

“I wake up every day and try to stay grateful. The mind is so powerful…with the flick of a switch, one thought can change everything. That’s pretty powerful if you think about it…with the two words of “I DO” my husband is wearing a ring now that he’s working out and realizing a WAY OVER DUE marriage can always lead to this thing called a fairy tale [queen emoji][king emoji] !!!

“How incredibly blessed…excited…thrilled…and truly thrilled I am to be able to share about MENTAL HEALTH. This well-written caption touched my heart [rose emoji] !!! I don’t know who she is but it was well written. My intuition spoke so softly and this whispering voice came in…it was so so so so nice.

Who inspires you guys??? Which people lift you higher??? Who can make you laugh so hard that you piss on it??? Keep these homies [laughing/crying emoji] !!!’

She then told fans what she was reading, Invisible by Danielle Steel and Magical Household by Scott Cunningham.

Spears’ rambling Instagram posts have become more frequent since the end of the years-long conservatorship last fall. She’s written on a number of topics in the past and focuses a lot on mental health on social media.

She recently married her longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari in a ceremony in Los Angeles last month. Asghari is her third husband.
