Janet Jackson Discusses Happiness In Open Letter

Janet Jackson says that she is truly happy in an open letter published by Essence magazine. “When it comes to happiness, I’m no expert. I have only my life experiences as a guide. I’ve known great happiness and I’ve known great sadness,” she wrote. “I was happy when my brothers came home from performing on the road. But I wasn’t happy with the way I looked,” adding that while in her teens, “happiness came when people asked me to perform. I was happiest when pleasing others and not myself.” “These were difficult years, when I struggled with depression. The struggle was intense. I could analyze the source of my depression forever,” she writes. Later she writes that she has “found happiness with my relationship with myself and God. That happiness is grounded in the moment.” The full heartfelt letter will be featured in the July/August issue of Essence. Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
