Maxene Magalona is giving a toast "to all the strong & brave souls who continue to get up & show up even when it is difficult due to life's problems."

The actress has always been open about her mental health struggles. This time, she puts focus on "healing" and speaks from personal experience.

Her latest Instagram post reads: "Everyone is going through something and what we need to do is learn how to hold space for each other so that we can help each other heal.

"I feel for those who are dealing with a mental health condition because it really isn’t easy to struggle with internal disturbances on a daily basis. What people who do not have a mental health condition find hard to understand is that it is a constant battle to come face to face with your inner demons while having to deal with life's responsibilities.”

Maxene continues: "It is not easy to feel unsafe in your own body due to past traumas and have to be okay to be able to handle everyday tasks. This is why I had to find ways to be able to deal with my condition and its symptoms so that I can continue with my life.

"There was no way that I was going to allow this 'problem' to take control of my life and make me miserable."

In her own "self-healing journey," Maxene says that “reading self-help books, going to therapy, journaling, practicing yoga and meditation everyday and having a solid relationship with God" has taught her how to "deal and live with my mental health condition."

Maxene acknowledges that this is "not the easiest path to be on," but this is why she has now learned to respect herself more.

The post continues: "I know the amount of effort & hard work I put into healing and bettering myself. I know the kind of pain that I choose to face and feel and not run away from. This makes me stand tall and proud of the strong and brave soul that I have become."

Maxene ends her post by cheering on her fellow "self-healers."

"If you're one of us self-healers who choose to go on this difficult path, I raise my glass and vibration to you. If you want to have a drink or two to be able to alleviate any pain you may be feeling, please go ahead and do so.

"I understand how stressful these times can be so I know how fun it is to drink our troubles away. But before you do, make sure that you have already released negative energy so that you won’t suppress it and turn it into even more stored pain. Cheers!"

At the start of the year, eagle-eyed followers saw that Maxene was no longer following her husband, musician Rob Mananquil, on Instagram.

On top of that, the ABS-CBN star took out her husband's surname in her social media bio.
