Over the last couple of weeks, Good Morning America meteorologist Ginger Zee opened up about her ongoing struggle with depression alongside her new book, “Natural Disaster.” She went on “The Chew” to make carbonara with Clinton Kelly, and talked more about her decision to open up about her battle with depression.
“This is something that is difficult to talk about for a lot of people, it was difficult for me to talk about for a long time, but this is the final chapter in me healing, I think,” she told Clinton. “I’m finally being honest with myself.”
She said that when she finally came to the point where she was able to admit that she wasn’t okay and asked for help, her personal life calmed down. “I finally got into that beautiful, sunshine place,” she said.
As for others struggling with depression or hardship, she shared a perfect weather analogy: “In the science world, the atmosphere moves all the time– the clouds just can’t sit in one place– so even though it feels like that, it doesn’t have to last forever,” she shared.
