The lovely wife of the rock musician and conservative political activist Ted Nugent, Shemane Nugent has admitted that she has struggled with depression with a hope to find the light as we all go through the tough times.

An author, podcast host, and Zumba fitness instructor, Shemane Nugent has candidly explained how she was affected by the global pandemic in a mental way and what she did to overcome these stressful and dark days.

On her recent Instagram post, Shemane said that she is highly aware of the uncertainties that frighten everybody right now. To cope with the devastating mental effects of coronavirus, she exemplified the advice in ‘John 1:5’ from the Bible. Shemane reminded the sermon, ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’

She also unfolded the details about her life and her process of survival from the darkness and depression. Shemane Nugent said that she sometimes deals with the negative thoughts that come when she’s not doing the thing that makes her heart sing. Without her own health and happiness, she admitted that she cannot help others.

Here is what Shemane Nugent said in her latest Instagram post:

With so many uncertainties right now, from the invisible enemy of Covid19, to whether we’ll ever return to normal, there’s one thing that you can and should do: be the light! John 1:5 is a good reminder: “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

These are troubling times for sure. I’ve had to be intentional about safeguarding my typical happy demeanor. I stray away from situations (or people) that drain my energy, and focus on things that make me feel happy! I’ve learned to minimize time spent on social media, (one or two days without a post is OK!).

To be honest, I sometimes deal with depression or negative thoughts. Darkness. Usually, that comes when I’m not doing the thing that makes my heart sing. Then I realize, I can’t be of service to others if my health and happiness cups are empty.

God wants you to be the light in these dark times and shine. Be playful. Have fun. Enjoy this gift of life. Show gratitude and grace for others, but especially yourself. You have the light within you. Let it shine.”
