Candace Cameron Bure got candid about dealing with depression on the newest episode of her eponymous podcast.

The 47-year-old actress — who reunited with Full House co-star Lori Loughlin last month last month — teared up while discussing how hard it can be to ask for help.

‘It is such a lonely place too. It’s very difficult to speak out about it,’ she admitted to author Jennie Allen. ‘Even to your most trusted people.’

The mother-of-three added: ‘It’s hard to admit it, at least for me, I feel like because I should be strong enough to overcome that and then it just feels weak.

‘It just feels so weak. And the perception of that. And I’ll also say that there are a lot of people who feel that it’s weak and will verbalize that. So then it’s just immediate shame that you’re like, “Oh, well if I struggle with this then I’m weak person.”‘

She explained, ‘Yet there’s so, so many times when I’m like, “I don’t want to feel this way.” 

‘I can try with all of my might to get out of this and I can’t pull myself out of the pit. I can’t pull myself out by myself. But it’s hard to extend the arm and go, “Help me.”‘

Sharing a clip of the episode with her 5.7 million Instagram followers, Bure captioned, ‘We’ve been going through feelings and emotions this season on the @candacecameronburepodcast.’

Engaging her fans, she added, ‘This week @jennieallen nd I touched on how depression has impacted our lives, and how to overcome it.’

She left readers with a helpful note as she said, ‘If you struggle with sadness or depression, please know you are not alone!’

Quoting the Holy Bible, she shared: ‘PSALM 34:17-18 says, “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”‘
