“I don’t know to be quite honest.”As she held back tears, I thought I was happy but the things that I thought – Imma get emotional [and] I don’t want to.“The things that I thought was making me happy, they don’t cut it anymore and so I’m in a place where ‘what does that look like? and I’m kind of spinning and to be quite honest with you Angie, I haven’t been happy like purely happy in a long time.“I haven’t.” Henson then added that she’s aware her current mental status is “just a wake-up call.”
The 52-year-old then shared that she hopes to find her happiness on a solo trip to Bali.
She said: “I’m about to go to Bali for a month by myself. It’s my own spiritual journey. I gotta find my happiness and it’s not in my friends, it’s not in my momma, it’s not in – you know, it’s me, it’s me and this is the work I gotta do.”
