In her post, the mom of two had a simple message that many parents might relate to.

She continued, “No one is ok every single day. If you are not ok today I’m with you. There’s always tomorrow 😘 Love you.”

This is not the first time the athlete has used her voice to spread mental health awareness. Last year, she opened up on her wellness journey during a discussion with singer Selena Gomez, for her Wondermind platform.

“Mental fitness for me is just really learn[ing] to shut down,” Williams said. “And you know I did this years ago, before even mental health was a topic among everyone’s mind.”

She added, “It was more just like, alright, I’m shutting myself down today. Just subconsciously, it was something I’ve always done. And so now that I know that it’s so important to just put yourself first, especially mentally, I always have shut down moments. I have serious boundaries and I don’t let anyone cross those boundaries.”
