Wynonna Judd made a big heartfelt post on her Instagram about how she feels so “helpless” after her mother Naomi Judd’s recent death.

The duo has spent the last few decades in the spotlight with most people totally unaware that Naomi Judd suffered from bouts of deep depression. Earlier last month, Naomi shocked fans and reportedly committed suicide.

Wynonna has clearly struggled to deal with her mother’s death and spent memorial day weekend in reflection. She shared her thoughts and appreciation for fans to see. She also shared a very vulnerable and tender side as she wrote about her mother’s death.

The 58-year-old country singer wrote about how there is “so much happening in the world right now” without really specifying all of what she was referencing. She then said that before she decided to sit down and write that she really didn’t “know what to say” she recalled advice she got from her life coach who said “what do you know” and that’s what she wrote about.

“I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did,” Judd shared. “This cannot be how The Judds story ends. I DO know, that in order to be a healthier grandparent to my firstborn grandchild Kaliyah, {born 4/13, 2 weeks & 2 days before Mom left}, to break the cycle of addiction & family dysfunction, that I must continue to show up for myself {first} and do the personal healing work.”

“I know that it is a simple steps program, and those steps are not easy to take at times,” she added. “Therefore, I’ve made a commitment to keep doing the ‘next right thing,’ and schedule weekly appointments so that I continue with the ongoing work, even when I have good days. I DO know, that I feel so helpless—right now especially.”

“I DO know, that as corny as it sounds, ‘Love Can Build A Bridge,’” the county singer continued. “I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night. I really DO know, that I’m not able to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it’s okay to reach out for help. I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing.”

The singer closed out her post by thanking fans for all the “love and support” they have shared following her mom’s suicide in April at the age of 76 and wrote “let’s check in more often”.
