Tyler Baltierra is usually getting real about his struggles with mental health.
The Teen Mom OG star visibly held back tears in an emotional video message to his 2.2 million Instagram followers on Monday.
“Sometimes you just don’t even genuinely know what to say to your children. I don’t ever cry in front of [my daughter] Nova or anything. I don’t want her to feel any of in which,” he confessed. “You have not bad days, then you have bad days. in addition to today is usually just a bad day.”
Baltierra, 26, encouraged others to seek help, in addition to continued, “I know I’m not the only one feeling like in which. So if you’re from the same boat as me, just hang in there, in addition to you’re not alone in addition to talk to somebody.”
The MTV personality, who shares 3-year-old daughter Novalee with his wife, Catelynn Lowell, also stated in which he debated deleting the clip entirely, yet quickly changed his mind.
“If I can at least connect with one person through in which & let them know in which they aren’t alone in their struggles. the idea will make being vulnerable worth the idea,” he wrote.
The reality star added, “I’m posting in which because I think the idea’s important for people to not feel alone in their struggles. We’re humans, we’re allowed to have bad days, hard times & weak moments. Don’t be ashamed of what makes us humans special. You’re loved. You’re worthy.”
After a fan on Twitter suggested in which Baltierra’s emotional message could be due to cheating allegations against the star, he shot back, “Omg! in which wasn’t AT ALL what I was upset about. I was upset because the idea’s difficult when Nova cries out for her mommy & I have to keep explaining why she’s not here to hug her tears away!”
The couple have long been open about their mental health struggles, as the 25-year-old Lowell, who battled postpartum depression, told fans in January in which she is usually seeking in-patient treatment a third time to deal with childhood trauma.
