Bindi Irwin shared with her fans that she is taking a little break from social media. She talked about mental health and hinted that it was the reason she was stepping back. Bindi recently opened up in a now-deleted comment about her estranged relationship with her grandfather, her late father Steve Irwin‘s dad.
She admitted that it had been difficult for her that her grandfather didn’t seem to want a relationship with her or her baby girl, Grace. Bindi shared a black and white photo of herself hugging baby Grace.

She captioned the post, which she also turned off comments for, “Hi guys, Just a note to say thank you for your support. I’m taking a break from social media and most of my work in the public eye for a month to be with my beautiful daughter and my wonderful family. I feel tremendously grateful to share our life and conservation work with you but I need some time to focus on the happiness that is my family (both human and animal). You can keep up with our adventures by following my family and Australia Zoo on social media. ”
She added, “Recently, I’ve had many people reaching out to share their own stories of working hard to protect their mental health. Thank you for sharing and speaking your truth. To my friends who are dealing with depression, anxiety and other battles every day – I see you. These issues are very real and deserve to be discussed and addressed. Surround yourself with the light of people who genuinely care about you and will support you during the good times and the hard times. Remember there are helplines available. Mental health deserves more understanding and support instead of being dismissed or patronised. You are absolutely worthy of love and kindness.”
Just before her post announcing her break, she shared a quote from Steve Maraboli that read, “I don’t think people realize how much strength it takes to pull yourself out of a dark place mentally. So if you’ve done that today or any day, I’m proud of you.”
Hoping Bindi, Grace, and the entire family is doing well! Everyone needs a social media break now and again, especially those who share their lives with millions of fans.
