Julianne Hough Shares Emotional Quote about Feeling Depressed after Brooks Laich Split

Professional dancer and television personality Julianne Hough and her husband, Brooks Laich, recently-separated. A recent social media post by the dancer spoke about dealing with change and other emotions.

At the beginning of the week, Hough, 31, took to her Instagram Stories to post two cryptic quotes. The messages came at a time when the star was dealing with her split from Laich, 36.

Her first quote spoke about dealing with feelings of being “stuck,” depression, hopelessness, and anxiousness. The solution Hough presented to beat these heavy emotions was to “try taking your attention off of yourself and helping someone less fortunate than you."

“CHANGE IS HARD”

The quote noted how being “selfless in “acts of service” would light up the giver’s “life force energy.” The second quote was from writer Robin Sharma and it read:

"Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end.”

HOUGH & LAICH’S SPLIT

It isn’t clear if the quotes were related to her separation from her husband. On May 29, 2020, the former couple confirmed that they had split from each other.
