NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace experienced a period of self-doubt and depression after his friend won a championship, despite having a successful season himself.

He expressed these feelings on social media, and his friend Ryan Blaney reached out to offer support.

“Sitting here on the couch questioning everything,” he posted. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“You would think your bud winning the championship would bring that joy and excitement back. Sadly it did not.

“It’s the helpless feeling that really kicks ya,” Wallace added.

“My wife can see that I’m off but I don’t have the what or the why that I’m feeling this way to allow her to help me.”

“To my peeps out there staring at a blank wall, I’m with you. Tomorrow is another day. Another opportunity. Keep after it.”

“He called me a couple days later and I was like, ‘Man, I guess you winning the championship sent me into depression. Like congrats, but I don’t want to see that,” Wallace recalled.

Wallace’s struggles with mental health have been a public topic, and he has found stability and support from his team and co-owner Michael Jordan.

“It’s just kind of how Bubba is, you know he’s very hard on himself,” Ryan Blaney said.

“He is just super hard on himself and you try to pick him up, right? The other night I told him ‘Man, you did great. Tenth in points, you made a good run in the playoffs.’ OK, he didn’t win, but I mean, he had a great year.”

“There’s seeing a friend do it, and it’s other part of seeing another young guy around your age,” Blaney said.

“When Chase won the championship in 2020, he and I are really great friends, I was super happy for him. But I was also kind of jealous because I want to be that guy. I want to be in that spot.”

“You always kind of compare yourself to your age range. You get jealous of the guys in your group that have success,” he added. “And I’m the same way. I think everyone is internally, whether they express it or not.”

“I wake up and my wife’s there. She’s like, ‘How are you feeling today?’ And it’s like, one of those days,” he said.

“We keep each other on our toes. We play video games together. So she’s a massive help. And then the next thing you know, clock strikes 5 o’clock and it’s like, ‘How’s it going?” and I’m good. It just kind of blows over.”

“I know it’s not that easy for a lot of people. It lingers for days and days and weeks. But you know, the grass is always greener as the sun comes up.”

While he has not confirmed professional treatment, he relies on his wife for support and looks forward to better days.
