Tamar Braxton is thanking God for her second chance at life.  

On Monday, the 43-year-old singer shared a snapshot of her looking at herself in the mirror, alongside a lengthy, yet candid, Instagram caption.

“God thank you for saving me!” she wrote. “You know my true heart. Despite what the world may think of me, you kept me here for a reason. You are a God of second chances, and this second chance I won’t take for granted.”

Braxton goes on to admit that she hasn’t been doing a good job of taking care of herself as she’s put all of her “time and love” into her children, jobs, relationship and family. 

“I believe I have put a lot of time and effort in loving and giving my all to everything else but myself. I have allowed myself to stay in toxic situations including work environments,” she added. 

The mother of one also revealed that she’s been struggling with her mental health and “it’s not joke” and not a reason to be called “crazy.”

She ended her post with a vow to “be the Tamar Braxton I can be.”

The post is the only the second that Braxton has made since — according to multiple reports — she was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles by her then boyfriend, David Adefeso.

Following her hospitalization she cut ties with WeTV, the network she’s worked with for reality series Braxton Family Values and Get Ya Life!. A decision which came just one day after she made allegations of being “betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid.”

“They promise us opportunity but produce exploitation, which has only developed a poor portrayal of Black people in show business,” Braxton said.
