Terri, who is the widow of Wildlife Warrior Steve Irwin, shared a quote by author and decorated military veteran Steve Maraboli, which read: “Avoiding certain people to protect your mental health is not weakness… it’s wisdom.”

In her accompanying tweet, she wrote: “Thank you @SteveMaraboli. Another jewel. Caring for others seems to be easier than caring for ourselves.”

Bindi announced yesterday she was taking a break from social media and putting her work commitments on hold for the sake of her family and mental wellbeing.

“I need some time to focus on the happiness that is my family (both human and animal),” she wrote in an Instagram post. “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.”

The move came one day after Bindi was called out on Facebook for making surprising claims that her grandfather Bob. When asked by one user why she left him out of her Father’s Day tribute but mentioned her dad Steve, husband Chandler Powell and his father Chris, Bindi detailed the nature of her relationship with Bob.

“Unfortunately my grandfather Bob has shown no interest in spending time with me or my family,” she replied. “Publicly he continues to claim that he wants to spend time with us while privately my entire life has been psychological abuse from him.”

Her comments attracted outrage from some, including Bob’s friend Amanda French, who co-wrote his memoir The Last Crocodile Hunter.

“He loves your Dad, and you guys more than you know,” French commented on Bindi’s post. “This should be a private matter not written about on Facebook. I’m so disappointed to read this. It’s immature to write such words.”
