Y&R Michelle Stafford Gets Real on IG About her Personal Challenges
Michelle Stafford has been playing the role of Phyllis Summers for decades and that too in perfection. And thankfully she is totally opposite than her alter ego. Unlike Phyllis who is manipulative, schemes and lies for living, Stafford is one of the sweetest and the realest person on earth. She is like an open book, from the start she has shared all about her life, and her struggles. Like the time when she was trying to adopt and the whole process of getting her two beautiful kids. From her accomplishment to loss, she has never been shy to express it. And while 2024 has been a great start, she has been having a tough time since then.
In a recent post on her Instagram, she opened up all about and wrote, “ So this year has started rough. This is the way I see it. You cannot escape life. well, actually, you can but I ain’t doing that. There will be ups and there will be downs. There will be great love and there will be brutal losses.” But she realized that you can’t really escape sorrows just like how you can’t escape happiness. After all life is all about the mixes of everything. We all face a little bit of everything from pain to joy. “Certainly happiness is more… fun. I am so grateful for the beautiful people I have in my life, including you folks. As years go on, I have learned to put more emphasis on what’s right. What’s good. What I loved,” she said.

Every once in a while we have to stop, and look around and appreciate and be grateful for the things we have. The good and the bad. Stafford is very much aware of it but the main thing she is getting at is just about “love”. She ended her note saying, “Just love. Keep on keeping on, and keep on living a great life. The time here is as great as you make it.”
After her post all her supporters and fans hopped in the comments to motivate her even more. One of them also wrote, “A belief that there is something more glorious than this earth awaiting us gets me through the hard days, Michelle. Big hug from this random stranger and fan.”
Looks like Stafford is really going through a loss of someone right now. While she is keeping the details all private, let’s all respect it. We‘re pretty sure she can move on and focus on the brighter things in no time.
