Even Celebrities Struggle With Divorce

It’s not easy, and it doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are. Getting divorced isn’t easier when you have a lot of fans. As in Halle Berry’s case, divorce is difficult, even when you’re gorgeous and talented.

Halle Berry & David Justice

In 2005, after her marriage to David Justice fell apart, Berry almost gave in to the crushing weight of failure by attempting suicide with carbon monoxide poisoning. After imaging her mother finding her body, she reconsidered.

“I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me,” Bery said. “She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do. It was all about a relationship. My sense of worth was so low. I promised myself I would never be a coward again.”

Divorce Is Hard on Everyone

Being well connected, attending red carpet functions, and having the accolades of thousands of admiring fans doesn’t offset the pain of losing a relationship. In some ways, it helps level the playing field to know that everyone experiences loss in similar ways. It helps alleviate some anxiety to know that it wouldn’t matter if you were famous or rich – you’d still grieve.

Grieving is part of the process. Just hold on; you will get through it.
