Vanessa Williams and her family are being featured in the May issue of Ebony/Jet magazine. In the issue,Vanessa talks about life after divorce,motherhood,and living through the pains of life. Here are a few quotes from Ms. Williams:
“The best things have always been something that I’ve never really planned on and I think maybe that’s just my pattern in life,” says Williams.
“Everything is unexpected is a great premise to live by because you never know. To worry about what might happen, to try to control might happen is futile. It’s a release when you can approach life like that,” says Williams.
For a woman who says “I love being married,” being twice divorced has been devastating….”Divorce is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through in my life. It’s like a death, and it doesn’t get easier either time. Because it’s a dream that dies, and it’s heartbreaking,” says Williams.
“….So listening to sad music, crying all day, not wanting to get out of bed. It’s a grieving process. You have to feel the pain in order to process a big part of that is also forgiving the other person and forgiving yourself for feeling like you failed,” says Williams.
