Jennifer Garner Gives Advice to Fan Struggling With a Breakup
God, we love Jennifer Garner!
The actress recently took to Instagram to give encouraging advice to a fan battling a breakup. Her advice? Keep “fighting” for happiness.
“I have finally gotten the courage to tell my husband to leave after years of emotional abuse and I feel like I will never find happiness or security,” the woman wrote. “I find a sense of calm from seeing yours but it’s also mixed with a winsome feeling because I don’t think I’ll ever be there. He is so vindictive and powerful and I have nothing and no one. Why am I saying this to a stranger? I really don’t know.”
“Your heart sounds heavy, I am so sorry,” Jennifer wrote. “Hopefully you have powerful women in your corner, reminding you of your strength and your worth. Hopefully, you are able to calm your mind and heart with prayer/meditation/exercise/art. Laughter will come and really — it is worth fighting for. Until then, all of my love.”
Of course, Jennifer knows this battle firsthand. In 2018, she and husband Ben Affleck divorced after 13 years of marriage.
Together, she and Ben share daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, and 8-year-old son Samuel.
Ben recently called the divorce “the biggest mistake” of his life. Ouch.
Thank you for giving your wisdom, Jennifer.
