Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have both kept mum with regards to the details of their divorce last year. The two have remained as good friends while carrying their responsibilities as parents to their kids. Now that all wounds of the past are healed, he have spoken about his personal encounter with how he faced the fallout of their married life.
According to E! News, the Coldplay front man had an interview with the program Australian radio 2DayFM. In this sit-down interview, he revealed both the ups and downs of the phase wherein their divorce becomes an inevitable option for their 10-year long married relationship and all for the sake of both parties. “A few years ago I was in a low place in my life and was feeling kind of down and confused”, he shared.
He also claimed that some literary pieces helped him in the healing process of their broken relationship. “Some friends gave me a book called Man’s Search for Meaning, and a poem called ‘The Guest’ House by an Afghanistani poet, teacher, and those two things started me off on this whole journey that’s ended up a few years later now where I just feel so happy to be alive.”
He becomes very expressive with how grateful he is with the simple pleasures and gifts of life. “That may sound a little simple but I suddenly feel very grateful for all these things in my life. I just feel happy to be alive and if it’s coming across then that’s because it’s real.” With his statements, he sure does show to the whole world how pain can be turned into strength.
Paltrow has mentioned before how things are going between them following the divorce. In a report from Huffington Post, she stated her insight in the July 2015 BlogHer event. She explained, “It’s been hard, and you know, we’ve gone through really difficult times with it but we’ve always said these children are our priority.”
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin proves that anyone can still be the good parents that their children look up to even though the marriage have already failed.
