Paula Patton Speaks On Robin Thicke Split: “Everything Happens For A Reason”
It’s been over a year since we learned that Paula Patton and Robin Thicke are no more. And with the exception of a few brief comments regarding the matter, Paula has been fairly quiet about the breakup. Well, quiet in comparison to her estranged husband, who composed a full album in an attempt to reunite with the actress.
While Paula still doesn’t seem quite ready to share her side of the story, she did open up about how she has been handling the split over the past year.
“I’m doing really well,” the mom said Friday during an appearance on “Good Morning America.” “I mean, the honest truth is, it has been challenging. But it’s been a year of growth … learning about all new things.”
The Ellen Tracy brand ambassador went on to say that while things haven’t been easy, she’s a better person.
“I’ve come out of it stronger.”
The 39-year-old also seems to have taken on an optimistic outlook regarding the breakup.
“I feel like everything happens for a reason,” she shared. “And then you have to move on and grow from there.”
In addition to counting her blessings, Paula says her 4-year-old son, Julian, has helped her to get through the tough times.
“Be thankful for what you have. It’s so easy for all of us to focus on the negative, but usually, the positive in your life outweighs that. And you have to just be thankful for what you have right now. That’s what I try to work on.”
“The thing is, you can’t wallow in sadness or stay in bed when you have a child. And they’re so full of life and wonder. And he brings me so much joy.”
