Living your life in the public eye is a lot of pressure. We often wonder how celebrities handle it.
Moreover, having your relationship play out in public can be damaging to your reputation and state of mind. We have seen many a celebrity going in and out of relationships and it’s not something we would want for ourselves.
Singer Fantasia is one such celebrity, in a recent interview by an American publication she let us into her life after failed relationships and just 2 years after settling down with the love of her life, husband Kendall Taylor. Her story is reminiscent of a phoenix rising from the ashes. The two wed in 2015 after only a few short weeks of dating. Admittedly broken and insecure at the time, the mother of two says she found her perfect guy by switching up her approach to love.
This is what she had to say:
I fasted for seven months while I was doing my last Broadway play, After Midnight. I started realizing that what I was doing wasn’t working for me, so I did something very corny and I put a ring on my own finger. I did a lot of praying and watched a lot of things that were good for my spirit. Me and Kendall married before we made love, so it wasn’t about my body or my money. He was a man with his own business and he was also a man with a past. I think I fell in love with that the most because he did not let his past block his future. He has a story and a testimony, too.”
The lessons she’s learning from this new love are even more encouraging.
“Love is fragile,” she says. “You have to be patient with love. You have to make sure that the way you carry yourself, the words that come out of your mouth, that you’re being careful because we’re both still human.”
These are the words of a wise woman, one who has been through all the trials and learned from her mistakes. We are glad she finally found love. 6 Things You Need To Do For Your Next Relationship To Survive
