Nearly two years after her divorce from musician, Robin Thicke, Paula Patton is opening up about their divorce being so public.
In an interview with People, she talked about life since her divorce and moving on…
“I don’t think you can control that,” Paula told People. “You just keep living your life and have faith that everything sorts itself out. Be patient, I’m learning that later in life it’s like, ‘All in due time,’ and the real goal is to find joy in the right now. Focusing on what I have right now is really good and not be concerned with things I can’t control: How other people see me, what they say, it’s wasted energy for me and it’s never done me any good.”
“It’s not that it’s every day, you fight for it,” she says. “I want more joy. I want more happiness. I have a beautiful son [Julian Thicke, 6]. I’ve been lucky to do what I’ve done and to focus on anything else is such a waste. It’s a discipline because trust me we all go there. What I’m striving for is to have more joy, play, have fun with this life. Growing older is a good thing in that way, right? Keep on trucking. You have to find the place where it gets comfortable and easier.”
