There are a lot of hard things we have to encounter in our life. Some of us it seems has more hardships than others, but grief is something we will all eventually experience. It’s a hard road. Losing someone you love with all your heart is something that will stay with you for a lifetime and it’s hard. Navigating grief is confusing and it doesn’t seem to matter how long the person has been gone from your life, the sting is there. Michelle Williams knows this.
Michelle Williams lost the father of her child, Heath Ledger tragically after he died unexpectedly. Since then, the star has been raising the daughter they share. Being a single mother is not the easiest thing in the world, there are a lot of challenges to walk through. But there has to be an extra level of challenge and pain if your baby’s father is no longer able to be a part of their life.
One of the things that makes motherhood, single parenthood, and grief easier to walk through is friends. People who have your back and are there for you. To hold you up. Someone who can listen to your pain and bounce ideas off of. And having a best friend to hold you and be with you in the moments where grief or single parenthood becomes hard, is everything.
