Sarah McLachlan's okay now, but when she got divorced back in 2008 it was a whole different, devastating deal.
Now that she's able to see it in a different light, she's been able to be really unfiltered about it too:
"Yeah, the marriage part didn't quite work out. Apparently that's a bit of an epidemic, so I just make light of it. Coming to terms with the fact that my marriage was a failure was devastating and very difficult. I blamed myself for a lot of things. It took me a very long time to get over it.
"I have amazing friends, great family and two kids, so I just got out of bed everyday and kept moving forward. I'm not one to sit and wallow — I would rather figure out a way around so I can move past it and be at peace with things. I don't like bad feelings gnawing away at me.
"So I've certainly done a lot of growing up in the past couple of years, recognizing bad traits in myself and others."
Well, this is definitely proof that time really does make a difference in how a person gets through sadness. It's wonderful to see that she's moved past that dark period of her life and has been able to keep everything together.
Splits can be painful, but never painful enough to give up hope! Time is powerful!
