In a recent interview with US magazine Halle berry talks about her attempt to commit suicide over a failed relationship and how she backed out at the last minute.
“I didn't slit my wrists. I went into the garage and took my two dogs with me. I would never shoot my brains out. I thought, I'll just lie down and go to sleep. I'll sit in the car and I'll asphyxiate myself. I had a bottle of wine. Car on, garage door shut.
I was just going to…as I cried my eyes out…not wake up. Somewhere in that half-hour, the only thing that stopped me…because I was really ready to go, I was ready…is that I thought about my mother. All I ever wanted to do was to be the good girl, and how disappointing would this be? How much would this kill her and hurt her?"
She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do. It was all about a relationship. My sense of worth was so low. I promised myself I would never be a coward again.”
I think most of the gals, at one point in their life, found themselves in a bad relationship. I myself thought about ending it all once, luckily didn’t succeed. It’s only after that moment that we realize how stupid and low that is. I’m so glad Halle is doing so much better now. You go girl!
