Oddly enough, I am going through my own breakup/divorce at this time, and Katy Perry actually helped get me through it. I kept worrying as I contemplated divorce that no one would ever want me again. (Turned out I was wrong Katy Perry’s video of fireworks, while making me look a bit less masculine was such an unbelievably positive message, that I would watch it over and over while crying.
What is super funny is that two weeks ago, I thought to myself, “I should go out with Katy Perry!” (Katy if you read this, and Russell is cool, give me a ring!). Then I Googled it, and found out that she is married to Russell Brand, who is in my opinion about the funniest person to ever walk the planet.
Having had to work out a lot of this myself recently, I am giving my 4 tips you can learn for divorce from Katy Perry and Russell Brands divorce.
1. Be positive about the other. Russell Brand is quoted as saying, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” It is so easy when going through the process of breaking up, splitting stuff up, and re-creating your lives, to get in fights and attack each other. Once that process leaves the home, and gets out on the streets, it is hard to pull it back in. By speaking so well of Katy, Russell allows us to continue to love him, and Katy at the same time, and not have to choose sides.
2. Money and Fame don’t solve everything. Each of us, whether rich or poor are responsible for working things out. Marriage is a big deal, a sacred trust, and requires constant work to make it work. Don’t think it is just because you are not successful enough, or don’t have enough money that you are fighting. Whether rich or poor, it is up to you to make it work.
3. Don’t rush into marriage. The two of them knew each other for 2 years. Although that may seem like a ton of time, and in some cases in may be enough, it is really important to know that other person very, very well, and spend lots of time with them, even past the initial OMG phase. It is only my opinion, but I have always suggested to friends that they live together for quite some time, before committing to get married.
4. Keep doing what you are doing. Just because the marriage is over, doesn’t mean you are. In fact, “wink” “wink” it might even be better after you guys split. You are who you are and you do what you do, so keep doing it, and now that maybe you have a little more free time, you can do more of the things that define you and that you truly love.
From the bottom of my heart, I wish each and every one of you find true love that lasts a lifetime. Katy and Russell, I love you guys together, and both of you individually have changed my life for the better though your work, but hey, if it doesn’t work out, Katy, please give me a call.
