Jill Biden says things get better, including after divorce

Source: AP

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jill Biden offers comforting advice to Kelly Clarkson, telling the singer and talk-show host who is going through a divorce that things happen for the best and that life will eventually “look better.”

The first lady — a divorcee herself — also reveals what she looks forward to when COVID-19 clears up and explains why women should take time for themselves every day, as she does. She spoke during an interview with Clarkson that is set to air nationally on Thursday.

Clarkson recently brought her show to the White House for a socially distant conversation with Biden in the East Room. NBC released interview excerpts Wednesday, including a clip of the first lady offering comforting words about carrying on after a relationship breakup.

Citing her late mother’s advice, she tells Clarkson things happen for a reason. She also says her divorce freed her to meet Joe Biden and have a family with him.

4. I misunderstood, others might too. Or it could just be because I'm old.

I see you made that clear. Good.

9. oh dear..

with all due respect to Dr. Biden - I truly understand her need to rationalize and offer a salve, but the trope "things happen for a reason" is, well...facile at best. I doubt her husband could say that the death of his wife, daughter and son happened for a reason.

10. Things do get better. But one cannot completely avoid suffering.

The only thing one can do is try and control one's response to the suffering. But this is easier said than done, as we all know.
