In 2018, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner finalized their divorce after being married for a total of 14 years.
The impact that Ben Affleck’s split from Jennifer Garner had on his mental health was significant, and there’s no sugarcoating that fact. He has referred to it as the “biggest regret of his life.
Fame and riches by themselves are not enough to ensure victory in every conflict. Sometimes money and popularity may even make a bad situation much worse.
For instance, Princess Diana’s life was ruined in part because she was unable to have any privacy and because everyone was watching her.
In addition, having a lot of money means having a lot to spend on risky and addictive activities, which is something that a lot of famous individuals have done in the past.
Both Affleck and Garner struggled with substance concerns, and this contributed to their growing estrangement from one another.
The risk of relapsing is rather high, and sobriety itself is a difficult and taxing state to sustain. Affleck eventually relapsed and resorted to drinking as everything that was important to him began to come apart around him.
In spite of the fact that he maintains that avoiding that guilt served him well, he had overwhelming feelings of regret and humiliation. Shame may do a lot of damage. The feeling of shame does not produce any positive side effects.
According to Affleck, all it is doing is stewing in a poisonous, disgusting feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.
He realized that resorting to compulsive behaviors as a solution to one’s difficulties might, at times, make such problems much more difficult to cope with, which was one of the most important things he took away from all that had place.
And if you give in to them, a cycle that is hard to stop starts after you’ve established that pattern.
It seems like Affleck is making progress. He recently remarried, this time to Jennifer Lopez.
Affleck is ready to put all of his previous failures behind him and move on by making use of the lessons he has gained from them.
