Gabrielle Union Opens Up About Acknowleding Pain & Finding Happiness

Gabrielle Union is featured in Good Housekeeping‘s April issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to say…

On writing her book and her journey to finding happiness: “Writing my book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, was therapeutic…whether I was talking about sexual assault, failed marriages or finding joy in being my authentic self. Acknowledging you’re in pain is the first step, and then seeking help. The online community is full of people going through the exact same thing you are.”

On surrounding yourself with only positive people: “If anyone in your life is making you feel bad…they need to be cut off. Give yourself permission to let go.”

On confidence boosters: “If your soul is singing, you’re going to look freaking amazing no matter if you’re wearing couture or a dope thrift store find. Fashion comes from the inside out.”
