Terry McMillan on Getting to Happy
Terry says she decided to sue Jonathan to clear up misconceptions that surfaced during their contentious divorce proceedings. In particular, Terry says she wanted to dispute accusations of homophobia. "[Jonathan] had told lies about me that were in legal documents that were now on the Internet forever," she says. "I was never trying to sue him for his money. He didn't have any."
Terry says she withdrew the suit because she was tired of feeling the outrage. "Anger and bitterness, it's an emotional termite," she says. "You realize that it's your happiness and your joy that you are sabotaging and that the other person has absolutely nothing to do it."
