When I was 27, I broke up with my boyfriend because I'd moved to New York to act and he'd stayed back home. He was a lovely, handsome, caring man, and I was devastated. Of course, I called my mom. I cried and cried, and then I asked her what I should do. She answered, simply, "Decide to feel better." The line went silent as I thought about that. My mom is the kind of person who believes in doing and practicality. If you see that the laundry needs to be folded, you fold it. If you feel sad, you try to get happy. I realized she was right; things don't have to be that complicated. So I chose to be grateful for the time I had spent with him—and excited for all the great things about to happen to me. —As told to Crystal G. Martin
