Baldwin continued, “Rock bottom sucks. But rock bottom is also eye opening. Because you understand and have experienced true pain. It makes the trolls seem even smaller than they usually are. Because no words they can use can ever compare to what you have lost.”
The actor’s wife went on to call out those who “are bringing a cruelty to the world that is wrong. You are contributing to feelings of shame, fear, insufferable pain. It is for this reason that I have stepped forward and shared as I have. Not for attention, but because it is my life story and I decided to open up. You think I wanted this???”
“Because of societal pressure, most of us stay silent,”she added. “And this can be one of the loneliest pains possible. I’m trying to promote the gift of being able to share what is going on … Just to know that we are not alone, and we are not ‘broken.” We are just opening ourselves up to love. And we should never be ashamed of this… even when it doesn’t go as planned.”
As previously reported, Alec and Hilaria shared the heartbreaking news that she had suffered her second miscarriage this month after revealing back in April she had suffered another one.
