One of the most difficult things a person can do is open himself or herself up to others. In a world run by social media and constant interaction, it is only natural to build up an outer wall, an exterior you that portrays just the parts of you that you want to be known by the world. But there is always something that you keep to yourself, something that becomes a part of the inner you.
One actress has shown sincere bravery by breaking down her walls and opening up to the public about her innermost feelings. Kathie Lee Gifford, an accomplished woman and talented actress, has finally stopped her silence after all these years.
Kathie Lee is a well-known name in most households; the woman has no shortage of talents. As a singer, songwriter, television show host, comedian, and actress, she is used to being in the limelight. After tragedy took place in her personal life, however, the star quickly made herself sparse.
Many wondered what was going on in her mind. Finally, Kathie Lee has agreed to break her silence. In an interview with I Am Second, the talented woman has shared her deepest thoughts and feelings with her fans.
Kathie’s career had a difficult beginning, but all of her problems had seemed to melt away when she met Frank Gifford, the man whom she would call her husband for 29 years. No relationship is without its problems, but these two made it work. Then one painful day in 2015, the actress discovered the devastating sight of her husband’s dead body.
She was shaken by the experience, but she always kept faith in her heart. “On a beautiful Sunday morning, I found my husband passed on to Heaven… He saw Jesus and Jesus took his breath away,” Kathie tells in the video.
This loss was met with another of equal weight when Kathie’s mother, Joan Epstein, joined Frank in the afterlife. The former star began to feel extremely isolated, and she has wrestled with these feelings ever since.
“My biggest struggle at this point of my life is loneliness,” the actress admitted. “I’ve lost my parents, my husband is gone now and my children live far away from me. I still live in the same big house where we made a gazillion million memories. And there are times when I am overwhelmed by loneliness.”
Fortunately, Kathie always remembers to fall on her faith. Knowing that God is on her side keeps her going and gives her hope for the future.
It takes a lot of courage to show your faults to the world, and this actress did so with elegance and grace. The way she wears her heart on her sleeve is an inspiration to countless others who struggle with feelings of isolation.
