HAV­ING CA­REERS MAKES US BET­TER MOTH­ERS: HALLEBERRY

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Halle Berry (left) be­lieves that con­tin­u­ing to have a ca­reer and feel­ing “ful­filled” in her pro­fes­sional life makes her a bet­ter mother. The 50-year-old, who has daugh­ter Nahla, nine, with for­mer boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, and Maceo, three, with ex-hus­band Olivier Martinez, says that par­ent­hood has given her skills that help her in work, re­ported Peo­ple mag­a­zine. “Hav­ing ca­reers and be­ing ful­filled that way makes us bet­ter moth­ers. It makes us bet­ter able to op­er­ate in our ca­reers with a sense of com­pas­sion and em­pa­thy that make us bet­ter busi­ness­woman,” Berry says. How­ever, the ac­tor ad­mits she al­ways feels “a lit­tle bit guilty” and does not think it is pos­si­ble to find a per­fect bal­ance be­tween work and home life. “You don’t ever bal­ance it com­pletely. It’s a con­stant strug­gle of a lit­tle more time there, a lit­tle more time here, and feel­ing a lit­tle bit guilty all the time. I just keep telling all my mom friends who work that it’s OK to give our­selves a lit­tle slack some­time and not let the guilt sit on us so heav­ily and know that we are do­ing the best we can,” she says.
