Grief and hurt can do a lot to your well being. Lots of things can happen to different people when this happens, you could go on an eating binge, become depressed, drink like a fish , or all of the above or even other things that are un thinkable.
For Mr. Reeves this could be what has happened. He has gone through so many losses and I’m sure that has taken a tole on him. Recently he has returned to acting and looking better than ever. Maybe he is channeling his loss and grief into something that he loves creatively.
You can either rise above the ashes of your loss or just stay where you are, in your own pit of despair .
