Beyonce Opens Up On The Life Lessons She Was Taught After Her Miscarriage
Beyonce recently opened up on her miscarriages before she and Jay-Z welcomed their first daughter Blue Ivy. The singer revealed that the miscarriages taught her life lessons
Beyonce is Queen Bey for a reason! Her popularity, talent and success have been unmatched and she has garnered a global fan following over her time in the industry. The international pop star is a mother to three children, Blue Ivy Carter, and twins Sir Carter and Rumi Carter - but the journey wasn't easy for Beyonce and Jay-Z. The singer has previously opened up about her miscarriages before she could conceive and give birth to Blue Ivy. Now, Beyonce looks back on the valuable lessons her miscarriage taught the singer. Just recently, the Crazy In Love singer participated in a candid question and answer session with her fans for her Elle cover story where she opened up about the life lesson her miscarriages taught her. The singer recalled the time she had a miscarriage and she was asked if she was "disappointed" after losing out on awards for her album Lemonade.

"I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn't know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I learned that all pain and loss is, in fact, a gift," Bey responded. "Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else. Then I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper," she added. "I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It's difficult for me to go backwards," Beyonce explained.

The singer also added that she was no longer hungry for the number one spot. She admits it is not her "priority" now. "My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That's fulfilling," she said. However, it is not easy. The singer admitted balancing work and her personal life has been "the most stressful thing” for her. "Making sure I am present for my kids—dropping Blue off at school, taking Rumi and Sir to their activities, making time for date nights with my husband, and being home in time to have dinner with my family—all while running a company can be challenging. Juggling all of those roles can be stressful, but I think that's life for any working mom," she concluded.
