On Monday, the 48-year-old actress shared a handful of goofy photos on Instagram to show off some of the outfits she’s donned since the beginning of the coronavirus quarantine.
In the comments, a follower opened up about her recent struggles and her admiration of Garner’s “happiness.”
“I wish I had your happiness and feeling of security. And I don’t say that resentfully because you present yourself as a good and kind person. Your actions show you to be good and kind,” said the Instagram user, per Us Weekly. “It’s that I have finally gotten the courage to tell my husband to leave after years of emotional abuse and I feel like I will never find happiness or security.”
“I find a sense of balm from seeing yours but it’s also mixed with a winsome feeling because I don’t think I’ll ever be there,” admitted the fan. “He is so vindictive and powerful and I have nothing and no one. Why am I saying this to a stranger? I really don’t know.”
A few hours later, the “13 Going on 30” star offered support to the fan.
‘Your heart sounds heavy, I am so sorry,’ she began.
‘Hopefully you have powerful women in your corner, reminding you of your strength and your worth.’
‘Hopefully, you are able to calm your mind with prayer/meditation/ exercise/ art. Laughter will come and really — it is worth fighting for. Until then, all of my love.’
The actress, of course, went through a public breakup of her own when she and ex-husband Ben Affleck called off their marriage in 2015.
