HuffPost

Tracee Ellis Rosshas accomplished many of her dreams ― and even won some of the highest honorsher industry has to offer ― but it takes just one sentence for someone to make her feel diminished.

In an inspiring speech forGlamour’s Women of the Year Summit, the “Black-ish” star opened up about the way some people respond to her being a 45-year-old woman who is not married and does not have kids. 

“I’ve built a really incredible life, and I have become a woman that I am very proud to be. And then someone just walks up to you and is like, ‘You know, a friend of mine adopted at 52. It is never too late for your life to have meaning, sweetie!’ And my worth just gets diminished as I am reminded that I have failed on the marriage and the carriage counts.”

Ross went on to reveal how her life choices took a certain kind of bravery, one that she encourages all women to harness.
