The Emotional Experience: The Divine: A Play for Sarah Bernhardt gives us an opportunity to come clean about what it means to be human and to be happy by allowing self-examination to find in what ways our lives may be similar to parts of the play. While watching the play, we sympathize with the actors when we relate to the experiences or emotions they are feeling. This opens our eyes to the beauty in our lives that we couldn't see on our own. In result, we are happier and more accepting of what life throws our way. For example, in The Divine, Mrs. Talbot makes sacrifices for her children to have a better future. One might see this and be reminded of their own life if they are in a similar situation. Through this, they would recognize that rough times in life are just another aspect of being human and once they come to terms with this, develop into a happier person who is just one step closer to reaching their ideal good life.
