My heart breaks into pieces whenever I hear a break up and specially when a marriage falls apart. It’s not just difficult for the couples to bounce back but it’s difficult for the kids to accept the whole separation. We all have heard about a lot of celebrity’s separation but when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt parted ways, many hearts shattered.
It’s been almost a year since their separation and none of them said anything to media about their separation. Recently in an interview with Vogue, Jolie, opened up for the first time about her growing responsibilities as a single mother. She said:
“I was very worried about my mother, growing up—a lot. I do not want my children to be worried about me. I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them. They need to know that everything’s going to be all right even when you’re not sure it is. It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air. [This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal our family. Our lifestyle was not in any way a negative. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children. They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them. We care for each other and care about our family, and we are both working towards the same goal. He’s been very good at understanding they needed their grandfather at this time. He knows kind of the rule: Don’t make them play with you. Just be a cool grandpa who’s creative, and hang out and tell stories and read a book in the library. I’ve been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories. And I’m getting better at all three. I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house. That’s my passion. As I go to sleep at night, I think, Did I do a great job as a mom or was that an average day?”
Jolie is currently taking a break from work and is in the midst of a serious domestic phase. While separation is sometimes the only option that is necessary to move on, life post divorce needs patience and genuine efforts and both the actors are doing a great job at it.
What a beautiful couple it was!!
