My Take on the Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Drama!
Let me start by saying anyone that is shunning Brad Pitt for the below statement is just looking to create some drama. So many of us, myself included, have pretended that our marriage was something it wasn’t.
His entire quote uses the pronouns I and my and never puts the blame of Jennifer. He is taking full responsibility for his share in the marriage failing. He wasn’t living an interesting life and being married to someone that wasn’t right for him would certainly contribute to it.
Brad took responsibility for his own feelings in the relationship. He felt pathetic which likely didn’t keep the spark of the marriage going. Never once did he put the blame on her. When going through a divorce so many blame the ex and never address how they were feeling. They obsess on all the awful things the spouse did to them in the marriage and fail to use the experience as a chance to learn. In the end the bitterness lingers and the patterns repeat. Even if you were married to the biggest jerk on the planet you personally played a role in this and need to discover what that was in order to ever move on. Perhaps you were feeling unhappy, perhaps you ignored cheating signs, or gave your spouse permission to mistreat you early on? Whatever it is that you experienced, the sooner you identify your contribution to the failed relationship the sooner you will be in a place to find true and lasting love!
I commend Brad for being able to express his feelings without attacking Jennifer. I commend Brad for learning from his failed marriage and being able to find a healthy relationship the second time around.
If you are still angry and bitter about your cheating, lying or piece of crap ex take my advice. Look at what you can learn from this, let the anger go and use the experience to bring you closer to finding true love!
See below for the exact quote.
“I spent the ’90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony . . . It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” -Brad Pitt
