Angelina Jolie Confesses That She Does Not Enjoy Being Single
The 42-year-old actress, has been separated from the ultimate family man Brad Pritt for almost a year now. Angelina has admitted that she does not find single life really all that appealing! Yikes, you think? With six kids? I truly feel that Angelina and Brad still love each other very much but both have addictive personalities which came into play of them separating. Brad with alcohol and Angelina with….well just plain OCD control, which I guess is what Brad found appealing about her. She is a marvelous and an unconventional mother but possibly not a great partner as she stays driven. I feel she misses the finer points of what a relationship with an adult is. But one thing is for sure, I truly believe Jolie is heartbroken that her marriage to Pitt did not make it.
Jolie filed who filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, got pretty candid in her recent interviews about life now as a single parent. “I don’t enjoy being single,” she told the Sunday Telegraph. “It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.” Jolie and Pitt, the former Hollywood power couple, met on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” and were together for 12 years and married for two. The couple split in September 2016 and Jolie’s life since has been physically and emotionally taxing. “Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days.” “Emotionally, it’s been a very difficult year,” she added. “I have had some other health issues. So, my health is something I have to monitor.”
In 2013, Jolie had a preventative double mastectomy and in 2015, she had her ovaries removed. She took this route due to both her mother and aunt dying of breast cancer. Last year, around the time of her breakup, she also developed hypertension and Bell’s palsy, which causes a drooping in the face, due to damaged facial nerves. Yet she states in her interview that she is trying to stay positive. “I feel sometimes that my body has taken a hit but I try to laugh as much as possible,” she said. “We tend to get so stressed that our children feel our stress when they need to feel our joy. Even if you are going through chemo, you need to find the ability to love and laugh. It may sound like a postcard, but it’s true.” Jolie recently moved into a permanent residence in the Los Angeles area with her six children. She’s now embracing a more domestic role within her family, including cooking classes and is looking forward to recapturing her old spark. “I think now I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me,” she said. “I think we lose our way a bit. I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising the children. But maybe now that my kids are growing up I am starting to realize that my own sense of play has been put on hold for a while. And maybe them hitting their teens is going to bring out a little more fun in Mom. So maybe I am going back. It may be time.”
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
There have been plenty of rumors about a reconciliation between Pitt and Jolie but a lot of healing has to be done before that will ever take place. They are both extremely independent people who LOVE kids but I don’t think either one of them know how to maneuver a relationship without the kids being a focal point. It also doesn’t help that both of them are workaholics.
Ultimate success at a project and happy conclusion. I believe this card is how Jolie feels about her healing process. She is still grieving but gives herself credit for surviving whole after being ball batted both emotionally and physically the last two or so years.
Six of Cups:
Forgiveness of the past and nostalgia. This card pull shows she has forgiven Brad and also herself for the breakdown of their relationship but also misses the close family they once had.
Four of Swords:
Emotionally exhausted and wanting to retreat from the world. Need I say more!
