Becoming Madness

I was browsing my facebook news feed when this share caught my attention.

Brad Pitt about his wife:

My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much.

And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.

If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it.

Brad Pitt

 

The thing is, I am not a member of the Brangelina fan base. I am more like of Brad and Jenny just because they look good together for they are both blondes (Brangeline fans, you can throw eggs at me now). My point is I have chosen sides with a shallow basis. I don’t even know them these three persona so well in the first place. I have been judgmental.

BUT, when I read that article, I was instantly in love with their love for each other. Angeline must have experienced abstinence, restraining from human interaction. (FYI, abstinence must not necessarily mean abstaining from sexual activities. Abstinence can mean passing away with other things other than sex like food, alcohol, the internet, etc.) I don’t know what she went through, but I am sure it was not a pleasing one. Brad Pitt destroyed the scales of chivalry with this one and I adore him as a man, as a husband.

I was given the chance of becoming Brad (or a dove, Angeline is a hand) in the past. I did everything I could, but each move was destructing my character, slicing up my heart and I was fastly becoming a withered cactus. I gave up. I guess not everyone can fix a broken person. Or perhaps, I was not the right one to fix that somebody.

I hope everyone who are broken out there gets to be fixed by someone, be it a friend, a lover or a stranger.
