From Contrary to Co-Creation
How does a strong-willed girl go from being dead set against what her boyfriend wants … to carrying out his exact wishes?
Let’s ask Angelina Jolie, who said getting pregnant “never felt like the right thing to do.”
Brad, on the other hand, was very interested in having children of his own.
After adopting three children over the years, Angelina & Brad gave birth to twins a few months ago.
Have you ever been on the complete opposite side of a hot issue with an important player in your life, like a boss or spouse or police officer?
I know I have. And I’d like to say I always handle it as well as Brad did, but that would not be entirely accurate.
Here’s what Us Magazine reported about Angelina & Brad’s dilemma:
Staunch adoption advocate Angelina Jolie says she never intended to get pregnant – but beau Brad Pitt helped change her mind.
“I think one of the life changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant. I never felt that it was the right thing to do,” Jolie, 33, says in November’s W. “Now I wouldn’t trade that experience for the world. It taught me a lot about life, just the process of it, and now we have three other beautiful children that wouldn’t otherwise be here.”
After adopting Maddox, Zahara and Pax, “[Brad] stopped talking about having other kids in the other way [by natural birth]. So I suppose in my heart, I realized that he was happy with them as his children, completely,” Jolie says in the interview, as excerpted by Access Hollywood.
“I knew he would never see them as different, and that gave me a certain peace. Then I suppose I just looked at him and loved him and just felt open to [getting pregnant]. I suddenly wanted to. It’s one of those things you can’t explain,” she adds.
Oh, I think perhaps Law of Attraction could explain it, don’t you think?
Gathering from Angelina’s words, it seems Brad had no resistance and no need for things to be different. He achieved the peace that Tia and Kim mentioned in the Fries post comments.
Couple that with a strong desire and … well, welcome to the world Knox and Vivienne!
