Although it might seem rather vacuous to be interested in Brad and Angelina,
okay, stop right there, you might be thinking, what the heck does “vacuous” mean? I kept trying to come up with the appropriate word (I was coming up with “stupid”, “not spiritual”, “low minded”) and I know the word “vacuous” so I looked it up and sure enough the definition is: “silly, inane, unintelligent, insipid, foolish, stupid, fatuous, idiotic, brainless, witless, vapid, vacant, empty-headed; dumb, moronic, brain-dead, fluffy, fluffball.”
I love finding words that have so many meanings and are so nuanced.
Okay, back to the topic — While on some level it might seem foolish and unintelligent and brainless and vapid and fluffball, and even though it might feel like we’re gossiping, that’s not what this is about. When I heard the news, I literally exclaimed out loud “Oh no!” and I genuinely cared. My very first thought was, “if people like that who seem to have everything can’t make it work, who can?”
So here are 3 reasons why this situation offers you some important life lessons:
1. It’s never the stuff on the outside that makes us happy and content, it’s always the stuff on the inside.
I spent so much of my life telling myself that I couldn’t be happy until I had _______________. It was always something — more money, thinner body, better relationship. I talk about this a lot in my new book, The Journey to Happy, [coming next month!] because one of the huge aspects of the Journey for me was finally getting it, that it is NEVER about the outside stuff making us happy, it’s always the inside job.
And I see it now with people that we work with all the time. They tell themselves they can’t be happy unless and until they have the great job, a certain amount of money, until they’re thin, have the great relationship, etc., etc.
Here are 2 people who (seemingly) had it all. I mean, really, these two had everything — beauty, brains, money, love, children, fabulous homes, travel, exciting careers, an interest in helping other people (and the means to do it). And it still wasn’t enough.
2. Another person can’t make you happy, only you can make you happy.
If Brad Pitt can’t make you happy, what does it take? Well, the answer is very simple. Another person can’t make you happy. A fabulous, loving relationship can add greatly to your happiness, but it simply isn’t going to make you happy if you’re not already basically happy. If you want to be happy, you’ve got to find a way to be happy within yourself.
3. You can’t take anything for granted in life (or in relationship). If stuff is going on, it’s got to be dealt with.
The internet is awash with rumors about what went wrong. I don’t know what it was, but I do know this. If stuff is going on in your life (or your relationship), you’ve got to do something about it. And if you don’t, things start to fall apart.
What’s the stuff you’ve got going on? Are you happy? Are you unhappy?
Are you living your life in peace and fulfillment or are you stressed out and burned out?
Do you feel calm most of the time, or fearful and anxious?
Are you happy in your relationship or do you know there are issues that need to be addressed?
Are you living your life purpose or stuck in a job you hate?
If stuff is going on, it’s got to be dealt with. It’s as simple as that. If you don’t deal with it directly, you’ll end up dealing with it in some other way. For a lot of people if they don’t deal with something head on, they end up getting sick. As one of my teachers used to say, you can deal with it now while the Universe is nudging you, or you can wait until they hit you with a 2 x 4. Your choice.
Don’t wait until the Universe hits you with a 2 x 4. Do something. Now.
You deserve to have a happy, blissful life and a wonderful, loving, supportive relationship.
Don’t wait. We’ve had so many people come here after a divorce and tell us “I was blindsided. I had no idea she (or he) was so unhappy”. You know when something has to be dealt with.
