With the recent events that have just unfolded, Angelina Jolie has been under the spotlight once again. The actress of Tomb Raider became famous for her passionate romances with Jonny Lee, Billy Bob Thornton and Brad Pitt.
Relationships that were publicly portrayed due to their intensity and the strong involvement of the actress.
However, she has shown us that like everything else in life, love, relationships and romance evolve with time. Indeed, it is with a maturity that new priorities come and love tends to adapt to it.
A mature way of adapting to the evolution of love
Jolie, as most people, had a pretty intense youth with some energetic love stories. It seems that when we are young we see thing differently.
It might be because we love for the first time or that we think that our emotions and feelings are very special, youth and love are usually a very intense experience.
Popular wisdom says that first loves are the most powerful ones, however, Angelina Jolie’s dating life proves the contrary. Each love has its place in own’s life. First ones tend to be wild, intense and ephemeral. Second ones become even stronger, more attached and lasting.
From there on, the success of relationships just depends on their capability of adaptation to your own life, commitments, and preferences.
Love and priorities
The recent news regarding Jolie’s love life has become the top news of several magazines. But after all, the actress of Girl, Interrupted has just continued her love’s evolution.
After youth, first experiences and first broken hearts, romance starts to be as important and friendship, love perhaps starts to be divided between your partner and your children, and dating experiences become different.
Love has to face some priorities. Some might be for the best of somebody’s love life, others for the worse. But the most important thing is that we are still in control of our priorities. We choose them, the same way we choose to love.
