This recently released separation announcement by a Hollywood power-couple is so sweet and lovely, one could almost buy into the notion that divorcing is nothing more than the wonderful, completely natural evolution of a healthy and progressive marriage.
This amicable split sounds like a fabulous stage in their relationship; that “beautiful adventure” they now realize is taking them to two different places….BUT hey, they are excited to “help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible” on these separate, happy trails.
“ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS CHANGED ABOUT HOW MUCH WE LOVE EACH OTHER.”
Nothing? Really…? 🤔
I’m not arguing that these two people needed to issue some nasty or sad statement. Frankly, they don’t owe anybody any tweet about anything..but please, in this era of fake news and fake life and general all around fakiness, can we inject just a touch of reality into what we say..or maybe just say nothing?
I know too many people in ‘Real-ville’ dealing with the never-ending after-shocks of busted marriages not to call out this “dreamy divorce” garbage. By all means, live your life, but for the safety of those who reflexively roll their eyeballs when confronted with BS, try to live it in truth!
And that’s my mini-rant for the morning…does this qualify as a work-out of any kind?
Oh well…enjoy your Wednesday!
