We thought this was such a profound article, Brad Pitt portrays the man who has everything but his denial nearly killed him. Makes you question: when you think you have absolutely everything in the world, do you really have everything that matters to you?
“That’s the thing about becoming un-numb. You have to stare down everything that matters to you. That’s it! Sitting with those horrible feelings, and needing to understand them, and putting them into place. In the end, you find: I am those things I don’t like. That is a part of me. I can’t deny that. I have to accept that. And in fact, I have to embrace that. I need to face that and take care of that. Because by denying it, I deny myself. I am those mistakes. For me every misstep has been a step toward epiphany, understanding, some kind of joy. Yeah, the avoidance of pain is a real mistake. It’s the real missing out on life. It’s those very things that shape us, those very things that offer growth, that make the world a better place, oddly enough, ironically. That make us better.” Brad Pitt
