Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reunited to show love and support to their daughters following medical surgeries. Their kids’ hospitalization did not only pave the way for the ex-couple to see each other again, it was also a quite an experience for the “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” actress, and here's why.

Jolie wrote a letter, straight from the hospital, about her realization regarding the things she learned from her daughters and other young girls. The said script was published in Time, Sunday, in celebration of the International Women’s Day.

In her letter, Jolie thought of how the notion caring came natural to girls and/or women. She pointed out the expectation of the society from a girl and a woman. That, oftentimes, girls are conditioned on the idea/notion that their self-worth is equal to how much they are serving others, and if they focus on their own needs and desires, they are being selfish.

These issues crept in her thoughts while she was in the hospital taking care of her two daughters. Zahara and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt underwent surgeries early this year and one particular source confirmed that Pitt’s children with ex-wife, Jolie, are currently recovering, E! News reported.

Jolie also revealed that her youngest daughter “studied the nurses with her sister” and offered assistance on the next. Jolie had reportedly seen and realized a lot during the course of her daughters’ hospitalization. She saw first-hand how their daughters prioritized one another and how they faced their fears with a “resolute bravery.” During this great ordeal, Jolie was grateful that her sons were very supportive too.

Jolie made an appeal, through her script, not to abuse girls and women. She said their rights are often violated; hence, the 44-year-old actress called for the subtle injustices and abusive-but-oftentimes-excused attitude directed against women to stop.

Jolie had her fair share of ordeal too, but she learned how to be strong, never give up and fight back. Needless to say, she wasn’t alone in facing the recent challenge in her family. Jolie was supported by her sons and her ex-husband, Pitt.

In fact, a source told the news outlet E! News that her other kids were very patient and helpful. The source additionally revealed that both her and Pitt stayed by their kids’ side and showed a huge amount of love and concern.

Moreover, there were multiple sources who reportedly confirmed to Page Six that Pitt ditched his trip to London to attend BAFTAs just to be with her daughters.
