Just like that, our concerns about the future of Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich‘s marriage continue to grow.
On Wednesday, the 31-year-old shared a social media post about growing apart from loved ones that is seriously raising eyebrows, especially since the suspiciously timed message comes amid reports she and her professional hockey player husband have been going through a rough patch lately.
The Dancing with the Stars alum took to her Instagram Story and reposted a quote by psychology writer Heidi Priebe which read:
“To love someone long-term is to attend a thousand funerals of the people they used to be. The people they’re too exhausted to be any longer. The people they don’t recognise inside themselves anymore. The people they grew out of, the people they never ended up growing into. We so badly want the people we love to get their spark back when it burns out; to become speedily found when they are lost.”
The poignant message continued:
“But it is not our job to hold anyone accountable to the people they used to be. It is our job to travel with them between each version and to honour what emerges along the way. Sometimes it will be an even more luminescent flame. Sometimes it will be a flicker that disappears and temporarily floods the room with a perfect and necessary darkness.”
All things considered, it’s hard not to think Derek Hough‘s sister is alluding to the current and rocky state of affairs with Brooks.
