So what if a stranger asked you to hop off the train and explore an unknown city with you and you two just had one night, and that one night only, together.
This movie “Before Sunrise” really made me think and question my thoughts about love. The dialogue so true and raw. At some point the girl main character Celine says two quotes that I love:
“I kind of see this all love as this, escape for two people who don’t know how to be alone. People always talk about how love is this totally unselfish, giving thing, but if you think about it, there’s nothing more selfish.” (in Before Sunrise)
“I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn’t everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?” (in Before Sunrise)
So let’s all appreciate where we are at. If you’re Single and happy. If you’re in a relationship and happy. Because is that what everyone needs? Happiness. Not some societal judgement of where you should be in you’re love life? Or any life? Married life? Career life? Screw the judgements. Live how you want and Pursue your own passions and desires for life, there’s no bloody book to abide by.
Have a happy and blessed weekend everyone. Xo Ji
