Panget's mom has been convincing me for months to watch this movie. She said watching it may help me and my Panget in our future endeavor, that we should see it together - but for those who know me, I am not a mapilit person - I don't force anything on my Panget, he's free to do as he pleases (just as long as he knows his boundaries - isn't Panget the luckiest? Yes! But does he know? I hope he does!!)
It took me a while to finally see it, but at long last - I have!!
The movie is great, I mean it teaches us that love is immeasurable, giving, forgiving and most of all patient. Love sees no limits, no boundaries, and most of all is free for everyone to enjoy and cherish. The movies does address many issues that all couples face everyday. The movie teaches us to love wholly, freely and without asking for anything in return. It is very ideal, especially to those who have faith, or believe in something. There's a great feeling after watching the movie, it inspires you, makes you want to be a better person in the 'couple'.
I learned a LOT in the movie, a whole lot! BUT I have questions - I mean, the movie is set in a perfect, ideal set-up - with only one side of the couple's story that is focused on. What about the other person?
Love is indeed a many splendored thing, it moves mountains, and sees through the dark - but what if the other does not realize what the other is trying to do? How does one block out the feeling that he or she is being taken advantaged of? How can one stay in a relationship that is half empty? The movie ended positively - because Catherine realized what she had been playing blind to, but what if she never realizes this? What will happen?
I remember very well - a saying that was taught us during our Days With The Lord in ICA: Love till it hurts. Love till it hurts some more. Love till it hurts no more.
That saying I took into heart - but then there are days that I ask myself, when is too much - too much? There are times that I feel like I have given so much, and wonder why is it that I receive so little? I am a very shallow person when it comes to emotions, I appreciate every 'Thank You' said to me, I cherish those words very much - that's why I give them so freely to people I meet. A simple gesture of a hug, a smile, or even a tap on the shoulder saying its okay - is very much appreciated. I've learned from my mom - that when you love a person, you try your very best to do what that person likes, because it makes that person happy! But what about me? Who should make me happy? There are moments that I feel so loved by my Panget and there are times that I feel so unappreciated and ignored. For those who know me well, a hug means a lot to me - I'm a very 'huggy' person - and my Panget knows this by heart - but why does he not do it? Why does he need to be reminded every single time, hurtful diba? Na kailangan mo pa hingin bago mo makuha? But what can I do right? All I can do is sit pretty and wait - but till when can I wait? My butt will be sore from waiting right?
The movie teaches us to be patient and loving - but what I want to know is - what am I supposed to do when I get to the point of questioning my worth? I can't just keep on doing the 'The Love Dare' over and over again right? Hahahaha!!
These are just my thoughts - feel free to reacting - positively, negatively or violently!
Have you seen the movie? Let me know your thoughts!
Yes, it makes the world go 'round. It moves mountains, it sees in the dark (since love is blind), its not selfish, it a great feeling!
And we all have LOVE inside of us..
Last weekend, there was nothing interesting on TV so while I was channel surfing - I caught an episode of the latest season of Ghost Whisperer. Honestly, I was never into these types of shows - I am a self-confessed 'chicken' when it comes to these things. But the episode I saw, well - it intrigues me so much! Thus - I bought the DVD of the latest season.
True enough, the show is quite interesting - I always had the impression that the show was 'freaky' but when I saw that Jamie Kennedy was around, well - it won't be as serious as I thought! Hahaha. He sure is the comic relief!
Just a few seconds ago - I found myself in tears. There was this scene, the funeral scene of Jim - he was attending his own funeral, he was glad that there was a great turnout at his funeral, but his wife Mel (Jennifer Love Hewitt) who sees ghosts can't see or sense him! Then when one of the cops plays a rock music on the iPod dock - and started dancing, my eyes were watering up. When Mel finally stood up and danced - I was in tears! I can't explain why, but I felt the love, I really did!! I felt the love Mel had for Jim, I felt the love that made her stand up and dance - at her husband's funeral!! And when she finally saw him - I was bawling like a baby!! The tears just won't stop!! Hahahaha...
I am excited to see the future epis of this series!!
