A Little Love for You & Me

I watched The International yesterday. The best part about that movie? The scene in Istanbul, Turkey where the Turkish businessman was played by one of my favorite Turkish actors…I literally squee’d because the scene that they shot of Istanbul was GORGEOUS and ohmygod, I am SO homesick. *sigh*

And now for a little randomness…

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.” – Jim Morrison

“I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn’t know you had inside you. And it doesn’t matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of Chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends, you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new. And you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.”

Kate Winslet, Holiday

I’m finally there where I’ve met amazing people who make me feel worthwhile again.

“When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground, it makes a loud crashing sound. When a window shatters, a table leg breaks, or when a picture falls off the wall, it makes a noise. But as for your heart, when that breaks, it’s completely silent. You would think as it’s so important it would make the loudest noise in the whole world, or even have some sort of ceremonious sound like the gong of a symbol or the ringing of a bell. But it’s silent and you almost wish there was a noise to distract you from the pain.” Cecelia Ahern

Thank you for being my noise to distract me from the pain.

    Style is so amazing. It matters; a lot. They should’ve given us style lessons in school rather than math.

    I think it’s funny that in the Crayon picture, Bush’s name is the only one that’s capitalized.

    Also, you’re welcome. Thanks for giving me a home, Princess. <3
