SO I MIGHT HAVE MY FIRST CABARET SINGING JOB?
Haven’t been feeling well lately.
Going to spend the day relaxing, hopefully that will make me feel better.
Me during the whole month of December.
This part of The Corpse Bride resonated with me more than almost any other scene in a movie until I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild last year. This movie came out before I was a teenager, and I remembered this line more than anything: "I love you Victor, but you’re not mine."
I have felt this situation about 10,000,000 times. I will easily put someone else’s happiness before my own, and I have done it time and time again. Unrequited love? I figure that if I really do care about the person (and I’m often quite quiet about such matters, I don’t flirt, so it never becomes voiced), and they’re with someone else, then I should be happy. Because if I love them, I would want them to be happy, regardless of if it was with me, or not.
Non-romantically, this works too. I’ve had friends ditch me. And I suppose if they’re happy, then I should be happy. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. It doesn’t mean I move on easily. But is a sacrifice that I make.
So even when I was younger and I saw this in theaters, I remembered thinking that there was someone out there who thought the same way that I did, even if it was a corpse voiced by HBC.
So this is just me randomly blathering on about sentimental movie quotes, but this has always resonated with me so much. I’ll go be sad somewhere else now! :3
Please send me lots of letters, Santa.
I love letters.
