Hello My Beauties
Watch this video first and then read this post, it will make a bit more sense!
My most serious relationship didn’t last very long, and I have to say that I’m not quiet sure if it was “true love”, but I do think that it was some kind of love. We definitely had our ups and downs, but somehow we continued to forgive and forget. That is until the bad started to outweigh the good.
“I miss you. Not ‘I regret what happened’ or ‘I want to see you again’. Just… I miss you.” This was how it felt after we broke up. I knew that it was the right thing to do, but there was still this piece of me that felt weird and indescribable. It was that kind of feeling that you get at one in the morning and you don’t really know why. It was a part of me that missed loving someone so much, and being loved in return.
This short film by Nick L’Barrow hits you where you don’t expect it to. It tells the story of two people who “loved without reason”, and felt the loss when it was over. It’s real, honest, and painful because I believe that we’ve all experienced these feelings in our own ways. When we breakup, we end something beautiful, so it’s understandable that it hurts so damn much.
So when you’re at the computer, pouring your heart out in an email addressed to the one that you once loved (which we have all done), maybe it’s better not to send it. Maybe it’s better to move forward, to miss what has gone missing, and to love again. Maybe it’s better to start another, equally beautiful relationship with someone just as amazing. Maybe it’s better to love again and risk what you have, than to chase what’s already been lost. Just some food for thought.
Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,
