Enter as a Stranger.. Leave as a Friend

Friday, December 10, 2010

Last night I was suppose to go out for a friends birthday. I feel bad for not going but My day started at 7am and I didn't even walk into my house until 10PM. The last thing I wanted to do was get all dolled up be social. Instead, I curled up on the couch with my roomie and watched the Notebook. I found it interesting how all the different times I had seen that movie, it has brought to the surface different emotions. The first time I watched it, I was utterly depressed. It ruined my entire week. Why? Because I was in a miserable relationship and watching Allie and Noah just put a spotlight on how unhappy I was. The second time I watched it, I was single, a bottle of wine deep, with mascara running down my face - Not pretty. Isn't it funny how other people's happiness can make us so miserable? So here I am today, completely in love, and happy. And what do you know? last night, Noah and Allie, simply made me smile. Thanks Ry! :)

I completely agree with your thoughts. That movie for me has festered up some emotions I'd rather not relive, but looking back it was because their happiness made us long for something we didnt have. However, our time finally came. :)

Do you ever feel guilty about talking about your happy relationship with single (depressed gfs)?

hahaha that's my all time favorite movie*! I think I've probably seen it more than 1,000 times.. and I still cry..!!* but not because of their happiness or anything.. but because of all the sad parts I guess..! even when I know their coming.. even almost having memorized (so not on purpose) the dialog... I still cry!* lol !! I just love that movie.. and of course.. Noah is simply hot! so that helps too lol
