I just watched a movie called Another Earth…it really got me thinking.
I really enjoyed the movie, but for those of you who haven’t seen it, here is a brief summary.
Another Earth appears in the sky one day, the same day a 17 year old girl who just got accept to a top university. After leaving a house party, drunk, she wrecks into another car, killing a pregnant wife, son, and putting the father into a coma. She is later sentence to 4 years in prison. She gets out, and is really confused, a change person.
Anyway, I don’t really want to spoil the rest, but I will talk a little about my feelings after watching the movie.
I feel like I have a lot of love to give, but its almost like I set my standards so high that I never find anyone qualified enough to give my love too. Love means different things to different people. I discovered what it was about 15 months ago for the first time in my life, and it wasn’t lust, it wasn’t puppy love, it wasn’t even one particular person.
Loving another person is giving them total honesty. Giving them complete interest and caring deeply. Now, I know what sounds very cliche, so let me explain this in more detail. But before I do, I want you to realize what I’m really saying here.
Complete honesty. Ask yourself, do you know what that really means? Have you ever given someone complete honesty? 3 years ago I would of read this and been like sure… ya, whatever, I have. But I hadn’t. I was blind to what it really is. Maybe complete honesty is only part of what I’m trying to say.
Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes with complete interest in who they are, completely care about them, and felt like nothing else in the world was more important than the time you are both sharing. All you wanted to do was sit there next to each other and talk about your feelings, your ideas, your dreams, your future, and at the same time, have the other person feel the exact same way?
Now what did all of that have to do with the movie? The actress delivered a great role in this film. She was so real and caring that it made me want to meet her character. While watching this movie, I wanted to sit next to her and talk about everything because I knew I would get a true and genuine response. I felt like she would truly listen to what I had to say. Most people are just nodding in recognition to you as they are really thinking about what they want to say next.
