Right now, it’s about 11AM, and I am halfway through my term paper, and The Holiday with Jude Law, Jack Black and Kate Winslet. I stopped to write this down, and answer the question above, Why do we pick people that treat us poorly?
A million movies have characters that try to answer this question, and overall, I still seem to come up blank.
In ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ we see Sam with a guy named Craig, who fluffs his own ego with stories from college and talking down to Sam. Her stepbrother Patrick goes, “Don’t make yourself small.” Maybe Sam was doing what she thought Maybe when we like someone, we don’t know how to act. Although, I still love Mr. Andersons answer, “We accept the love we think we deserve.” (This is one of the best quotes ever, in my opinion.) So sometimes, we do things to impress people, or maybe act a certain way, but I think sometimes we have to meet the wrong people to meet the right ones.
If someone says, “You should change this about yourself, ” We know that’s not right. A person who loves you should never tell you to change, and while everyone does little things we don’t always love, we accept that person anyway. If someone says to change who you are, I really hope your response will be: SCREW YOU.
We should not accept less than we deserve, as love is limitless- that is- when we lose the judgements, and love each other without picking at the little things.
So let’s love people who love us, and accept them without limits. Love always,
