“The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”—Joseph Gordon-Levitt (via kialavanyaa)
Please don’t go?
You showed me that there’s nothing wrong with being yourself.
When I’m with you, I’m at ease.
Please. Don’t go?
You showed me hope, the kind that no one has given me before.
You give me that hope.
Please? Don’t go.
You taught me that life is really filled with pleasant things.
Having you is one of them.
Please don’t go.
You showed me that there are reasons to be happy amidst all challenges.
You’re one of them.
Please, don’t go.
You showed me that everything starts with me and that all I needed was a push.
You’re my push.
You taught me that it’s okay to fall down no matter how hard, as long as you learn to pick yourself back up.
You picked me up when I was down.
You listened to me when no one else would.
You accompanied me when the world abandoned me.
You made me smile when I was gloomy.
You helped me rebuild myself when I fell apart.
You gave me direction when I had lost my way.
You were there when I had no one.
You gave me so much, I don’t know how to return it all.
I lost sight of everything. I know I shouldn’t have. I’m sorry.
I’ll be better. I’ll be stronger. This time, I’ll fight harder.
“Stop running! I know. Even if you find the kids you might not be able to help them. Maybe something will happen that can never unhappen, that scares you, doesn’t it? But you need to think about it now, really take it in. Look at you, you think you’ve got it so damn hard. Well you hate being alone so let people in. Sure you might not answer the phone, but I don’t see you throw it away either! ”—Tifa Lockhart to Cloud
