Why do you love someone?
Sometimes, we love someone because they’re simply dazzling.
Sometimes, we love someone because they help us to be better, because they love us, and they care about us.
How about someone, with all claws and flaws? Someone who is neither dazzling, nor helping?
Like this one:
I’m not anymore into this type of movies, yet what really struck me is the love from Dory’s parents to her. Disney’s movies in general are no longer into the prototype of prince-princess true love. True love in those movies are now popularly defined as the love of parents to their children or the love of siblings. Only those who are connected with blood ties can be bound by an unconditional love – the type of love which is, against all odds, extended to you, and to all your claws and flaws.
But first of all, you should accept yourself with all your claws and flaws. Even when they don’t give you a chance, why don’t you just give yourself one? Give yourself the chance to forget all the flaws and walk with your chin up and your light heart. Give yourself the chance to have a do-over. Give yourself the chance to live out of their expectation. Give yourself the chance to be flawed, completely flawed, yet you feel ok about it. Tell you what, for the rest of your life, you’re going to live with your flaws, but it’s not your fault. It’s another chance for you to learn how to be better.
