♥ the uncensored truths of your manic pixie midnightmare girl ♥

Here, here. I've been spending the last few years realizing that life isn't like it is portrayed in tne movies. This post couldn't be more appropriate for that sentiment.
I always feel empty after movies. I've been on an emotional roller coaster, especially if there is love involved. But when you step out of the theater, into the sunlight, reality takes hold. Life is NOT like that. Your examples are perfect.
Though, I do say, when you gel and when you are happy with someone some of those false expectations disappear. That super-imposed-inhuman-thoughtfulness that occurs in the movies is too much to want, but you are NOT settling if you find someone who even does something near that to sweep you off your feet.
But agreed. The past has made you what you are today, but not what you can become tomorrow. Some people will never outlive that gnawing history. I, for one, gladly file it away as experience, for better and for worse.
