IRONIC HOW I’M ENDING 2015 WITH THE 15th POST OF THIS FEATURE.
OKAY LET’S MOVE ON TO BUSINESS
Soooo what I have for you guys this week is a quote from my latest review: GONE GIRL.
Because why not ???
Here we go:
(This is some deep shizz. You have been warned.)
If all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soulmate, because we don’t have genuine souls.
I told you.
Let me tell you a little story on how I made that thing right there. I was just like: Oh look a circle, another circle, hmmm let’s add some triangles… and then put the text there and hmmm what else,… hold on I can’t see the first circle wait which one now is the second circle where’s the triangles ooohh what happened why did it become red ooh that was cool good job ren! *pats myself on the head*
A lot. More than it should, actually.
Now, let’s drown in that artfully stringed words.
I actually firmly believe in destiny – and soulmates. But this quote turns my life around. Mainly because its first half is true for me too. And logically, if the first half is true, then the second half must be too.
In life, you have to pretend and act in order to get by.
And acting means using new shoes, new eyes, new words, new you, new soul.
You have to be able to adapt, to change. Because that’s the only way that you’ll last. You’re a fragile being and at one point, you bend, you break. And in order to move on, you transform. You morph using some old parts and then pick up some new ones.
But time never lets you live it down and keeps on breaking you.
And if you have lost all the old pieces, how can you say that you’re still the same one as you were before?
You are told to push through your limits. To never be satisfied until the point of breaking. To always strive for the better.
You are encouraged to lose yourself because only the lost can be found.
But how exactly are you going to be found if you’ve changed already?
In life, it’s actually very easy to change who you are depending on how your life is going and how you want it to go. It’s very easy to change your appearance, manners, identity. In that point, where you’ve been too many to count, where you’ve changed too much to identify, can you really say that deep deep deep deep deep down inside, you’re still the same soul that you were before all the transformations?
If souls are predestined, why were you different from who you are now? If souls are permanent, why are you able to change? If souls guide you to your soulmate, why are we all constantly changing?
We are not destined to be someone or something or even to be ourselves.
We are who we want to be.
And we fall for people who are who they want to be.
We are not fated to be with someone or something.
We create and dictate the lines of the map of the stars that rule our life.
