Watching it, I could see at least a million weepy teens rewatching it 30 times and crying, thinking they can die of heart break (Not brilliant but we have all been there).
Which is why though I find it well composed, it somehow didn't really pull any chords with Me who has been there, done that, went back, did it again, again, again, again...
Till this part that is.
" Our lives will continue on in different directions toward the inevitable end, becoming strangers again. And everything we shared will just become fragmented memories, from so long ago I'll question if it really happened. And all that will be left is this, a box of random stuff from a faded period of time when this stranger, was the most important person in my life."
I can't count on my fingers the 'most important' people who used to be in my life that would take my longer than I'd like to admit to name. I've loved some of the things they did and hated others, but ultimately you can't love or hate someone you don't know anymore. They just are and what you had just was.
As jaded and depressing as it sounds, the upside is that there are plenty more strangers on the sidewalk,
almost as many as there are fishes in the sea.
And all you have to do is take a walk or go for a swim :)
