hadnt realized how much i forgot about that movie.
halfway through i was getting mad at Sad for fucking everything up and i was seriously wondering why Sadness is even necessary in life, let alone that small control center in the brain.
but of the many things i learned at college, when writing stories there’s a three step process:
introduce lovable characters,
then fuck them over royally
then watch them return to glory
so how can you have that arc if you don’t have sadness and anger and disgust right in the middle of it.
for every peak you need a valley
told all this stuff to my shrink today and she seemed impressed at how much i got out of the film
so how will you use this in your life, she asked me?
i said if i see a pretty girl who looks sad in a picture, i wont try to stand on my head to make her smile, i’ll just think to myself
there’s some good times heading that chick’s way.
