Love actually is everywhere. It is the message of a nice 2003 film.
I’m thinking a lot of this statement these days. It might seem simple and even a bit superficial, but sometimes life makes you think about it and shows you how complicated relationships can be.
I can actually feel love all around me! I have a wonderful family, both at home and here, I have a lovely boyfriend that is far away now but that writes me everyday and keeps good company to me when I am bored in my office, I have very important friends and lots of relations with which I have fun and that I really appreciate and miss in a way or another.
These days I have been thinking a lot about a friend that I haven’t seen in a long time. I saw this film with him, in a period in which we used to date, even if it was a quite complicated relationship, and at that time I didn’t really know what I wanted (I only understood it when I met my present boyfriend). I was worried about this… I mean, I didn’t understand why I was thinking about him so much. I was afraid that being far from my boyfriend I would start having stupid doubts about a relationship that has lasted almost 4 years.
Then I realised that it wasn’t that at all.
It is just that in this period I am making a balance of everything and I start missing people that have been truly important to me and I want to rebuilt the bridges that used to connect us. In fact in a certain sense I still “love” him, but in a totally different way: he is someone who knows me deeply, with whom I can really laugh and on whom I can always count. But it has nothing to do with what I feel about my boyfriend!
Love is often described as a unique feeling, that you are allowed to feel only towards a person, but this is an advertisement oriented kind of image! Love is so complex and unpredictable… and it is just so beautiful to know that in a world that is often rude and hostile I can find love everywhere!
