Her

Her ★★★★★

I keep waiting to not care about her.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah, you know, sometimes I look at people and I make myself try to feel them as more than just a random person walking by. I imagine like how deeply they've fallen in love or how much heartbreak they've all been through.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There was something sexy about that woman...because I was lonely...maybe just because I was lonely...Sometimes I think that I've felt everything I'm ever going to feel and from here on out I'm not going to feel anything new, just lesser versions of what I've already felt.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
...but you know that's also the hard part - growing without growing apart or changing without it scaring the other person.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No...no, it's...I think anybody who falls in love is a freak. It's a crazy thing to do. It's kinda like a form of socially acceptable insanity.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But, you know what? I can overthink everything and find like a million ways to doubt myself and since Charles left I've been really thinking about that part of myself and I've just come to realize that we're only here briefly. And while I'm here I want to allow myself joy...so fuck it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But the heart's not like a box that gets filled up. It expands in size the more you love. I'm different from you. It doesn't make you love you any less. It actually makes me love you more...I'm your's and I'm not your's.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's like I'm writing a book. And it's a book I deeply love. But I'm writing it really slowly now so the words are really far apart and the spaces in between are almost infinite. I can still feel you and the words of our story. But it's in this endless space between the words that I'm finding myself now...I love you so much, but this is where I am now and this is who I am now...as much as I want to, I can't live in your book now.

Dear Catherine,

I've been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I'm sorry for that. I'll always love you 'cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I'm grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I'm sending you love. You're my friend to the end.

Love,
Theodore

Best screenplay of all time is Casablanca my ass.



















But, also Casablanca's screenplay is undeniably one of the GOATs and I love it dearly.
