Normal People

Normal People ★★★★½

She closes her eyes. He probably won’t come back, she thinks. Or he will, differently. What they have now they can never have back again. But for her the pain of loneliness will be nothing to the pain that she used to feel, of being unworthy. He brought her goodness like a gift and now it belongs to her. Meanwhile his life opens out before him in all directions at once. They’ve done a lot of good for each other. People can really change one another.

I will go.
And I will stay. And we'll be ok.

I can't remember the last time I was so devastated. Is it the on going quarantine and lack of human touch? The way their journeys seems so relatable to a socially awkward guy? Maybe I'm just a helpless romantic who's in love with love itself and the pain that comes with it. I'm a wreck and I love it. Thank you so much for this ride; the feelings, the honesty, the pain, the music, the struggle, the realistic approach of what means to start living. It was the most beautiful thing I never want to see again.
