Last night I watched the Disney/Pixar movie UP and it killed me. I cried so much. ughhh. *spoiler* ....although, I hope all of you have seen it!!
So, all I could think of is how horrible it is to lose someone you love. And it's tough to imagine that pain without actually experiencing it.
It's hard to write things without experiencing them. What's love like? It's abstract until you know the feelings, then you use some sort of metaphor to explain the feelings. While it's abstract, I use movies like UP to figure out how things feel. Like loss, since, fortunately I have no current experience with...and like all of us, hope I don't for a long while.
What was so heartbreaking, however, is all I could imagine is 'what if something happens to my daddy?' how would I feel? Horrible, awful, numb. My daddy is my rock. He encourages me in every way possible, even if he doesn't quite understand what I'm doing.
I've always known I would need someone just like him to keep me going if anything happens to him. Fortunately, I realized last night, my boyfriend is just like him. Weird, isn't it?
Anyways, here's a picture of my Doug. The dog in the movie is named Doug and before I watched UP, I got this dog from my sis when I was having a bad day. Isn't he adorable?!
I hope all of you have someone to make you happy whether your dad, husband, bf, or a wonderful stuffed pet. Or all of them! :)
