“We accept the love we think we deserve.”
I recently watched the film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It’s a beautiful movie that is incredibly well acted and I wholeheartedly recommend it. A number of themes emerge throughout the movie, but this is essentially a story about growing up. It’s about the resiliency of the human spirit. It’s about love for others and yourself. It’s about the importance of friends. And it’s about the need to not simply observe life, but to live it.
