Tonight my flatmate and I went to see The Last Kiss… actually such a great film. It really looks at the darker side of relationships, I think it raises several pretty good points…
One point it raised was how even when you appear to have the ‘perfect life’, there can still be something missing… I guess I look at that from two perspectives: 1) If you’re not a Christian, your life can only be so good without God, you miss out on so much more, and 2) Even in a wonderful, loving relationship, guys (especially guys, including Christian ones) are prone to question what else is out there, or struggle with lust etc.
Another point I thought was addressed very well was how, despite our protestations that we want truth and honesty in our relationships, more often than not, we don’t really. We would rather continue to believe what we want.
“The world is moving so fast now that we start freaking long before our parents did because we don’t ever stop to breathe anymore.”
