I’m very fond of films — to me, they are all true art, despite the genre of a movie. I watch thrillers, romantic comedies, historic films narrating about hard times which eventually changes history, whatever.

But there is one keynote, which anyhow penetrates all these movies: I’m talking about:


Does media distort the picture of love and give the feeling of loneliness?

Love.

Human is created in such a way that love is not only material with which he or she can make a whole person but also a mover for deeds, aims, and desires throughout all their life.

And every time I watch a movie I see different scenes but one and the same key moment: there are always two main characters, negotiation of obstacles, and coming together or breaking up.

Media show us that love is he and she, connected by something unique, and they have to undergo hardship before the outcome.

But as years go by, you realize that things are different.

Friendship is probably the most common form of love. But we forgot about it.

You can begin to love already today.

You can love whatever and whoever

You don’t have to cut yourself off from something.

You don’t have to distribute: this one is my partner, that one is my friend, and this is the member of my family. When you love, you don’t focus on such things.

You don’t have to promise anything. Love doesn’t oblige.

A parting with the object of your love is merely a parting. The fact that you love this person remains and is up to you, as before this moment.

When you do love, you feel healthier.

Love and sexual desire are absolutely different things. But sometimes they go together.

Love and fear are mutually exclusive notions. You don’t need to worry, wondering “to love or not to love”. If you worry, it’s not love you worry about.

But what do media show?

I’m not angry with media, but let’s face it — it deprived us of a lot of things. We see pictures about overcoming all sorts of hardship, but we never see what happens next, neither in fairytales nor in TV shows nor in movies. We don’t see what we fight for — the tide of life.

A good many people live “from fight to fight”, and during breaks, they suffer from loneliness, anxiety, and other moods. It’s not that we don’t live between our personal fights — we don’t even rest between them.

We are sure that there is nothing more in life, we do think it consists of only achieving goals. But what about loving and rejoicing in life’s pleasures?
