I know your fears and you know mine
We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine
And I love you, I swear that’s true
I cannot live without you

I’m a very troubling thing - I’m the good and the bad. I make your head spin and your fists clench, but I can make your nose crinkle and breathe at ease. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a headache and sometimes you don’t understand why you do the things that you do; but I can tell you that it’s all because of me. I can make your eyes flood with tears and your chest feel empty while your lungs slowly start to collapse because it finally hit you that I’m all too much. I can and I will pull you in all different directions. Because I don’t make sense, and I never will. But, you cannot live without me; I give you life, I give you hope, I am your home. Through all those tears, and all those scars, all that emptiness - I am everything you’ve ever wanted. I am the one thing you will spend your whole life looking for. Because I can make your heart stop, dead in its tracks, and bring it back to life in one split second.

I am love.

—  c.f. // “you cannot live without me”

You cannot be a Christian without living like a Christian,” he said. “You cannot be a Christian without practicing the Beatitudes. You cannot be a Christian without doing what Jesus teaches us in Matthew 25.” This is a reference to Christ’s injunction to help the needy by such works of mercy as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and welcoming the stranger.

“It’s hypocrisy to call yourself a Christian and chase away a refugee or someone seeking help, someone who is hungry or thirsty, toss out someone who is in need of my help,” he said. “If I say I am Christian, but do these things, I’m a hypocrite.

—  Pope Francis

Favourite Acting Scenes – Isak’s dream-like week comes to a nightmarish end (5.10 part 5)

My Favourite Colour is Maroon, the photoset. 

Emotions are a peculiar thing: sometimes you cannot live without them, for you want to feel the joy and happiness that you encounter throughout your days. Those moments, life without emotions seems boring and you need them to enjoy it. Other times, you don’t want to feel them at all. When life is just not going your way and everything seems stacked up against you. The anger and sadness you feel, that you’d rather not feel anything at all than those emotions.

But sometimes, at first, you don’t know what to feel at all, or have difficulties containing those feelings and emotions. As is the case with this scene: the feelings and emotions involved with.. a break-up? Every person deals with this in different ways, but here is Isak, a boy who has been known to suppress and hide his true feelings in emotionally stressful situations. Often, a first introduction in acting is being attuned to how emotions take form in your body. Happiness means smile, sadness means frown. But what if the intent of the scene is that you’re feeling emotions but cannot show or deal with them? This is acting out a character who is unable to deal with the emotions that come his way when confronted with a confusing and heartbreaking situation.

It starts at the pre-party. While his friends are talking about whatever, Isak clearly is in conflict. His shoulders are tense, he takes very deep but shallow breaths and is continuously staring at the same point. A nice touch as well is the fact that he’s barely drinking his beer, and when he does he really needs to swallow it down. Maybe his head is completely filled with confusion over what happened with Even, or it’s completely empty, not knowing what to think. The boy is tense all over. What I find most interesting is that these scenes emphasize that feeling that even though you’re with people around you, you can still feel alone because you’re unable to tell them what’s going on. The only connection he makes in the conversation is when Emma is mentioned, but you see that he has difficulties coming up with reasons why he can’t get them in. He even sounds vulnerable here; he really doesn’t want to go.

But then, he has to. And he keeps his distance from his friends. Pulling into himself, walking behind them. Just get them into the party. Then I can leave.

It’s only when he sees Even that Isak suddenly feels anything again: the urgent need to talk to him, even though I don’t think Isak knew what he wanted to say. The music is a nice touch here; it emphasizes that heart pounding and anxious feeling you get when you see your crush after receiving such a weird final text message. I need to find him. Now. When Emma shows up, the music fizzles out. Oh fuck.

Isak tries to pull up his smooth-talking womanizer persona, but you see that he doesn’t feel it: his wide eyes show that he’s scared. And then Emma drops a bomb. His face becomes ashen, his heart sinks right into his stomach. He’s staring again, almost teary-eyed. She knows.

Barely before he even gets to think of the consequences of that revelation, he pulls up his eyes and sees Even and Sonja. The heart in his stomach turns into lead.

I need to get out.

He’s not looking at anyone when he tells them they’re leaving, but then Mahdi mentions for the second time that night his family. Already a sore spot, Isak’s emotions spurt out in anger here and he pushes Mahdi: this is totally different from who Isak is that I think it terrifies even him how he’s reacting. I love Tarjei’s reaction here; wide-eyed, staring, his body language almost screaming that he needs to get away from here.

It’s at the moment when he’s finally alone that Isak can’t contain his emotions anymore; his adrenaline and anger result in aggression, but when he’s done feeling angry, it’s only feeling the heartbreak that remains. I think, knowing Isak’s tendency to think the worst of himself, that he’s only blaming himself here.

I should’ve known.           It’s my fault.                     I’m so stupid.

And because he’s finally letting himself feel his emotions and feelings that have been building up for a few days (or even weeks), it hits him so hard that he does something that he only did when his father left his mother: he stays inside for a week, completely isolates himself, not even telling Jonas this time. Trying not to feel anything, but instead feeling everything.

It’s so perfectly acted, that it feels like a vicarious experience, for us, the audience.

Put Me first.  Put My friendship above all else.  You cannot live without My friendship.  It is not good that you should be alone.  Seek My Face at all times and in all things.  Seek My open Heart present in the Sacrament of My Love.  I have called you to be My friend.  I have revealed Myself to you as the Friend whom you have always desired, the Friend who will never mislead you, never disappoint you, never abandon you.  Open your heart to My friendship.  Seek My Face.  Converse with Me.  Listen to Me.  Remain in My presence.  Know that at every moment My eyes rest upon you.  My Heart is, at every moment, ready to welcome you.
—  Jesus, as recorded by an anonymous monk in In Sinu Jesu, pg. 26

Good, Christ-centered community and loyal friendship is not always easy to find. Finding people who have similar ambitions. passions and convictions is something many people desire. However, even when you find it, there will always be differences and challenges that arise in these relations. Why? Because we are all human, and no human relationship is perfect. However, we cannot live our lives without other people. Whether you go to school or work with hundreds of people who are very different from you, or you live in a close-knit smalltown where everyone knows everyone, or you attend a big church where you know a few people, but haven’t connected with too many people, you will likely have to see and interact with people at someone point and at some point, you will be overwhelmed with a relationship in your life. Maybe it’s:

1. A dating a relationship that has several challenges
2. Dynamics in your friend groups are starting to change and you’re in the middle
3. Something you’ve noticed in your local community or church but because everyone is so close, you have no idea how to talk about it
4. The people you work with/go to school with are very different than you and you struggle relating them to them, yet, you have to see them everyday
5. A family relationship where you know that there’s a lot to be dealt with it, but every time it’s discusses, it seems to not get anywhere.

No matter what those dynamics in your life are, remember this truth:

I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
- Psalm 16:8 (NLT)

God is beside you when you’re struggling to find good community. He’s there when you’re trying to be a positive example for your friends. He’s there when you’re helping a family member in a difficult situation. He’s there when you’re sharing your passions and dreams with people and you’re not sure how they’ll respond. God is always there, so seek Him about every aspect of every relationship in your life, every single day.
