i love this cast more than words can say

listener (message): when i was a teenager i was a really gloomy child. it seemed like the whole world had turned it’s back on me. i believed i was the only one in the world. back then someone uttered these words to me: “everyone lives like that. you’re not the only one having a hard time. everyone lives in difficulty, and diligently, as much as you do.” at that time, rather than getting hurt by these words i thought: “that’s right so i’ve behaving like a child.” that’s why, from then on, i lived really diligently, only looking straight head. even though, because of my family’s circumstances, i got into college a bit late compared to other people, i pushed my own self with a rod of iron and i refused to face my own wounds since i trusted that, other than me, there are other people who are having a tough time and that everyone is living working hard as much as i do. i live diligently. then i thought: i could be even better, an even more of a good person. however, after i ran and ran diligently like that, now that i’m going to graduate i turned out to be someone who gets angry and annoyed at everything. i get angry at the words the other opponent would throw in without any meaning. i’d get angry with a: “what do you know?”. little by little i hated meeting other people and i’m just preparing to find a job while only looking straight ahead. however …, i suddenly got this thought: why am i comparing my own pain with other people’s suffering? why did i make other people’s misfortune the basis to my happiness? all of a sudden these words i heard years ago occurred to me again: “everyone lives like that. you’re not the only one having a hard time.” it seemed like i’d fall behind if i didn’t do anything, that i’d really become someone who’s oblivious to everything - casting a spell that everyone lives like that, that i’m not the only one having a tough time. i pressured and harassed myself. i couldn’t be caring to myself. i was only too strict to myself. i couldn’t love myself, the one that needed love the most. at last, i want to say this to myself: “you lived diligently. more than anybody else you lived fiercely. it’s alright. you can rest now.” today, my status message: “it’s alright even if you don’t do anything.

jonghyun: “everyone lives like that, you’re not the only one having a hard time.” these words …, i think it’s the most wrong way of consolation in the world. the comparing with the other opponent, with different people. you know how there are these words? “live with the courage to die”; well …, these words? i think it’s the worst way of consolation. comfort …, to someone who’s having a hard time, someone who’s gloomy / depressed, to an exhausted person, to say: “when you get these thoughts, think of …, when you get those thoughts, courageously, do something different …, ya, right now, since you’re having a hard time like that: you’re exhausted, tired and having negative thoughts. i think it’d be good to quickly put that energy on the move and quickly take care of the work you need to get done.” to be honest, that person was aware of this too. they already know it’ll be solved by quickly moving on. they really immensely wish for it to be that way. however, it’s not working that way. there’s another thing other than the body’s wounds that you can see with your own eyes: it’s the heart’s wounds and, because of that, when comforting someone, i think one should think of how there’s certainly another existence, something that my eyes can’t see. of course, me too, while talking about this, since there are certainly words i gave to someone and wounds i’ve received from someone, i wanted to complain and talk a bit about this to our dear listeners. when comforting someone, rather than consoling them by comparing, whether comparing them to yourself or another person’s situation, i think it’d be nice to just have a talk about that person, them solely.

[LYRICS] IU 아이유 - 이런 엔딩 Ending Scene

Arranged by Lee Jong Hoon / Composed by Sam Kim / Lyrics by IU

Hi, long time no see.
A voice with no question marks, it’s so you
As if it’s a rule cast in stone,
your seat by the cold entrance is always the same.

Make sure to eat well, because this too shall pass.
You’ll be able to sleep well like you did before.
I sincerely wish from the bottom of my heart.
You have the right to be happier.

Don’t say those words, please.
You know that saying those things makes it hurt even more.
You said you would love me, what use is that?
You wouldn’t know what kind of heart I gave you.

For the times you were lonely,
I hope you can find someone
who can love you more than the love you’re giving me
I’m sorry that person isn’t me.
Giving isn’t easy.

Don’t say those words, please.
You know that saying those things makes it hurt even more.
You said you would love me, what use is that?
You’ll never know what kind of heart I gave you.

Tell me honestly, please.
You know I’ll believe anything you say
Would I, like you said,
receive love someday from someone who is like me?

Christian Song list!

More to be added soon :)

Love, hecallsmelovely

things you notice during the 1000th rewatch of The Schuyler Sisters Tony performance

okay so at the beginning of the song Lin is in the background with Groff and Rory and the other guys, literally jumping around (in this screenshot: airborne Lin)

at the beginning of Pippa’s line the guys come forward, and after the second “Look around”, and as the credits begin to roll, Renée and Jonathan are totally jamming in the foreground, while Lin goes to Pippa and kisses her cheek

and then Lin starts to head toward the steps, but before that he finds Leslie

and they do a hip bump

I met ryan again today and got him to do a video message for our emmerdale losers™ group chat and he was the cutest person ever instantly knowing we were here for robron, telling us to be excited for october and joking with us saying he’ll make a trailer because we’re not getting one cryyyy (but there will be promo) MY BEAUTIFUL SMILEY AWKWARD BALL OF SUNSHINE I LOVE HIM MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY

anonymous asked:

"That’s all I’m going to say on the subject." So, essentially, you have nothing? If you truly believe that your hypothetical motivations for Felicity equals 'honesty' - then you're a bit naive. I asked for one instance of Felicity being openly/verbally honest about her feelings for Oliver, to absolutely any character on the show, yet you couldn't do that. Instead, all we have is your interpretation of her actions. Hopefully you can see where I'm coming from.

LOL…this is the problem with getting behind on your asks. What are we talking about?

Okay, found the post. Oh…trust me Anon. I never have nothing to say. I’ve got plenty more to say and you shall hear it my friend. :) Just remember…you asked.

You are right Anon. Felicity has never said “I love you” to Oliver, nor has she said she’s in love with Oliver to anyone. I wasn’t disagreeing with you on that point. My point was…that doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter that she hasn’t said the words. She’s done more than say I love you…she’s lived I love you…every day…for Oliver.

You say those examples are just my interpretations. Sure, your damn straight they are. They are also right. How do I know that? Because the writers have said REPEATEDLY that Felicity is in love with Oliver. So has almost every single cast member on the show. How can they say that Felicity is in love with Oliver if she’s never spoken the words? By your standards, it doesn’t count unless words are spoken- it’s not love unless you say it. I really couldn’t disagree with a sentiment more- whether we’re talking about a TV show or life. The writers have used those actions to SHOW us Felicity’s love. It’s how they are telling the love story - through actions. I’m not naive. I’m watching the show correctly.

There’s a reason Felicity hasn’t said the words. What you are asking for, a blanket verbal statement from Felicity, isn’t something OLIVER was ready to hear. Maybe she would have told him in no uncertain terms that she’s in love with him, but what did Oliver tell her in 2x06?

“Because of the life I lead, I just think it’s better to not be with anyone I could really care about.”

Talk about subtlety. Oliver’s insinuation was as about as subtle as dropping a 300 lb anvil. His point was clear. He acknowledged he had feelings for Felicity but he was NEVER going to act on those feelings. Why? His love for Felicity endangers her. Oliver IS the danger and she’s too important to him. He won’t risk her. He knows he could love her, he just won’t allow himself to.

So you are expecting what? For Felicity to tell Oliver she’s in love with him when he’s just told her he’ll NEVER pursue a romantic relationship with her? So Felicity has to be a glutton for punishment? Get rejected twice? 

The reality is Oliver wasn’t ready to be with Felicity. He wasn’t capable of loving her the way she needs. So what did Felicity do? Did she make it about her? No. She loved Oliver the way he needed, but not necessarily the way she wanted. It’s SELFLESS LOVE. It wasn’t about Felicity. It was about Oliver and what he needed from her. Oliver didn’t need the words, he wasn’t ready for the words. He needed Felicity’s actions. He needed her actively loving him in all those examples I gave you. The actions the WRITERS gave you. Those actions, those acts of love, gave Oliver the strength to become the hero he’s meant to be. It was only when he became the hero Felicity believed he always was, that Oliver was finally ready to say the words

All of those examples I gave you…the ones that you call my interpretations? Those ARE actions of a person loving. What’s that old saying? Actions speak louder than words. It’s true. HOW you love someone is more important than what you say. Are the words important? Of course, but you need the actions behind them. When you can’t say the words, like Felicity couldn’t, actions are all you have. And quite frankly HOW you show your love is one of the best ways, if not THE BEST WAY, to say you love someone. Loving through action is one of the most honest things a person can do.

My husband can tell me he loves me all day long. But if he doesn’t show me? If he doesn’t live that love everyday, the words are empty. Everyday he gets up and he works ass off for this family. He provides for me & our daughter, ensures that I have the luxury of staying home to raise her. After a long week at work he still helps our daughter with her homework, plays with her, mows the lawn, and vacuums the floor for me (because he knows I hate to do it).  Even when I know all he wants to do is watch Big Bang Theory, he watches The Vampire Diaries with me first, just so we can spend time together. Every Sunday before we go up to Communion, he steps aside and lets me walk up the aisle first. He remembers how much milk I like in my tea. He knows I get cold at night, so he snuggles me until I warm up, even if it’s 4 am and I’ve spent all night blogging and he has to get up for work the next morning. He doesn’t go back to sleep until I’m warm & asleep myself.

And every time I’ve been in the hospital, sick, in unimaginable pain but forced to walk up and down the hospital hallways because the doctors always make me walk after every surgery (they say it’s help me get stronger, but I think they’re just sadists) it’s his strong arms around me, encouraging me and holding me up. It’s his arms that carry me to bed, when I’m just too weak to walk on my own. When I told him I didn’t think I could have children, he didn’t say a word. He just kissed me, smiled and let me pick the movie that night. Not only did he stay with me, he asked me to marry him one day. When I did get pregnant and my life was threatened but I refused to terminate the pregnancy, he stood by my side, sometimes counting the seconds for me until I could take more pain medication. He would stay up entire nights, just watching me breathe because the nurses told him the amount of pain medication they gave give me could stop my breathing. He spent day after day rubbing my back, for hours on end, because it was the only thing that helped. Since I was stuck in a hospital bed, he bought me S2 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer because he knew it was my favorite season. He painted the entire nursery green, but when the doctors told us that I if I survived this pregnancy, I could never have more children, he repainted the whole room pink for me. And when our daughter was born at 1 lb 12 oz, I was one of the only women in the NICU with a husband by her side. He didn’t run. He didn’t leave me. He stood by me every step of the way. Did he say he loved me everyday? No. Most of the time I think he was too exhausted to even talk. I was also higher than a kite, so I don’t think I would have understood the words even if he did. Did I know he loved me? Yes. There was never a time in our lives where we talked less and there was never a time in my life where I felt more loved.

Actions. Actions are love. Actions are what matter. Not words. It is in our actions that we show who we truly are. You call this naive? Well my friend, I’ve faced death a few more times than I’m comfortable with and I can promise you it’s not naive. Love finds life in people’s actions. It’s in people’s actions that love is it’s most honest form. That’s not naivete, that’s hard earned wisdom from a life well lived. So maybe now you have a better understanding of where I am coming from.

Felicity doesn’t need to say the words. She’s lived her love for Oliver every day. It’s by her actions that he KNOWS she loves him, it’s by her actions that he feels her love. Her actions are more powerful than words. Her actions are what gives Oliver the strength to become the man she always knew he was, the man she deserves.

And now that he is that man and ready to love Felicity the way she needs, you’ll get your wish Anon. Felicity will tell Oliver that she loves him in 3x01. She will say the words. She will speak the truth. But make no mistake, it’s nothing that Oliver doesn’t already know.

 And now, that’s really all I have to say on the subject. 

We’re going to try to trend “Thanks For The 100” on January 20th at 3pm EST. If you can join in, please do! I want this trend to be big, so the the100writers and cast and everyone involved in making the show can see just how much we love and appreciate them and what they do.
