“Charlotte, who is nine, sometimes runs in and out and gets bored. I remember a Flute here in Zurich some years ago. At the end of the Pamina aria, I heard a loud slamming door, which is really not nice, since the music is so beautiful at that point. Turns out it was my daughter, coming to tell me she was so angry at me for not saying anything. ‘How could you, when she sang so beautifully?’ She hated me for that! But Flavio [at age four] is completely focused. When we were doing Traviata in Paris, he sat alone for hours right next to the pit, next to Sylvain Cambreling, who conducted. He said, ‘What did you do to that boy? He sat there the whole time with no noise!’” - Jonas Kaufmann
So today I was in the middle of human relationships class studying in pairs and the cutest thing happened...
What would you guys do if a girl you like told you she wanted a guy who was more mature than you.
I would try to be more responsible and make her see I'm mature enough for her.
I'd start taking things more seriously, so she notices me as someone she could date.
My Study Partner:
I think you're all wrong.
What do you mean by that?
Well, I don't think neither of them are reacting to the situation like they should. At least that is not what I would do. I want someone who can accept and love every piece of me, every real piece of me. I want a girl who loves me for who I am, not for someone I've become only for her. I'm none to judge, and I know I'm not the best that's out there. I know that there are millions of guys who almost every girl would chose over me. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I personally think that I am, that everyone is, important enough to be themselves without any exceptions. I think everyone should love themselves enough to know this, and if there's ever a girl that tries to change me, it doesn't matter how much I like her, if she wants someone more serious or more mature, then I'd be happy if she found someone like that. Because I'm not what she wants and even though that's a shame, it's the truth, and I don't want to be a liar. So if there's ever someone that thinks your not enough for them, they're wrong, you are just different, and if that's who you truly are, then you should always love that person and never let them die because if you do the world would be missing you, and that should never happen.
The whole class:
