Your whole life, the world is going to try and tell you what love is.
It’s everywhere.
It’s in the bedtime stories you heard, as a child.
It’s in the tv shows you watched, as a teenager.
It’s in the movies you see and the books you read.
And all of a sudden, you have this expectation of what love is.
You have this expectation of how love is supposed to happen.
But the truth is that those expectations, are all wrong.
Love is not a universal feeling.
Although, love may be something that everybody feels,
love is felt in different ways.
Love is experienced individually.
And I wish that’s how we raised our children.
I wish we taught them that love isn’t always what you expect it to be.
But that’s ok because that’s what is so great about love.
The way you love, is yours.
It is so magically and delicately, your very own.
Which is why sometimes, some people, don’t understand it.
And sometimes, some people, even disagree with it.
But that’s ok, because it is not theirs to understand.
Imagine what the world be like, if we raised our children
without the expectations that society has laid out for us.

^ Do you see this guy?

This man’s name is Sean Mcloughlin. He’s best known by jacksepticeye on YouTube, he is loved by many. He is appreciated by me, and I respect him.

He is a human like us, and he has emotions like us. He is true and genuine, a good content creator as a lot of us would say..This man is inspiring just as much as he is random or funny.

He is unique, his hair is green and he likes memes. He’s loud and outgoing, even if sometimes the bad days come towards him and I think that’s amazing. He manages to make people happy but he cannot please everyone;

Yet through the hate he points out the mistakes that are made by the people who decide to say hurtful things about him.

He’s a good guy, he treats everyone the same, he loves us equally. He has enough love for the world!

This guy has saved people, just by his personality and his videos that he uploads every day.

This guy is an ordinary dude who makes videos for our entertainment but to some of us he’s a friend who we don’t know personally, a brother who isn’t even close to blood related.

You see, Sean Mcloughlin is a spectacular person. He is himself, he is funny, loud, outgoing, loving, giving, and everything in between. A lot of people do YouTube for the sake of money, or fame..but this guy right here..he’s real.

And I appreciate him and respect him.

To some people, the act of falling in love is very much like falling into pieces. For when they love, they love all of you. They do not abandon any parts of you, they take you for who you are entirely. And when the night comes to tuck the sun into the moon, they tuck your brokenness into their bones even if they wake up in pieces in the morning. Those people, they are build to break each time they fall in love.
—  Lukas W. // Loving in pieces

In a deep relationship, there’s no longer a boundary between you and the other person. You are her and she is you. Your suffering is her suffering. Your understanding of your own suffering helps your loved one to suffer less. Suffering and happiness are no longer individual matters. What happens to your loved one happens to you. What happens to you happens to your loved one.

[…]

In true love, there’s no more separation or discrimination. His happiness is your happiness. Your suffering is his suffering. You can no longer say, “That’s your problem.”

Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton deliver remarkably nuanced performances in Loving, a late ‘50s/early ‘60s-set true life story of a mixed race couple who’s illegal marriage became a landmark case in the United States supreme court. Having tried his hand at the coming-of-age drama (Mud) and both small and large-scale science fiction (Take Shelter and Midnight Special, respectively), the increasingly prolific Jeff Nichols branches out once more here to the awards season period drama. This heartwarming and wonderfully refined film might not do a whole lot of things we haven’t seen before in the civil rights era picture, but it does the familiar stuff with enormous care and control.

As they say about these sorts of things: you just couldn’t write it. In June 1958 at the age of 18, Mildred Delores Jeter – of African American and Native American descent – became pregnant with the child of Richard Loving, a 24-year-old white man. Nichols picks up their story from here. Wishing to legitimize their child, the young lovers left their home state of Virginia – where mixed race marriage was illegal – and traveled to Washington D.C. to elope.
