Friends, I am afraid there hasn't been a single day since I first watched this that I haven't thought about this movie. I am also afraid it has changed my life drastically.
I've been doing so much more with me in mind. I've made new friends. I've started going out; with or without others. I've been more patient with myself. I've stopped doubting (mostly, lol) every decision I make. I've started writing again. I finally booked a doctor's appointment (just an overdue annual, nothing to worry about) -a task I couldn't even imagine doing a month ago. I'm getting haircuts regularly. I shave regularly. And more, but those are for just me to know.
Things are going well. I know there will be bad days at some point. Probably soon, even. But for the first time, in a very long time, I don't really care.
This movie came at the perfect time in my life. I'm so happy the Academy recognized it, not once, but TWICE!
