On this beyond muggy, lazy, and oppressive for the 2nd day of September, I ventured to the movies. I love going to artsy/indies/foreign flicks. I have not kept up with the various movies as of late because summer is not usually my season for my above mentioned likes. I saw Celeste and Jesse Forever listed. I have not heard about the film nor have I seen any promos. I read the synopsis and watched the trailer. Looked decent enough to me, hey, it wasn't a giant summertime shoot'em up movies.
I sat there with four other people. As I watched the movie I realized I was Celeste. The uber Type A, anal, always right, cavalier, just plain know it all. Her marriage failed because of these facts and she lost her husband/best friend. Through the movie she realized how and where she went wrong. I won't give away the ending.
The point is, I learned a lesson from the movie. Being always right and pessimistic is like living in a prison. I, too, could lose my relationship if I continue this path. I haven't been pleasant to my fiance and I went a step too far last night but quickly realized I didn't mean what I said and apologized.
I have to work harder. I know I am not perfect. This is all new to me.
I wonder if something like divorced occurred in our relationship if he'd ever remarry and if he did, who would the woman be? I thought about that during the movie. I know it is hard to see someone move on without you.
Here is a trailer to the movie. I recommend it!
