My first post in 2015, I thought I had to write something spectacular, something different to show that I evolved at least a little since the last months of 2014, but truth is, I am still the same.
the good thing that the end of the year has brought was a little dulling of the pain I felt since April 2014, a little sunshine in corners of my mind that had been covered in the darkness of events I had no control over.
I will make 2015 a brighter year, it will fill my mind with so much light that the pain will have no other choice but to leave my soul and let me rise above.
That is a promise I make for the upcoming year.
A few changes have happened since December. I have not technically broken my promise to write more in my blog since I have moved into a new place and have only been connected to the internet.
I hope to keep writing at least once a week now that I am on a stable path.
Well to all the people who follow me, Thank you and Happy Belated New Year!
Lilo & Stitch has been my favorite Disney movie ever since I watched it back in 2002.
This movie has thought me a lot, and by that I mean ‘family values’
Stitch was created for only one reason, and that is to destroy, his purpose was chaos, and honestly that’s what babies are like in my eyes, they don’t know any better, everything they touch, they break, spill and trample over.
He is sentenced to imprisonment, but manages to escape and lands himself on earth.
He is then adopted as a dog by Nani & Lilo, two sisters who don’t yet know how to get along with their parents out of the picture, I mean Nani the eldest has just suddenly been placed in the role of ‘adult’ ‘mother’ ‘carer’ to her younger sister who is such a free spirit.
Nani doesn’t know how to deal with her responsibilities but she is trying to hard for her sister, she loves her more than anything, and sure the two fight, and have different opinions, but, so do all sisters.
Lilo, all she wants is someone to love her like her parents did, a friend who wouldn’t leave her, she wants to be herself and she doesn’t want things to change in her life, so when she adopts stitch she finds that friend.
Through out the movie, we watch the struggle stitch faces to be better, he watches the relationship between Lilo & her sister and can’t help but wish for someone like that.
When he fails, and the sisters lose hope in him, he tries his best because he has fallen so deeply in love with this family that it makes all that chaos within him seem like nothing, he wants to save his best friend and does so.
He then willingly gives himself up so that his ‘family’ can be safe and together, he loves them and honestly, this makes me realized something.
No Family in this world is perfect, we fight, and hurt each others feelings even when we don’t mean to. We disappoint the ones we love the most and then, we try to atone for what we have done. Family has to love you for who you are, with your flaws and past.
The people who don’t accept you, even if they are blood related shouldn’t be considered your ‘true family’ because you don’t have to be ‘blood related’ to someone to love them unconditionally.
I’m Selfish, sometimes cruel. I don’t do what I’m told, I’ve got a loud spirit and I want my voice to be heard, and that makes it really hard for me to communicate with most family members, they don’t understand me, want to change me, and most of all they make me sad, but I do love them, they will always have a piece of my heart, but they will not be considered my ‘true family’ because that spot in my heart is reserved for someone else.
