Should it not be troubling and a concern that our classic, exemplary, precedents for true romantic love are fictional stories at best, and merely played by actors at worst?
Nothing against fictional stories,
I understand their place and benefit.
But are there any notable instances of real true romantic love?
Or are well all just trying to live up to an unrealistic, and perhaps even irrelevant paradigm?
I have been losing my ability to communicate lately.
As long as this semester really.
Carley and I got in a debate the other night
and I could not do it.
I kept using
and but _______
No rational arguement.
Even though I was right
It has been in much more than debates though.
In all conversation.
I am lacking the words to meaningfully communicate as I wish to.
This is extremely unsatisfactory.
Our culture is obsessed with actors who play parts of true love on the screen
and whose own lives are infamous for unsuccessful marriages.
Probably an obvious contradiction,
but maybe something worth considering.
Is watching films and TV shows
obsessed or not with its real-life conterparts
only perpetuating the apparent lack of worthwhile romantic loving abilities of our society?
