“People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.”—Sophie Turner, in response to Sansa hate (x)
This reminds me of when I was younger and I would stay up late until 4am because I had terrible insomnia and anxiety. I would listen to music to slowly ease me into sleep. There is something about his voice that calming and reminds me Craig David’s, which was my epiphany earlier today. Late at night I would think too much like I am doing right now.
I think too many people are looking for love and not enough think about what love entails. I have loved and lost so many times that I almost thought the word love had lost it’s meaning to me, but I don’t think it’s that. I think I have come to a certain realization about it. The problem is too many people assign others to potential relationship partners and people who are not, not creating a space where people can come and go. There are so many varying shades in between and I think our language limits us from expressing those differing hues of romantic “love.” We feel that if we get along with someone and we have good sex then that is love, and I have been guilty of such offense. But the term love which is devoid of it’s meaning to me now entails some form of significance to others. I believe you can “love” many people in various ways as I just described and I think most people do. Just because we care for each other, get along, and can look at each other naked without disgust does not love make. What we need as a people is to identify those varying shades and take away some of the importance we put on this “love” thing. I’m not saying take away relationships, but understand love is an attachment to another person. Also the “looking for love” thing bothers me. Why look? Why not just be happy with the relationships you have with people? Why not see that if love appears it’s much more rare and beautiful than if you go search for it. Yes I know people don’t want to be alone but that is why I think we should place more value in the relationships we have than this one big love. I am grateful for the flings, for the almost romances, for the best guy friends, for the deep longings, the intimate moments with strange men, the deep seated loves, and the people in passing. I am grateful for all those experiences, The big love though really just stands as a monolithic mound of feelings that can’t not fully be expressed with our vocabulary. It is our limitation on love that makes it so damn heartbreaking.
