We are not what we watch.

But isn’t that how it is? We watch the movies and we read the books thinking that if we  became shy and mysterious, we would become the character. We want the fairytale life of a princess and her prince. But they call it a movie because it’s not real. It’s a script and its words on a paper that lives in someone else’s imagination. You can’t go around pushing people around and expect them to chase you in the rain and confess their love for you. Because well, you aren’t that amazing. You’re a human being. The boring subconscious of a man’s mind is not a reality to live by. This isn’t the titanic or twilight. You can’t expect everyone to jump when you fall.
