Yesterday I went to the cinema ( I know bite me I go far too often) . I went to see Love, Rosie, I didn’t really know what it was about so I had no expectations at all and I have to say I loved it. In essence it is about missed opportunities, best friends who love each other but get caught up in life. It really was a true gem.
I left the film pondering ex-relationships, things left unfinished from my past and perhaps even some missed opportunities. Life and love to me is intriguing one chance meting, one missed meeting, a miss-communication and life changes and take a different course- fascinating. I often feel so sorry for the young people now, because. lets face it getting away from an ex-partner is far more difficult then it was in my day. In my day you just left the area and bingo you never saw them again. No mobile, no Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, no one knew anything about you so no gossip to spread or share. I did manage in my youth to leave a trail of devastation behind me and never really had to pay for it. I often wonder what might be different if my life was been played out in modern day times.
Anyway what is my point! Yes I do have one.
This all got my thinking as to what would be the one piece of advice I would have given my younger self. That bit of advice would be to complete things, to end things on terms that were clear with friends and partners. My life feels like one long list on unclear unknowns and unfinished. Something I probably could have never got away with nowadays but never the less it is important advice.
What advice would you have give your young self?
