I realize that I’m still young and selfish. When I get mad, I try to control myself but it is quite hard to grasp that self control. I tend to think only of myself at the moment rather than to think that other from his or her perspective. When that others say that they’re sorry, I need to accept that apologize and put down my pride. Certainly, I can’t fix this problem in a short time, but I am going to fix it and be a better person.
“Wonderful stuff, you know, little things like that. Ah, but, those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about. That’s what made her my wife. Oh and she had the goods on me, too, she knew all my little peccadillos. People call these things imperfections, but they’re not, aw that’s the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. You’re not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense. This girl you met, she isn’t perfect either. But the question is: whether or not you’re perfect for each other. That’s the whole deal. That’s what intimacy is all about. Now you can know everything in the world, sport, but the only way you’re findin’ out that one is by givin’ it a shot.”—Sean Maguire, Good Will Hunting (via danylbyun)
