Amor, romantismo e costas quentes

Tenho andado a reflectir muito sobre relacionamentos, paixão, amor, disponibilidade emocional, entrega, vontade de dar e capacidade de receber e lembro-me muita vez do discurso do John Mayer durante o tema "Bold as Love" (cover de Jimmi Hendrix), ao vivo em Los Angeles.

ele começa a falar aos 3:25


E recentemente vi o episódio 4 da segunda temporada de Legion, onde aparece um diálogo fantástico baseado numa frase igualmente fantástica de Hemingway: "The world breaks everyone and afterwards some are strong at the broken places."

"It’s not about being alone or about being in love. It’s about the things we survive.
As it is written, the world breaks everyone and afterwards some are strong at the broken places.
It’s not about erasing all the damage, it’s about the damage itself and how it makes us strong, not weak.
Love is a hot bath, and what happens to things when you leave them in a bath for too long? They get soft and fall apart.
Junkies and masochists and hookers and those who have squandered everything are the ring of brightest angels on heaven.
It’s a war, this life… the things we endure. It’s an apocalypse and who survives that, the lovers or the fighters?
They sell us this lie that love is gonna save us, and all it does it’s make us stupid and weak.
Love isn’t gonna save us, love is what we have to save, and pain makes us strong enough to do it.
All our scars, our anger, our despair… it’s armor!
God loves the sinners best ‘cause our fire burns bright, red bright… burn with me!!"

Por esta altura já me fartei completamente daquele amor romântico, cor-de-rosa e tontinho, já não me diz nada. Enquanto que este tipo de amor, o "I got your back love" e o "burn with me", é provavelmente aquilo que mais sinto falta e parece-me fazer todo o sentido, principalmente quando já conto com alguma experiência de vida, traquejo, jogo de cintura, bagagem e a dita "armadura".

Amor, duches quentes e sobrevivência

Adoro a perspectiva sobre o Amor das personagens Syd e David na série Legion - s02e04

"It’s not about being alone or about being in love. It’s about the things we survive.
As it is written, the world breaks everyone and afterwards some are strong at the broken places.
It’s not about erasing all the damage, it’s about the damage itself and how it makes us strong, not weak.
Love is a hot bath, and what happens to things when you leave them in a bath for too long? They get soft and fall apart.
Junkies and masochists and hookers and those who have squandered everything are the ring of brightest angels on heaven.
It’s a war, this life… the things we endure. It’s an apocalypse and who survives that, the lovers or the fighters?
They sell us this lie that love is gonna save us, and all it does it’s make us stupid and weak.
Love isn’t gonna save us, love is what we have to save, and pain makes us strong enough to do it.
All our scars, our anger, our despair… it’s armor!
God loves the sinners best ‘cause our fire burns bright, red bright.
…burn with me!"
