“Love is blind, they say; sex is impervious to reason and mocks the power of all philosophers. But, in fact, a person’s sexual choice is the result and sum of their fundamental convictions. Tell me what a person finds sexually attractive and I will tell you their entire philosophy of life. Show me the person they sleep with and I will tell you their valuation of themselves. No matter what corruption they’re taught about the virtue of selflessness, sex is the most profoundly selfish of all acts, an act which they cannot perform for any motive but their own enjoyment – just try to think of performing it in a spirit of selfless charity! – an act which is not possible in self-abasement, only in self-exultation, only on the confidence of being desired and being worthy of desire. It is an act that forces them to stand naked in spirit, as well as in body, and accept their real ego as their standard of value. They will always be attracted to the person who reflects their deepest vision of themselves, the person whose surrender permits them to experience – or to fake – a sense of self-esteem .. Love is our response to our highest values – and can be nothing else.”
A slight view on the connection between desire, love and our own selfesteem. As we always think that our emotions and desire are coming from different places and they’re not linked somehow to eachother or to our own perspective about ourselves, but that is not entirely true because our emotions can be unreasonable but they’re not seperated !
“Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they’re not with a partner then it doesn’t really count. They’re still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don’t discuss that, because it’s too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist. ” Jane Campion
Both men and women complete each other, none can deny that 🙂
Happy women’s day Tunisia!
To give and not expect anything back, that is love
To cherish every moment knowing it won’t last, that is love
To pretend you are fine when you are not, that is love
To keep smiling even when you bleed inside, that is love
To say the words though they come out hard, that is love
Seeing this post and wondering:
Being good, is it because of your innate natural instinct or is it a result of your weakness and cowardness to fight and prove your existence and your worth in this selfish society!
I’m terribly enormously sorry!
I’m sorry for misleading you …
I’m sorry for convincing you that you’re an extraordinary person who will be living fairytales in her life, for telling you that everyone around you is wrong and blinded to see the truth, the truth about the real purpose of life, but I was the wrong one. Sorry for brainwashing your small head with all the scenes you’ve seen in your stupid happy ending movies or read in your shallow perfect plotted book collection.
I’m sorry for making you a victim of your own imagination, sorry for making a fool of you in those times when you had to confront real world with your dreamy thoughts and mythical values.
I’m sorry for leaving you alone, incomprehensible, outcast in your own perfect pinky world.
That being said, I know you would expect me to change, I promise I’ll try but it will take time to recover into what I really am, just another ordinary person who’s afraid to be alone and seeks for happiness.
Finally, thanks for the enlightenment dear Louis C.K. you’ve been a great inspiration.
Better days are coming! So don’t worry dear, just be patient and work hard to get what you asked for. And remember that what goes around eventually will come around, so always do the right thing and do it well!
