The Holiday: Lesson Learned
When we watch romantic movies, we feel better about ourselves. As a result, they inspire us to believe that we can do anything. If you’re a fan of romantic films like I am, you probably believe in the existence of genuine love because you’ve seen it.
True love and monogamy can be mocked by cynics who only watch romantic comedies for their humorous appeal. Please, if you haven’t already, take action. We’ll have much more fun when we can say, “Hey, we told you so!” when you find yourself in a relationship!
For me, it’s difficult to pick a favorite because there are so many excellent films to select from. I know it’s not the soundtrack because I can’t remember a single song. Even though Jack Black is one of my favorite actors, I’ve never been a fan of any of his subsequent films.
If you’re interested in what this film has taught me about love, I’ve got a few thoughts for you below, so keep reading.
1. You can’t expect love to find you. Put yourself and what you want out there in the world if you want to find love. If nothing else, be more open to the idea of a chance to do something you enjoy. Is it possible that the universe would not be aware of your desires if not for your declaration of them?
- Because love is a choice, it’s impossible to control who you fall for. In the same way that you can’t choose your family, you can’t choose who you fall in love with. Having feelings for someone who isn’t “good” for you is perfectly normal. After all, the heart wants what the heart wants. You can’t control it, but if your heart is shattered, you realize how important it is to seek for certain red flags or characteristics in a potential partner to help you manage your feelings and emotions.
- Having a relationship with a married boss is unlikely to work for you. In the event that you have a hidden connection with your boss, who is either married or engaged, such relationship is not a true one. As for the white picket fence, that probably isn’t going to happen for you and your partner. Because of this, I’m sorry to tell you that you and your engaged or married boss are not destined to be together.
4. You’re meant to be the star of your own show. Kate Winslet’s character in The Holiday is told she should be the star of her own life, and nothing could be further from the truth. You only get one life, and it’s critical that you understand how crucial and valuable it is to put yourself first. Don’t spend your life for someone else, and don’t do things to impress others. You are the author of this tale. Self-love and self-improvement are not mutually exclusive goals.
5. It’s fine to have a one-night stand. You are not a whore because you had a one-night stand. It elevates you to the level of becoming a person. If you’re going on a vacation by yourself, you can drink, meet a sexy guy you like, and have sex with him in the conviction that you won’t see him again. To see them again and perhaps fall in love with one another is fine.
6. There is nothing that can stop two people who are truly in love from making it work. You’ll do anything to be with the right person if you’re in love and want to be with them forever. Even though Jude Law and Cameron Diaz’s characters are separated by vast distances in The Holiday, their romance succeeds. Her heart belongs to him, and she knows she can’t go back to Los Angeles without him. He knows he can’t let her board the plane because he can’t bear to think of a second without her being there.
However, long-distance relationships may still be possible. It simply means that when you truly care about someone, you let them know, and you’ll go surpass your limits to make sure that your relationship succeeds, whether you’re together or not.
- Whether or not you have a “meet cute” moment is up to you. The Holidays told me what a meet cute is, and by definition, a meet cute is a scene in which a future romantic pair meets for the first time in a way that is considered adorable, engaging, or amusing. It’s a similar concept to “love at first sight.” You’re blessed if you get to experience these romantic moments in your life!
It’s fine if you don’t have a “meet cute” moment. As a result of the Holiday, I no longer feel so out of the loop when it comes to experiencing real-life meet cutes.
The universal language of love is the universal language of love. It’s a universal experience that everyone can identify with. When two individuals are deeply in love, their feelings for one another radiate outward into the cosmos. One of the best examples of this is The Holiday, which I consider to be one of the best examples.
This film’s authenticity and depiction of the various approaches people take to mending shattered hearts impressed me. For example, I’ve known a lot of girls who’ve gotten into relationships with men who weren’t the right fit. And I’ve experienced the pain of being duped myself. As someone who has never had the experience of falling in love with a boss, That’s something I can only picture.
What we all do when hunting for love, finding it, and attempting to keep hold of it can be seen in The Holiday. Is there anything else you’ve gleaned from seeing The Holiday?
