Is that me in the movie Silver Lining Playbook?

I watched The Silver Lining Playbook yesterday, and it felt like I was watching myself on a mirror. At first I thought this dude (Bradley Cooper) is so lame, but as I watched on I began to see how I was just like him (his character in the movie). Well for those who have not seen the movie here’s a short synopsis {Warning Spoiler Alert} The movie is about Pat Solatano who is released into his parents' care after eight months of treatment for undiagnosed bipolar disorder. He comes home from work one day and finds his wife in the shower with another man getting jiggy, he loses his cool and beats the shit out of him, which leads him to being sentenced and treated at the mental hospital. But his recovery seems far from certain, when he stops taking his medication and becomes increasingly obsessed with winning back his estranged wife, from whom he has a restraining order bla bla bla. {Spoiler End}

As we sat there watching and laughing at his crazy antics, I began to see a lot of myself. In my mind I was like, “shit, I said the same thing, did the exact same thing, feel exactly same way” and was equally obsessed with my girlfriend no more. In my mind I knew we were never getting back together, but denial keeps that uninspiring false hope alive. “If I change, be a better person, we can get back together”. That’s what you tell yourself every day, and deep down inside you know that that’s bullshit. And the sad part is that, it keeps you from appreciating new people that come into your life.

I just read a blog (read it) in which the writer compared love to drinking whiskey (how apt lol) and I must say she described it very well. If falling in love is like drinking whiskey then breaking up must be the hangover... there’s no curing it (well there is one and that’s having another glass of whiskey but I don’t recommend it). And just like curing a hangover, moving on is the hardest part, but, I've learned that if you felt that love in ever fibre of your body even for that very short time, you must be grateful to that person for it. Some people go through an entire lifetime happily married with kids never feeling it.

I don’t even know why I'm writing this shitty review/recommendation cum emotional outburst. A lot of people will be reading this and be like “Dammit another emotional blog post!” but come on guys gimme a break, I'm an emotional guy :-D.  Anyway what I really wanted to say is that you should watch the movie. Stellar performance by Bradler Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence and the supporting actors. But I must say the married guy in the movie was so damn depressing…I mean why the fuck did you get married to be so miserable?. And I wonder if it really is that way in real life? All that trouble to be so miserable...

Watch the movie trailer.

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with
hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to contribute to
the discussion. It's triggered by the passion displayed in the post I looked at. And after this post "Is that me in the movie Silver Lining Playbook?". I was actually excited enough to post a comment ;) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it look like like some of these comments look like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I'd like to
keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list all of all your community
sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I believe what you posted made a lot of sense. But, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed people's attention?
I mean "Is that me in the movie Silver Lining Playbook?" is a little
vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you've
written. Just my opinion, it would bring your
posts a little bit more interesting.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You definitely know what youre talking about, why
throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
