Have you ever asked your mother, father, sister, friend, girlfriend or boyfriend: ‘Why do you love me?’
Were you satisfied with the answer?
If he/she gave you the best Grammy award winning speech of an answer and you still didn’t believe you were loved then you are absolutely, ridiculously, unmistakably human.
And yes, being human is a frustrating thing. Our ability to feel loved is not just influenced by the people in our lives now, but by every person and situation that managed to touch our hearts and our souls from day one.
That is why they say: ‘We accept the love we think we deserve.’
But this is a sad, sad reality. Because as wretched, incapable human beings, we deserve little love. As humans that hurt, lie, steal and abuse, we deserve little love. But somehow, people keep coming into our lives and telling us how much they love us. And every time we are just forced to ask: ‘But why? Why do you love me?’
This short film written and directed by me and filmed and edited by Gael Level in Paris, France captures this phenomenon. Make sure to write in the comments how this made you feel.
