My Reaction :
This Me before you is such a very beautiful movie which tells us how to fall in love despite of some things that could be a hindrance on loving someone and also it tells us that loving is accepting everything about the person who we love. It’s not because we have something could get from the person but it is somewhat from ourselves, to care and to offer what we have and what could we give. This is all about giving all what someone could give for the sake of the person we love. It is giving up some of the things we used to so that someone who really in need or needs us could save from a diseased, and it could be spiritually, emotionally or even physically.
You know, Loving is the beautiful gift that God has given to us. It is the most beautiful if we really want it and accept everything about it. Because sometimes loving is not asking in return but it is giving all what is necessary without asking for a reward from it.
Wew! Me before this 😍 and Me after this 😭
Yet so beautiful story of two people who just met and fell inlove and cared for each other.
And aaand Ms. Lou is such a Charming Cutey one!
