Hot Night

Just finished watching Closer. Disturbed.

It is a hot night. And Natalie Portman on screen didn't help the situation :P get better.

Anyhow. Some thoughts.

What is so important about truth? What if you can't handle the truth? Why demand the truth? A friend once told me, she rather not have her partner tell her of his infidelities, if any. I have always wanted the truth. And the truth is I cannot accept betrayal. There can be no forgiveness from me. And that applies to myself too. But can I handle the truth? Can you?

Second thing. There is such a thin line between fidelity and infidelity. It is so easy to cross the line. Just a fleeting thought, that one moment, can change the scheme of things. How transient love actually is. How do you know when it happens? How can you love so much, and destroy it? How close have you come to betrayal?

How do you separate lust from love? They aren't quite separable, don't you think? Can you truly say when you do things out of plain lust, that you do not hope for more? Not more lust, but hope of love.

Great thought provoking questions. I know I always say I want the truth, but when I find it, I'm not sure what to do with it. Usually it puts me into a tail spin of denial for a while until I can begin to face reality.

Hmm...Your last paragraph really grabbed me; was just thinking about it today.

I think that people who tell themselves that it's only a physical thing are in denial.
