*i just sold “game of thrones” to a friend of mine.
now that she has free time,
she is thinking about watching that epic series.
i try to keep in mind that the final season didn’t happen,
but she didn’t need to know that.
i’ve been thinking a lot about that show tho,
especially “the starks” storyline.
for those who watched,
did you notice (light spoilers) that if…
and rob didn’t die,
or they all didn’t get separated,
they wouldn’t have leveled up the way they did?
those bad things had to happen so they could unleash their inner powers.
they all learned the art of finding self by being thrown to the jackals and hyenas.
if they didn’t,
their story lines definitely wouldn’t have happened.
the two that stand out:
Sansa learned to play the game and literally had folks killed without lifting a finger
Arya was the who saved them all if she didn’t learn to be an assassin
hell even theon had to suffering as “reek” to find his purpose.
all of this made me think about life too.
…need to lose it all in order to be who need to be
…need to go through extreme pain to take life more seriously
…need to lose someone in order to find someone better
sometimes a person(s) needs to lose YOU so they can appreciate you better.
he/she might have left,
and it hurts like fuck,
but they might need to become better in order to deal with you.
you emotionally kill them off so you can make room for the right one.
life is like a big ass game of thrones.
we are all fighting for different things in life.
mine has been literally like a stark child.
I was thrown into these forests as a spoiled and naive child.
People took advantage of me,
but I learned how people operate.
I’ve grown to be a lot stronger,
learned how to handle my emotions,
and didn’t let strange dick be my downfall.
I learned patience and how to fight back when someone violates.
Learning which battles to fight helped a lot as well.
i like to think i ended up being the anti-hero in my story.
i’m sure your backstory to how “you” is just as interesting.
you either got humbled or became the villain.
i love when folks underestimate someone,
but that person ends up being the king or queen.
for this season of our lives,
instead of an army of the dead trying to destroy us,
we are battling the Rona.
all of our kingdoms are on the verge of being destroyed,
but we will see whose life has taught them how to fight and survive.
i keep forgetting how far i’ve come and what battles i’ve been in.
low-key: it feels scary right now,
but i’ve been through worst.
new tests always bring about old insecurities tho.
