I’ve heard people talking about the reason they watch movies. Because movies so relate to their life. They get to know others have the same problems.
Wow! These reasons really irk me. Ask why!
It’s just so illogical. What would you get by knowing that others have the same story? Would your problems evaporate by knowing it? And you would probably never get the hottest hero or heroine that showed up in that film so you must as well feel pleasure in wallowing in misery over your oh-so-boring commonplace partner or the one who doesn’t exist at all.
How do those glam celebrities spend their lives anyway? The most famous ones I’ve heard about are usually running back and forth to the rehab, are involved in some fickle relationship, take antidepressants all the time and end up dying by getting too much drunk in a disgraced state in a disgraced hotel suite.
Now instead of getting all excited because someone else suffers like you, would not it be better to have solutions to your problems?? Yes?
Look at the other side. Stories of the best people that walked on the face of this earth. The prophets. And their companions. Yes, they had problems too. Common life problems that we can relate to. But their stories give us solutions. They were successful for real.
How did they spend their lives? They dealt with their problems in the most wonderful ways, had romance and true friendship interwoven in their lives and they died such that angels covered their dead bodies and the skies cried over their departure and their names are written in gold in the hearts of people who know the truth when they see it. SubhanAllah. What a beautiful ending to a true story.
Take your pick.
