Heartbroken Notes: Day 12

Day # 12 (April 22, 2011)

Flipping through the cable channels, I stopped on HBO. It was one of the few channels that didn't have annoying Spanish dubbing. So there was the glowing animated character of Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty. I felt the side of my mouth curl in delight upon the strong confrontation of his over-the-top, ridiculously cartoonish acting onscreen. It was already a little halfway into the film when I found myself finally placing the remote down.

Gnawing away on the now browning apple slices; I re-familiarized myself with the movie remembering that though I had seen it a while back, I had forgotten most of the scenes.

Then came this one scene that turned me into a pathetic sap. The "I Want Her To Be Happy" scene towards the end that made my heart writhe in pain and eventually bawl. I swear, tears ran down my cheeks like I was two years old again.

God: Grace. You want her back?

Bruce: No. I want her to be happy, no matter what that means. I want her to find someone who will treat her with all the love she deserved from me. I want her to meet someone who will see her always as I do now, through Your eyes.

God: Now that's a prayer.


I cried because (like any other hopeless romantic douche crying over a RomCom), I knew deep inside that I was this character...

I knew that I was Bruce.
And his prayer was my prayer.

I'll be gone for another good month, and I hope he realizes what truly makes him happy. Now if it means that I can no longer be part of the picture, I will die a thousand times -- but I will accept it... because I only want his happiness in exchange for my absence...

And that's how much I truly love this man.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across
this in my search for something concerning this.

Can I simply say what a relief to find somebody that genuinely understands what
they're talking about on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people ought to read this and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you are not more popular because you most
certainly possess the gift.
