Last night we watched Sense and Sensibility. It had been a few years since we have watched this movie. I just love Jane Austen and her understanding of women!
There is one scene in the movie where the overly expressive middle sister, Mariann, finds herself heartbroken over Mr. Willoughby's lack of returned affection. Her practical, sensible older sister Elinor asks her, "Did he tell you he loved you?" Mariann says, "Yes, everyday. It was never said, but always implied."
Isn't that how we get ourselves so confused? We find ourselves in relationships where every day a feeling is implied, yet never spoken. So in our minds we imagine a relationship, a future, and we have hope! Then, just like Mariann, many of us find ourselves broken hearted over these undefined friendship.
If you have not watched this movie, I recommend you check it out!
