Upon Watching 'The Last Song'

Posted by Goldi on Jun 24, 2010 at 10:04 PM
I watched the movie The Last Song last night with Ate Bing. It's a kilig movie, common to the way author Nicholas Sparks writes stories about extraordinary--you will think it doesn't exist or it's very rarely experienced--kind of love, but this one's not all about romantic love though, and that's what I liked about it. It also showed love between parents & children, love between sibs, and love for friends.

For the curious cat in me and because I liked the movie, I searched quotable lines from it because I heard a lot while I was watching, and not only words of wisdom but also sarcasms and humor. But I only found a few documented by IMDB. Probably because the movie is new. The cinemas just ceased to show it a few weeks ago. Too bad I was not able to see it in the theater but I think this is something that you wouldn't mind seeing in a small screen. And in my search, this particular line kind of hit me in the face.

A truth means a lot when it's hard to admit.

It just made a lot of sense, probably because I am currently in a state of denial.
Denial is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud (an Austrian Jewish neurologist), in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence. The subject may use:
  • simple denial - deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether
  • minimisation - admit the fact but deny its seriousness (a combination of denial and rationalisation), or
  • projection - admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility
I chuckled when I read the definition of denial in Wikipedia. How funny it was to find something that speaks so true of yourself.

What am I denying then? I'm afraid I can't talk about it here. I can't even admit it in front of my closest friends, but I think, people who know me for a long time now would be able to tell if I'm just denying something or if I'm really telling the truth. I can say to myself that I'm pretty good at having conviction on something that I would want everybody to believe in that I can even convince myself. But, a truth suppressed will just be more obvious the more you hide it, especially if it's about feelings. Ooops... I might be giving away too much already. I know in time, I'd be ready to admit this.

In time.
