Loved, Separated, and Reunited

Love triangles can always be complicating and frustrating to the audience. There’s always going to be people that want a certain couple or they want the other guy to get the girl, vice versa. Throught out many movies there has been that little storyline where there’s a man and a woman and they fall in love and through a series of events are somehow separated and the woman ends up marrying someone else and a few years go by and the two ex-lovers somehow reunite and the flame is sparked up again. In the book The Count of Monte Cristo, Edmond Dantes was to marry a woman named Mercedes and unforseen tragedies occurred and he was sent to prison and she eventually married a different man and had a child with him. When Dantes escaped from prison he eventually after YEARS makes his way back to Mercedes to find out she has married his enemy, yet they never lost their feelings for each other. This storyline reminded of many movies that I’ve watched and loved. Here are a few of them.

Disabled and Dedicated

In the book The Count of Monte Cristo, there is a character is who is grandfather and he is completely paralyzed and communicates through blinking. A “yes” is one blink and a “no” is two blinks. When I read about this, it made me think of people who REALLY do live like this. I couldn’t imagine living with this type of disability, I’m sure it’s tough at first and it’s something that can be very challenging. However, there are many people who have overcome their disabilities/paralysis. It just shows that pretty much anything IS possible. It’s very uplifting to read about these people and see what they have accomplished.

A lot of people think that wealth can change a person. I think to some extent that is true. I think there’s a few ways money can have an impact on how a person is or acts. If a child grows up in a home with parents that receive a high income and they get whatever they want and throw tantrums if it’s anything else besides that then they might become adults who keep expecting more and more. They aren’t going to want to settle for less. They’ll only see wealth as a sign of happiness in life and possessions will make them happy.

Letters to Kids


Children at a young age do need inspiration and kind words to instill confidence. My friend and I have been doing this sort of project where we’ve been making cards and writing nice things in them. We take quotes from Dr. Seuss books and anything we think will make them feel a little bit happier or laugh. Our goal is to make sure they feel, even for just a moment, a little more proud of themselves and that they can accomplish anything that they set their mind on. We have an instagram page and we really need more followers and I would appreciate any blog readers who have an account to go follow: projectdarling

Anger Towards Your Family

I’m sure a lot of people get frustrated with their family or even get into fights and arguements. To me… it’s normal. Not to say it’s okay though. When you’re born, you’re born into a family or adopted into one. You don’t have a say who your family members are going to be or how they’re going to treat you as a child. You could get the nicest aunt in the world or the meanest. It’s if you let their behavior affect you or not and whether you choose to do something about it or leave it be.

You can get as angry as you want and do something you’ll regret

or you can take a second, chill out, and decide how you’re going to ignore it, change the things that make you angry, or confront your family member.


A few things that may help are going to family therapy, walking away from the situation, saying VERY politely that they offended you or that you don’t appreciate the way they’re acting, literally I will kill people with kindess and it makes my sister feel so guilty and she apologizes. So that’s just one way I handle things and ignoring really does it. But all in all it’s very important to stay on good terms with your family or close friends because the reason they’re in your life is to be involved in your life, they help you and comfort you when you’re going through a rough time and without them, you have no emotional support.
