Hello everyone. Well I spent the day watching my favorite movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s so I decided to write a post about not only how lovely it is but how much I relate to not only Audrey Hepburn (in all her classy glory) but also her character Holly Golightly.
At first glance when you meet Holly you see a girl who is superficial only going after rich men because she wants to use them for their money. But if you look a little deeper what you find is a girl that is just scared to let any man get too close, she doesn’t want to fall in love, and risk losing her identity in someone else. I think a lot of girls can relate to that. Especially those of us who are independent free spirits, the mere thought of being tied down, makes us run for the hills.
But of course the bottom line is that if we live in fear then we won’t ever really get to experience what great love could be in store for us. Right?
“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
