Normal People

Normal People ★★★★½

i ended up rewatching it much sooner than expected, not sure if out of need to pain myself with this impossible relationship or because of the cathartic emotional wash it gives me in the end. either way - or both - it did the job and i’m developing a real love/hate bond with this somber melodrama that feels so much like my own paralyzed, lamenting mind digging its claws into the too soft parts of my being because we’re just really not meant to exist in this weary little body together but somehow we’ll always be okay. maybe there’ll come a point where it will let go and i can stay. until then i’m gonna keep chasing myself through the growing pains
