This short, short film says what I have thought for a long time. Our limited ideas about love and family are the cause of much suffering in the world. Many people seek love out of fear: fear of loneliness, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, financial fear. Basing our love of each other on how “safe” we can be, how we can “protect” ourselves from the world and “others,” has the unintended result of increasing fear and loneliness, since our small family unit is all we believe we can rely on.
But the film says it much better than I can.
