I’m re-watching Game of Thrones Season 1 again after the epic ending of Season 6 Finale. Anyway, I can’t get Jaime Lannister’s words out of my brain. Days has passed but it’s still echoing in my head.
“The things I do for love.”
Love’s such a beautiful and lovely word. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, it means a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person. If so, how come this pure word can throw a shade of grey in our society?
Let get back to Jaime Lannister, shall we? He said this famous quote before pushed poor Bran from the tower. (From those of you who don’t watch Game of Thrones, Bran caught him and his twin sister had sex so he attempted to kill Bran in order to keep a secret. Now you all caught up.) According to him, it was because of love that made him decide to end the poor boy’s life. However, does it really love that make people do such a bad thing?
The answer is no.
When people did something bad or wrong, they always tried to find an excuse to make themselves feel better. And love turn out to be the best one. They could say that they did all that for the one they love. How sick was that … blame someone you love and care for your wrongdoing.
You know, bad thing is just a mistake no matter how big or small. People makes mistake. It’s in our nature. It’s our way to learn and gain experience.
Don’t blame love for all mistakes you made since you did it even though you knew it was wrong. You did it because it was your decision. Despite all that, you readied to accept the unpleasant consequences of your actions. More importantly, you have to take responsible from what you did and make everything better.
Just remember that … you can make mistakes and embrace it as life’s lesson.
