That’s kind of a heavy question for a romantic at heart, but lets explore this concept just a bit more. I recently re-watched all of the Star Wars movies, and I couldn’t help but think that most of the trouble was caused by people that thought people should just fall in line with little to no explanation. (Side note if you are training, mentoring someone and they ask you a question it is YOUR JOB to answer them. If not someone else just might and the results could be catastrophic.)
The first movies (1-3) tell the story of a boy who did not grow up in the ways of the Jedi’s but they were pretty sure he would be the one to restore balance to the force. He meets his true love but they were forbidden to marry. Anakin decides to risk it ALL of love, setting into motion events that no one sees coming. (Darth Vader is born, arguably one of the BEST villains ever) He looses everything: Padme, his children, and his grandchildren are even now affected by his decision. My question is what would you risk for true love?
In a day where people fall in and out of love like they change their clothes, giving your all seems like a thing of days past.
For the sake of argument, lets say you met THE ONE. I mean toe curling can’t breathe without them love. Then someone tells you, you can’t be with them, could you walk away and leave them and sacrifice your happiness? I wonder if Anakin knew what would happen, the devastation he would cause, if he would still make the same decision.
I will tell you I consider myself a pretty strong woman, but I do not see myself walking away for any reason other than my son…
