It's The Perks of Being a Wallflower
A story of permanent moment
I remember how I waited for this novel to be on screen,wishing it will not to fail. How many times have you seen a novel or a book turned into a film and failed to meet the expectations of the readers? For me, it was awfully a lot.
I have read the book before the film and yet, it gave me the same astonishing effect. Blame it to the author and Director of the film, STEPHEN CHBOSKY. Wow, I'm really having a hard time remembering his last name .
If there is one thing I wish could've done in high school, it would be reading his book. EVERY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT SHOULD WATCH or READ, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, because of it's serious perks.

When you make the decision for the prioritize the person you love first, it doesn't really count as love.
You know the time when you make a decision, for the thought that you are making it for people you love because you wanted them to feel happy. Some say the cowardice choice because you refuse to make a decision that you thought they will not be happy about.
Well, Sam made a clear statement of that wrong practice of our's :
Sam: Then why didn't you ever ask me out?
Charlie: I, um... I just didn't think that you wanted that
Sam: Well, what did you want?
Charlie: I just want you to be happy
Sam: Don't you get Charlie? I can't feel that. It's really sweet and everything, but you can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of you and think that counts as love.
What I pulled out from this scene is this: We often sacrifice ourselves to people we love. We forget how to risk and try, fearing that it will damage what we have for them. And that specific selfless act is love to you but not to them because they don't feel that, thus it really could not count as love.
