Mom had an affair 18 years ago, I [18M] am the product of it. My dad just informed me of all this, and told me he will not pay for my college, while my siblings got their college experience paid by our dad.

******* constantly emphasises on the power of family. Children are the culmination of their parents’ hopes and dreams. They are always together. No matter what happens, family is always there with you.

******* also strongly points towards life. Pain is just as much part of it as happiness. Tragedy is always right around the corner-never something you can prepare for.

******’s struggle asks us what is the purpose of living if it means suffering. The ending gives us the answer. It’s the very suffering that makes us stronger. Never regret what got you to this point, what made you who you are.

It’s just as ****** said, “Don’t lose yourself.” All the tragedy will never out-weight the happiness. It’s always worth it. In the end, he finally accepts this.

His family is as much part of him as he is. Living a life never having met ***** or ****** would be tantamount to throwing it away.

The ending is what finally brings it all to a full circle. ****** and ***** went to the ends if the world to be together, and the ending is the realisation of that unbreakable bond.

In the first scene ****** asked ****** if he could still love life even when happy and fun things never stay unchanged.

Here, at the end of their journey, ****** realises it’s because of those happy things, life is worth loving; and nothing could ever take them away.

******* presents life the way it truly is: painful, short, fragile and beautiful.

No other ending could have demonstrated this idea so powerfully. It is truly the most uplifting ending I’ve seen and I wouldn’t want it in any other way.
