You guys, the official trailer for “The Fault In Our Stars” has finally arrived. If you have yet to read TFIOS, you still have time before the movie is released, and, trust me, it is time well spent. Without giving too much away, your first step in prepping for this movie is acquiring an army of tissues, because you will need them.
The plot follows two young people, both cancer patients, who fall in love. The story is touching, beautiful and one of my favorites books of all time. Can’t wait to see it on the big screen!
In the meantime, here are three lessons we learned just from watching the trailer!
+ Share Your Story. Your Real Story.
We all have a story and inner issues that often seem too scary to actually speak out loud. Don’t be afraid to find a safe space to open up about what’s on your mind, because, chances are, you will find that you are not alone. No matter what you face, there are so many people out there who feel the similarly. Your story matters, and Love Is ALWAYS Louder than those who turn their back on you.
+If You’re Angry, It’s OK to Break Something.
When facing tough times, it totally is OK to vent by embracing your inner Justin Bieber and tossing a couple eggs (please, not at a house, people, cars, etc). Sometimes it’s actually quite therapeutic to just throw an egg at the fence, or breaking a (cheap, not expensive) plate on your own driveway. Just don’t grab your mom’s china set and start throwing it in your kitchen, ya know? As the eggs or plates shatter, let that anger go and collect your thoughts.
+ Oblivion Is No Bueno.
As Hazel Grace fears all she will be is a grenade in life, by passing away and being an explosion in other people’s lives, she also fears life will go on and she will be forgotten. The truth is, people will always live on, through memories the stories we share about them.
