"It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault."

Yo, I know I'm mad late, but have y'all seen 'Good Will Hunting'? 

I had to let Madison out to pee so I was randomly up at 7:30 this morning watching it for the first time, and it is so good! That scene where Matt Damon read the NSA for filth is everything! 

Oh, there's so much relevant stuff going on here. The trouble of being gifted and not knowing what to do with it/being too stubbornly afraid to do something with it, the simultaneous desperation to feel "real" and yet hide from the world, the question of what measures success or failure, the wonders of therapy when it actually works, recovering from childhood abuse and trauma, the fear of giving people the power and proximity to let you down.

Was released when I was 5, and it took me 18 and a half years to see it for my self, but man. Man... this movie is it.
