These days, a lot of us prefer going out socializing, but there are days that we just want to stay home. Whilst some of us actually prefer it that way. Home is where we can relax and be our unfiltered selves comfortably, and you have every right to do so after a long busy day in school or at work.

Home is where you can get randomly in touch with your emotional side. Possibly because you have nothing better to do but reminisce and reflect or maybe you’re just unconsciously looking for a reason to grab a bag of popcorn and a bowl of ice cream all for yourself. If that’s the case then let me assist you with that and let’s get it started.

Think back when you wanted someone so bad that you thought it might work out, but then (wait for it..) you didn’t end up together. You want to think that fate played with you, or that life took too much control. Hence, having the one that got away. The person who left you with memories and casually playing them back and forth at the back of your head, thinking if you would get another shot at it that you’ll do better next time.

But will there be a next time?

The question may have bothered you for a while now, and this is where I attempt to comfort you and say:

“We’ll never know, you might still get your chance someday with the person, and if not maybe someone better is yet to come along.”

Know that you are not in the battle alone, there are people who have experienced the same thing. I could list them down, but you may not know them at all. Instead, I have listed a few movies that may get you through the night, to get you preparing that bag of popcorn and bowl of ice cream.
