The Perk of Accepting The Love You Deserve

The Perk of Accepting The Love You Deserve

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a movie about a troubled outsider who has the good fortune of meeting the right kind of friends, who in turn, meet the kind of friend who sees them and understands them. It's rare to meet people with whom you establish an almost implicit kinship, but when you do, as the titular wallflower Charlie would say, it makes you feel infinite.

With a stellar young cast (a delightfully subdued Logan Lerman, post-Harry Potter Emma Watson, and scenestealer Ezra Miller) and a charming soundtrack (David Bowie's 'Heroes' and Dexys Midnight Runner's 'Come on Eileen' are personal favorites), Perks is a moving, heartfelt triumph for the soul. You will laugh, you will cry, and all at the right times, because there would be a wrong time.

Perhaps the best takeaway comes when Charlie asks his English teacher (masterfully played by Paul Rudd) why we seem to love people who treat us like nothing. He replies, "We accept the love we think we deserve." If you've ever wondered the same thing as Charlie, these would be wise words to live by.

Just remember, everyone deserves to be loved; you may not think you deserve much love, but rest assured that there are people who think that you do deserve it. And that makes all the difference in the world.
