Change, Chance, Choice and Spidermanby tween_07 (English | Miscellaneous Section | Feature | Miscellaneous Genre | friendships)
He’s way a lot cuter in black suit. And when I said ‘he’ I meant Spiderman. Yeah right, he’s your friendly neighborhood who wouldn’t hurt anyone’s teeny little fingertip. But guess what? He’s changed but not for long though. At least he has had the moment of breaking free from his normal self. I envy him for that. I’m dying for a change-- a new image, maybe some new friends or new environment to live. I mean, this humdrum existence is just too boring. You do the same things everyday and at the same time. You walk the same path everyday and see people all the same. I need change just like Spiderman.
Spiderman is truly in the person of Peter Parker. He’s a geek in his twenties – and a cute one at that. He’s everybody’s doormat and can’t even stand for himself. But alas! The heavens open an opportunity for this fellow. I like the new attitude his wearing—again, not too long—and in a way it made him feel good. I guess there’s nothing bad about being not so good unless it hurts another person. But come to think of it. We’re humans. He’s a human. And we have faults. Cry if you must. And stand up for yourself when you feel people have step on you. Say things you want to say, don’t hold back. If you won’t stand up for yourself, nobody else will.
As a person and as a friend, it comes so natural to us to hold back from confront our friends about their misfits and faults. Instead, we say things which they want to hear and it’s not good at all. In the long run, mistakes just keep on repeating. Pretensions and misunderstanding are enemies of relationships. In the movie, Spiderman 3, Peter Parker and his friend Harry had an understanding. It went deep and hungered for revenge (It come this far as Movie 3 to finally settle their disputes.) because there were lots of things left unsaid. And the world gets involved in the process. When two friends quarrel, another friend is affected. And eventually, more people will get hurt. Reality check, we’re not helping at all. So, when you have the chance, say what you feel, how you truly feel. After all, it’s what friendship is about.
Change. That’s what the world needs and it better be for the betterment of the people not just for oneself. Though things happen inevitably in the wrong way just remember what Spiderman said, “Whatever comes our way, whatever battle we have raging inside us, we always have a choice… It's the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what's right”.
