All of us have people in our life who we love and cherish deeply, no matter what comes and goes by. Nothing. I repeat nothing can change your love for them. It can be your best friend, sibling, teacher, or even your colleague.
Vin Diesel talks about one such person in his life. Someone who isn’t there anymore. The man is Paul Walker. Fast & Furious isn’t same without him. To pay him a tribute look what Vin Diesel recently posted on his Instagram handle.
In an interview, Vin Diesel got emotional about his best friend and said,
There wasn’t a day, there wasn’t a scene, there wasn’t a second where I didn’t have Paul with me in the making of this movie. It’s not making the movie without Paul, it’s what’s life like? What’s living without Paul?
Such an honest display of emotions. He also mentioned,
The day after the tragedy, for me to fly from Atlanta that night and to show up at his mother’s house and for me to say to his mother, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ and for his mother to say to me ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry’ — I said, ‘Why? Why are you saying sorry to me?’ And she said, ‘Because you lost your other half.
This truly describes the gravity of his loss.
I wasn’t aware of how profound the loss was. You don’t think about it while you are living, and we are probably all a little guilty of not telling people how much I love them while they are here.
And, I can’t think of anything but this. You gotta watch it again!
Sometimes we don’t realize how much we love somebody until we lose them. We don’t express it enough. So, today send a little text to someone you truly cherish in your life; tell them how much they mean to you. Do not take them for granted.
