What Netflix’s New ‘A Secret Love’ Teaches Us About Love
The new Netflix movie called ‘A Secret Love’ is a unique, tragic, and sad, yet uplifting love story. It is about two women who meet in the 1940’s and become a couple. However, it is not safe for their relationship to be public, so they hide it from their family, friends and colleagues. For decades.
I don’t want to give away more of the plot, however, after I watched it I took a moment to reflect upon the things that this beautifully told story teaches us and reinforces about love:
Love can be found anywhere, even on a baseball field.
Love can be found in long-term friendships.
Love can be found in long-term relationships.
Love can be taken from you when you least expect it.
Love can be kept secret if it has to be.
Love is one of the few things in our lives that can last decades.
Love can be captured in a series of photos.
Love can be found in a series of old letters.
Love can be between two men.
Love can be between two women.
It is never too early to say I love you.
It is never too late to say I love you.
You can never say ‘I love you,’ too much.
It’s never too late to marry the love of your life.
Love is love. And it’s the most important thing.
