In a way connected with my second last post, I’ll publish this.
I’m sorry to bother you, my dear readers, but I’m living a period at the moment where the main feeling is the one of being powerless. Everything seems happening continuously leaving me with no choice.
I need at least to feel I’m in control and powerful and strong in my head! And writing on my blog helps a lot!
I think I am an eclectic type of person. It is very difficult to find something I dislike; actually, you can count the things I don’t like on the fingertips of the two hands.
Besides, with the time passing by, I realized that things I didn’t like before have become very interesting, like the second world war.
In these pages, little by little you’re discovering what I really love and I’m very passionate about.
With this post, you’ll discover something more!
I love martial arts and, as you gathered from my previous blog, I’d love to be stronger and cooler! I used to go to karate lessons during middle high school and, as far as I remember, I’ve never felt better and more self-confident in my life.
Although I haven’t done something like it for ages, I never stopped to be interested in the field and also, I’ve never said no to an action/ martial art film or TV shows.
To be brutally honest, the reason why I’m writing this post is trying to understand, through writing, why I feel so good and satisfied when I watch action scenes.
I think I’ve always been like it. I remember I used to watch Steven Segal’s films in loop when I was younger.
I guess everything was connected to the fact I did karate for three years when I was ten.
It was probably the most peaceful time ever, I felt good, I felt relaxed, understood, in my place, self-confident.
I was an entirely, totally different person or so I remember my old self as this. I wish I can recreate the same effect.
At the moment, as you know, I’m very stressed, and also, I have no spare time. Because of that I wouldn’t be able to look for a gym and start lessons of any martial art at all. Mostly, adding up to all that, you should consider that my back is very weak.
I guess that watching action scenes is a kind of palliative. They recall the sensation and makes me feel relaxed.
So sometimes when I feel a bit sad or restless or even angry I watch a film where the main themes are fights and action.
On this respect, I found out a couple of years ago that Chinese films are perfect for stress release.
They’re so packed with action and so poor of dialogue and, sometimes, of plot, that they’re like a full immersion for an emergency treatment.
How do you vent?
