Describe an interesting talk or speech

you should say:
when you heard it
where you heard it
what it was about
and explain why you think it was interesting.

when

where

what

why interseting

unrequited love
perfect, we love them, dinner, BF/GF, marry,
out of reach
we haven't been loved back
pain
forget the beloved, try to think of someone or something else, doesn't work
the cure for love is to think more intensely constructively about who they might really be
we assume, on the basis of a few charming outside details that
intense long-lasting and vicious
it isn't their charms that are keeping us magnetized, it is our lack of knowledge of their flaws
perfect, not familiar with them, know
lack of knowledge of their flaws
we just haven't got to know them properly
from close up, every human who has ever lived proves deeply challenging
cure: we must get to know them better
decisively irritating, everyone does, we have to believe this
short-tempered, vain, deceitful, crass
cold, over-emotional and chaotic
irritating, everyone does, we have to believe this

unrequited love
come for dinner or marry us, we would know bliss
out of reach
forget the beloved
try to think of someone or something else
yet this kindness is deeply misguided

from close up, every human who has ever lived proves deeply challenging

the cure for love does not lie in ceasing to think of the fugitive lover
but in learning to think more intensely constructively about who they might really be
from close up, challenging, short-tempered, vain, deceitful, crass
sentimental, woolly, cold, over-emotional and chaotic
what prevents us from holding all this in mind in relation to certain people is simply a lack of knowledge

we assume, on the basis of a few charming outside details that
we just haven't got to know them properly

intense long-lasting and vicious
it isn't their charms that are keeping us magnetized, it is our lack of knowledge of their flaws

cure: we must get to know them better
the more we discovered of them, the less they would ever look like the solution to all our problems
if we got to know them better, we'd release how much they had in common with everyone else
passion, reality of another person,
the cruelty of unrequited love isn't really that we haven't been loved back,
rather it's that our hopes have been aroused by someone who can never disappoint us
we lack the knowledge that would set us free
human

we must accept, without quite knowing the details, that they would eventually prove decisively irritating, everyone does, we have to believe this

when&where

two weeks
weibo, twiter
stay at home, went through
short video, happened to see this one
impressive

what

unrequited love.
young age, we haven't been loved back
forget the beloved
try to think of someone or something else
yet this kindness is deeply misguided
fugitive lover
about who they might really be
what prevents us from holding all this in mind in relation to certain people is simply a lack of knowledge
we assume, on the basis of a few charming outside details
we just haven't got to know them properly
perfect charming, it is our lack of knowledge of their flaws
cure: we must get to know them better
if we got to know them better, we'd release how much they had in common with everyone else
passion, full reality of another person,
