Good things come to those who are willing to wait.

I saw this picture on my dash today and started having very deep thoughts about Ellie & Carl that I just have to get out there.
I mean the first 10 minutes of Up when you see their whole life story made me cry three times the first time I saw it and I still cry every time I start the movie but seriously, can we just take a moment to look at and appreciate this?
Ellie and Carl are very, very different from the time they are children, but he never makes her change, and she accepts him how he is, quiet and shy and everything else. And even in this moment, when they both are obviously in a massive amount of pain because they wanted to have a baby and she can’t, instead of blaming her, instead of just wallowing in self-pity with her, he sees that she is hurting and picks himself up so he can help her.
He really, truly, deeply loves her and cares about her way more than he has ever cared about himself, and it’s not in a terrible self-deprecating “I’m worthless” kind of way, it’s because he legitimately cares about her more than his own wants and needs. Because cheering her up, making her happy, is what also makes him happy, and she feels exactly the same about him.
They both would give up anything for the other person, which is why they never have to.
