13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn has taken to Instagram to sum up 2017. He has watched Call Me By Your Name and was deeply impressed by this movie. Alongside a picture of himself and his boyfriend, British singer Sam Smith, Brandon quoted André Aciman. He wrote that his 2017 was full of tings which were so hard to handle that the only way to cope with them is to look at them from the positive point of view. “In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out, don’t be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching others forget us sooner than we’d want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of 30 and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!” he wrote.
