I’ve been watching a lot of Girls lately and it’s been hilarious and so awkward. It’s like I can’t stop watching it. I will say it’s smart and funny and Lena Dunham is very acerbic in an unassuming way. But I can’t help feeling extremely awkward when I’m watching it.
I will say that it has taught me a few things.
Shoshanna: I can’t be surrounded by your negativity while I’m trying to grow into a fully formed woman. You hate everything!
You said it Shosh! If there is one thing I have learned in my short 27 years, it’s that I feel better when I am around happy, optimistic people. Now that’s not to say that when your friend is having a hard time, you shouldn’t be there for her. You should. But if someone is constantly being mean to you or being constantly negative around you, well then, maybe it’s time to take some distance.
The flip side of this is that I also try to be a positive person myself. It’s important to lift up others and yourself. It can be hard and I’m not perfect at it. Well, maybe I’m not even good at it, but I’m working on it. And that’s optimistic right? 🙂
Be open and positive and be around people who are open and positive. And for goodness sake, don’t hate everything!
Hannah: Please don’t tell anyone this, but I wanna be happy.
It is extremely important to know what you want. It is also extremely important to let yourself admit if you don’t know what you want. Just be honest with yourself.
Also, I think it’s Brave to admit what you want even if you are scared you won’t get it. I want to be happy too. I’m less scared to admit it… I want it terribly. But I am afraid of failing. Of not being happy. And that’s ok. It’s a normal thing to be scared about. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. And that’s the truth!
Hannah: There are certain people who are meant to remain in your past. I made a mistake trying to repurpose you.
Ok. I am just going to say this. When you break up with someone, break up with him. Unless he is the one. And then get back together. Obviously.
Hannah: It’s a Wednesday night baby and I’m alive!
This one is my favorite. Live in the moment. Eat cake. Make mistakes. Solve problems. Enjoy it all. Live it all. We only get one life and it’s beautiful. Don’t miss a moment.
Tonight will be Wednesday night… are you alive? YEAH!
