Here I am and it’s 6:14 am and the first thing I do after I have made my coffee is turn on my Netflix and search for the new show I have been binge watching… “Girlfriends Guide To Divorce”… yes it is soooooo good and I will tell you why I think this show is really good and why I think every woman should watch it.. weather your happily married, not married, have a boyfriend or girlfriend and or not committed… because “Girlfriends” like these I swear you can’t find anywhere… and if there are any out there please say “Hi” because I want to be your friend.
So a few months ago I saw this show on Netflix but never decided to watch it.. I thought ugh another chic flick maybe something I will definitely get bored and tired quick.. so I would always scroll away from it to watch other shows.. now let’s be honest sometimes we feel some sort of emotion that not even ice cream can make it go away..so as you all know I suffer PTSD, depression and anxiety.. and for the past few months I have been going through some rough patches which would easily trigger my mental health to the point where I would not even recognize who I am nor who I was in the first place.
So within these emotions I decided to try this show and for a moment I felt I was part of it… I found myself crying, feeling emotional and relating to each character in it…but above all Abby … the main character who holds it all in and pretends like everything is ok just because she wants to be the one there for everyone while she is leaving herself alone and forgotten… I can go on and on about is women, about our day to day struggles and what we want, need but can’t ever find.. from diapers and dirty clothes… to wine and sexy lingerie…
Now let’s admit one thing here.. life freaking sucks sometimes because of all the adulting we have to do and commit too… but let’s also face that when we truly embrace nature, and the true meaning of life.. we can over see and over come any obstacle we come across, and why is this? .,. Well I guess we all know the answers to this… “we are women” and “we are damn strong”… we are truly goddess and beautiful souls that can cry and smile at the same time without others seeing the pain… now who can carry that power?…. WE do!!!
So as the days went by I began really relating to this show to a point I realized… hey!!! You need to get back to writing, you love to pore your heart and thoughts on a peace of paper and these thoughts can empower any women struggling in the real world.. yeah not everyone has the resources to write and be successful but in this world nothing is impossible… I noticed that these women carried a special character that related to my own persona.. it doesn’t mean I have multiple personalities… I believe they know how to create such show that we can sit and say wtf … I am a little of everyone … but I truly relate to Abby… this mom, sister, friend, wife and daughter who carries it all and never shows the pain until she explodes… but guess what?… she still gets back up and takes control of herself.
And here I am still watching this show.. holding on to something to help me cope with my emotional pain… I love how my mind can escape to a different stage when I dive in these personalized characters and can help but notice that I too can make of my life anything I want.. yes even if we are strong, we need someone or something to remind us the purpose of it all.. now where does it go?… we will never know right, all we can do is live each day and try to make the best of our laughter, cries, pain and anguish… be there for me and I will be there for you..
Take some time to watch it… I will guarantee the deeper you dive.. the deeper you will find yourself and you too will come to some senses as to what you want to accomplish in life.. not all is over.. we have so much to give in life.. we just need to be stronger and confident than we normally are.. so don’t take my word for it.. head on over to “Netflix “ and binge watch “Girlfriends Guide To Divorce “… then come on over and give me your thoughts.. I love picking other peoples brains… until then and my next blogging post.. come on over..invite your girlfriends.. grab your wine, coffee or tea.. heck even a beer and enjoy reading my different stories…
Yours truly ….
