I wouldn’t say I’m the worlds biggest ‘girly’ girl (although who knows, there might be an element of denial in that), neither have i fixated on many tv soaps during my 27 years on this spinning ball. But I am another one in the long list of the worlds sex and the city fans.What is it that locks us girls of all backgrounds, natures, cultures, and interests to a show about life in New York?
Probably nothing to do with the New York part, and more do with the fact that its centered around some truly instinctive needs most of us females live with
The statement that a girl just wants to be loved is completely true.
Whether that’s the romance that involves a dozen roses on valentine’s day……
or in my case somebody that hugs me at the end of each day and reminds me that I have a constant in this crazy world that moves so fast, and that constant is there for me and protecting me.(I should point out here that I am currently single).
For any of you girls out there that are feeling bad about this, Dont. Despite what the world might be telling you….its OK to want to be loved. You’d be more strange if you didn’t. Carrie does a wonderful job of reminding us that love isn’t easy, but I truly believe it will always be worth it (I’ve loved, lost, and the rest of it, but i still happily bear that optimism).
I hear quite a lot of people speaking about the concept of being ‘Left on the shelf’,and I can do nothing but laugh out loud to myself. I know VERY few people in this world that are my mum’s age or older and never met anybody in their life, were married, had kids
etc., (do you?). There are a few out there, and if you in fact take the time to
broach the subject with these few, they’ll usually tell you it was a choice.
Being left on the shelf is almost impossible…just live and learn to
be happy in yourself. That’s when you’re most attractive…
Don’t you wonder why they always say ‘it will happen when you
least expect it’…thats probably true. But my theory is that
it’s probably more to do with the fact that at that point in your life
where you become content in yourself, and feel Ok with showing your true
personality to the world around you…… projecting happiness is much more powerful than we will probably ever realize…(think about the power a smile from a stranger has in the middle of a big city)…
So…yes, we do just want to be loved…and yes that’s completely ok….and
thank you Carrie and the Sex and the City girls for reminding us that we ARE normal…we AREN’T alone…and making us laugh our loud at our TV screens while you do it…
