brizzle Posted August 6, 2008 Share Posted August 6, 2008 This is probably just for the ladies, but who knows! The current ex I still love with all my heart has been my off and on boyfriend for years. We love eachother very much, I believe, but it's just not the right time to be together right now. For a long time I've been watching Sex and the City when I'm feeling down. It helps to know that Carrie has suffered heartbreak and gone on bad dates and through out all of it, she ends up with the man her heart was truly for. But it also makes me realize that a person can love another person and have other relationships, and it doesn't mean that they love their soul mate any less...it just wasn't the right time. Now, personally, having lived a lot of what she has gone through, and having seen a lot of people go through what she has gone through, I feel like there is a lot of validity in the series... For me personally, it makes me feel a lot better in letting go and dating others (with a distant hope that the one will make his way back without me in his life). It shows that life does continue with or without that true mate, and you just have to keep going with it. It also helps me to see that staying in contact with that S.O sometimes isn't the best way to do things and that even if they are with someone else, it doesn't mean its the end. I find a lot of solace in watching it, myself. I was just wondering what others thoughts are on this: Some people say its bad - that it keeps you in a state of depression or false hope. Has it helped you through rough times? Just interested to see if anyone else finds comfort or not in the series that has become much like a best friend/visual bible of sorts. Link to comment
