We can't seem to get enough of her.
Despite those woman who can't seem to stand Carrie Bradshaw in the least bit, she's more like us than we think. If you're able to look past her shopping obsession and love for drinking, she's your typical woman looking for love.
As a writer, I completely understand why Carrie wrote out her thoughts and her feelings. Sometimes writing is the perfect outlet when you have no one who's willing to listen to your problems. Although Carrie probably thought her words weren't getting through to others, her quotes about love definitely resonated with me -- and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure they spoke to you as well.
Carrie Bradshaw wanted love, but she didn't want just any kind of love. She wanted that kind of love that kept you up at night wondering if that person as thinking about you just as much as you were thinking about them. She wanted that love that Mary J. sang about. That love that only actions could speak about. The kind of love we all want, but seldom get.
Often times we get so caught up in falling for a person that we forget all about ourselves. While consumed with the idea of loving or being in love with someone else who we think may just be compatible, we forget to take the time out and love ourselves first and foremost.
It's okay to enjoy the single life and dibble and dabble until you come across that perfect one. That's what the single life is all about -- enjoying yourself and having a good time before cupid snatches you up. Once you find that person, than you can focus your all of your attention on each other.
Leave it to Carrie to be the one to get us all in our feelings.
I know I'm not the only one feeling rather sappy after reading those quotes. It's okay, you can let it all out. We've all been there at some point or another.
