Carrie Bradshaw is an icon among hopeless romantics, shoe addicts and city girls alike. Her relatable wisdom can be a guide for all sorts of people, whether we're finding love, we're single or we're committed for life. Her quotes can guide us.
Here are the 5 most important Carrie Bradshaw quotes about love.
We never really know what people are going through. Even if their relationship seems picture perfect on the outside, they could still be struggling. Don't judge or try and hurt others, especially when they're dealing with relationship issues. Just be there to support, and help if needed.
We often follow our minds instead of our hearts because we think it's the right thing to do, but when we're dealing with a relationship all bets are off. Sometimes you can't fight fate. The heart makes itself known when it wants something, and at times, the best thing you can do is follow it.
We may feel alone in our weirdness, but we can't stop being ourselves to please others. Someone will come along that shares your interest and your weirdness. Just keep looking, never settle, and never be with someone who doesn't love the real you, because what's the point if you're not being real?
This quote might be the most famous of all, because it's true. Most of us are looking for the real thing, and we have problems because we run into people who aren't what they seem. We settle for the people that are easy, or fun, but never last. If we admit to ourselves that the chase is about something very real and very consuming, then we're one step closer to actually finding it. Knowing what you want is a huge part of finding someone to be with.
No, this one is the most famous! And the most important. We can't love someone else if we don't love and appreciate ourselves. We have to understand that we are worth it. A good relationship takes time, and we must be willing to spend time on ourselves too. Putting too much energy into someone else can be draining, and it can hurt you. As Samantha Jones said, "I love you, but I love me more."
