Glee, the singing sitcom the swept the nation. It was on for six years and was a hit from the first season. In season 4, some of the main characters head off to college. This includes two main one’s Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel.
Rachel originally is the only one down there. Before she left her fiance dumped her and she was forced to go to New York all alone. There her roommate and her didn’t hit it off so well- relatable. So one night while her roommate is hooking up with some guy she meets this guy Brody in the bathroom. There she instantly falls for him. They bond over skincare routines. He is the first person to show her any type of compassion and she desperately wants someone to not feel alone. Brody takes this as his chance to find a girl.
Though she realizes this isn’t enough. She calls her best friend, Kurt. She tells him how alone she feels. That she can’t do it alone, that everyone that can go wrong in her life is going wrong. Kurt tells Rachel to turn around and he is there. Rachel and Kurt then get an apartment and Rachel’s life changes from bad to good overnight. She has her best friend and a guy. She is happy and changes her mindset to where she can do it.
To sum this up there are a few lessons learned that are very personal and relatable to me. One, is you need a person. You need someone to share your highs and lows. Someone who helps you get through the pain and will cheer you on. Two, it’s scary to move away from all you know. Though, if you do it with someone it’s a little less. This being said your best friend might not move states to join you so you might have to explore a little. Go out, meet new people, put yourself out there and you might find your person- I need to take my own advice.
Three, it doesn’t matter if your social group is small. What matters is that you’re happy. Four, never forget the people who shape you. These people may hurt you or help you, but they all play a factor in who you will become. Lastly, when you feel at your worst realize it can only get better. Yes, you are in pain, and you’re allowed to feel the pain. But, know that it’s up to you to grow and not be at your bottom anymore. People will come and people will go. So it is up to you to figure your next move. Hold yourself accountable and be true to who you are. With that anything is possible. So never stop believing.
