Soul Mates

I don’t know if any of you out there are Sex in the City fans. I never was a fan until I started watching the ‘edited’ versions of the show AFTER they went off the air. It’s not that I wasn’t a fan of the show when it was on air, but it was more that I didn’t have access to it! It was an HBO commodity, which I wasn’t privileged to have access to. Ah well …

Nevertheless, as I’m sure you already know, the ‘big screen’ version of the show came out a few years back – and the second film came a few years later. I was ecstatic to see them both. Perhaps you’re frowning at the mention of the show, or, you’re an enthusiast like myself, but I was asked by a friend the other day, why I like the show so much.

There are many misconceptions about the show and while some just might be true, there are quite a few positive aspects to it as well.

Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte, are much more than fashionistas. Sure, they live lives that many of us could only dream of, but they also carry something much deeper than the materialism that surrounds them in the ‘Big City’: the bond of friendship.

The show, and the film, showcases the friendship of these four women, and the struggles they share. They’re devoted to each other, through the ups and downs that life so many times, brings to each of us. They’ll fly across the country for a friend in need, and not only do they rejoice in one another’s victories, but they also share in the sorrow and disappointments of life – and sometimes, the unbearable pain of life’s sometimes, viscous blows.

They forgive and forget, love when it hurts, and encourage the beauty in each other, even in their most dire moments.

So, a fan or not, the bond of friendship these four women share, sure is something to hope for, if not fight for!

“No matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you’ll never get through it without your friends.”

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with.”

Here’s to girlfriends. Our soul mates. The ones you’ve had for years – the ones you’ve just met – and the ones that you have yet to meet.
