I honestly don't want to be that bitter woman. The woman who can't let go and is always broken hearted.
I'm about to be super vulnerable and open and I'm completely nervous about it.
I literally shed a tear watching the finale. It was so hopeful and everything that most 20something women dream of. Being happy with the guy they love. But it's not realistic and I hated it. I'm tired of the scripted writing where deep down the guy you love will come to his senses and love you back. I'm tired of that image being constantly drilled into my head and subconscious. Why am I so tired? Because it's not real! It doesn't happen. No matter what difficult situation you may be in, he doesn't come to the rescue. He doesn't care about your hurt or pain or insecurities. He doesn't forgive or ask for forgiveness. We paint these pictures of what love is supposed to be and how it's supposed to feel when in reality it doesn't feel that way. It's a huge let down. A constant let down. People don't love like that. That's only what we imagine love to be. People don't care that much that they really and truly follow their heart rather than being so difficult and allowing themselves to just be. People don't care that much.
Show the pain of someone not picking up. Someone who you're in love with telling you that they don't want to be with you. Show the accepting stage. Show the moving on slowly. The let down. Show what really happens and not what's going to keep the viewers.
Show me so I won't be so shocked the next time it happens. So that I'd know what to expect and how to deal.
The most realistic part of the episode had to be Jessa. What I'd give to run away and turn my phone off.
