I always wondered why the most beautiful things in the world are those which can easily destroy us. It’s like we are addicted to the danger that we can sense when we are close to them. I found myself dancing outside in the rain in the middle of a storm and I didn’t care if I was struck by lightning or if the wind would blow me away. Another time I found myself holding my hand over the flames of a candle, just because I wanted to feel the pain. When I was younger I imagined to be every superhero I saw on TV. I even tried to fly once and broke my arm on that day without even thinking about the risks I would take. Why are we so fascinated of danger? What makes us always fall in love with someone we know will break our heart? Why are we willing to risk everything only to lose again and again? I guess it’s just something that lies deep within us. Something that we aren’t able to get rid of. Nature.
It isn’t supposed to be easy in life. To be honest, are the most wonderful things are the ones you have to fight for, even if everyone tries to convince you that you are making the wrong decision. I learn from quiet different things in life, it really depends on how they catch my attention. This right here is what I learned from watching the tv show “Gilmore Girls” while I grew up. The relationship between Rory and Jess was the most beautiful and meaningful one in the whole show. They don’t have to be your favorite couple for my statement to be true – I will show you why.
Jess had a huge impact on Rorys life: He taught her to express herself and showed her that there are more important things in life than school. That she can be more than the shy girl who always follows the rules. That true love can be painful but worth it. He lured her out of her comfort zone, because if we are honest than that’s exactly what helps us grow. He showed her the difficult sides of life and how to overcome them. He made her stronger.
But because of Rory, Jess changed over the course of time too. He started to believe in himself and in the things he could achieve in life. He opened his heart for her and through all the ups and downs, he was always a constant in her life. He learned that love is not only painful and that it isn’t a bad thing to show people that you care about them. That you aren’t supposed to waste your intelligence and that it’s important to have goals in life.
They complimented each other so well just because they were so different. Even though they had similar interests, they still had completely different personalities. Over the course of time they always fought for each other – they never gave up. And that’s exactly what I learned from them: The most wonderful things in life are the hardest to achieve but at the same time they are also the ones it’s worth fighting for.
