21 Pieces Of Advice From "Gilmore Girls"
Distractify

"Gilmore Girls" is one of those shows that really pulls you in and drags you along for the ride. You get very attached to the characters and emotionally invested in the relationships. Your heart breaks when someone leaves the show, but not as much as it does when the show ends and you realize that they're never coming back. But the most heartbreaking thing is when a show as relatable and close to your heart with such beloved characters as this comes to an end.

I have just recently finished watching every episode of "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, and I couldn't be more devastated that it's over. I have also just recently found out about the upcoming four 90-minute-episode revival that is coming to Netflix (I don't know when it will be coming out, but I sure hope it's soon)! So in anticipation of the revival, here is a list of some advice the show has bestowed upon dedicated viewers over the years.


1. It is not an obsession. It is a lifestyle. It is a religion.


2. Sometimes it's good to avoid problematic situations when possible. But it's not always possible to avoid them.

3. And just because you don't like something doesn't mean you can run away from it. You have to face it head on.


4. At the heart of it all, we really all just want the same thing.

6. It is OK, and even necessary, to wallow for a while after you get your heart broken.


7. And this is the best way to wallow.

8. We all need someone who can make us laugh, even when we don't feel like laughing.


9. Sometimes we start to like certain things as an act of rebellion against someone who dislikes the thing.

10. We all need someone that will love us always, unconditionally. Someone who will support us in our decisions, even if they go against everything we've been planning our whole lives.

11. Just because you feel an attraction does not mean that you have to act upon it.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F22%2F6360482199943212641766403803_datepie.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=405&h=10c99e268cc567cf99faa3a7acc01b3eca21e94f5db9f2d611ccf8907e15ad6d&size=980x&c=256843674 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F22%252F6360482199943212641766403803_datepie.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D405%26h%3D10c99e268cc567cf99faa3a7acc01b3eca21e94f5db9f2d611ccf8907e15ad6d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D256843674%22%7D" expand=1]

14. Don't waste your life doing everything safe and by the books. You've got to take some risks every once in a while. If you don't take any risks, you're not really living.

15. Take that leap of faith.


16. No matter how old you get, it is OK to need your mommy sometimes.


17. Matters of the heart will always inevitably turn your brain into mush.

18. Faster isn't always better. Especially when you can do something productive while you wait.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F22%2F636048238545386646219398087_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=86&h=0c913eb78cc06c638882586a01d25d0bbc7d9e0ad02c130292666cae47b3defa&size=980x&c=413264147 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F22%252F636048238545386646219398087_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D86%26h%3D0c913eb78cc06c638882586a01d25d0bbc7d9e0ad02c130292666cae47b3defa%26size%3D980x%26c%3D413264147%22%7D" expand=1]


19. We can't always help who or what we love.

20. No guy is worth throwing your life away for. Unless, of course, he has a motorcycle.
