If you're a fan of "Gilmore Girls," you can always count on Lorelai and Rory to remind you that being a girl is a beautiful thing. They pick you up when your down, and prove that life isn't always easy, but that's OK. Below lies a scratch-the-surface list of all the reasons you can deeply relate to the Gilmore girls and why you consider yourself blessed that this is true.
1. The… whole coffee thing.
The Gilmore girls were overloading on caffeine on a daily basis before it was cool. So naturally, of my fellow hardcore coffee drinkers can relate to the Gilmore girls on an all-too-personal level every time they speak of coffee as if it's, well, the marvelous thing that is coffee. It might seem that they're constantly drinking it at inopportune times, like at breakfast, lunch and dinner, instead of lunch and dinner, at night, in the middle of the night when they can't sleep, and every moment in between, but that's normal. Come to think of it, I've never actually seen them drink water…
2. They always remain true to their individuality.
Rory and Lorelai Gilmore are the queens of individuality. While watching them on-screen, it's easy to feel your own individuality reinforced, as they let theirs shine without hesitance. The Gilmore girls are quirky in the best ways, and although not everyone understands them, they understand each other, and because that's enough for them, it's enough for us.
3. They can rock that food-mood better than the rest of us.
I'm sure that all of us wish we were blessed with the metabolism of a Gilmore. Even though we all wish we could eat like Lorelai and Rory all the time without consequence, their passion for kicking back captures the inner child we all still channel from time to time. They remind us that, sometimes, there's nothing better than having a movie night and ordering both pizzas, because you and your best friend deserve it.
4. They know what it’s like to love and have their hearts broken, but they don’t give up.
Although the Gilmore girls have a seemingly effortless life in Stars Hollow being surrounded by loved ones and friends, they aren't exempt from the harsh realities of life, and this includes being hurt by people they love. As the Gilmore girls experience love, along with the good and the bad that comes with it, they learn that sometimes all you can do with a broken heart is feel it until it's ready to be put together again.
5. They aren't shy to mistakes.
The lives of the Gilmore girls are definitely not ones void of mistakes, though they always see the bigger picture when it comes to learning from them. They show us that it's more than OK to make mistakes and that mistakes have the power to make you a better person.
