As I watch One Tree Hill for the second time, I am reminded of why I fell in love with this show. The friendships, hardships, and life lessons each taught me something important about my own life and the people in it.
If you’re a fan like me, then you will know why Brooke Davis is my favorite character. From being head cheerleader, class president, and finally owning her own clothing line, she has never backed down from a challenge. She is independent, strong, and a whole lot of sass! Throughout the series, we have seen her struggle with real-life problems that many of us face. A broken heart. Fights with your best friend. Not feeling like you’re enough.
I don’t know about you, but I can see a little bit of myself in her character. I am a sophomore in college and still find myself struggling with those same things. Not having a clue what to do when it comes to boys. Picking stupid fights with my friends and family. Never feeling good enough.
Brooke Davis is a reminder to me and every college girl that you are enough. Here are some of my favorite messages that B Davis shared that I've taken with me through college.
1. Never let a boy define you.
2. Never compromise your self-respect
3. It's okay to not be okay.
4. Friendships are worth fighting for.
5. Don't let labels define you.
6. Know your self-worth.
And, always remember...
