How I Met Your Mother will always have a special place in my heart❤️
Something I've always loved about the show is that in a weird way, I’ve always thought that HIMYM is the adult version of Full House, in that it can teach you relevant, important, & relatable life lessons at the end of almost every episode.
The show in & of itself is generally a father giving life advice to his children, but as a young adult, you yourself are going through very similar experiences that the characters are going through. And having that quality makes you feel as though you aren’t alone, shows you that everything will be okay, but also does it in realistic way that, to me, doesn’t feel too sappy or overdramatic. It just feels real & relatable.
And if you think the lessons that the show teaches might not be important to you, you’re probably going to relate to it in the future if you haven’t already, or it could be important to someone else.
As an example: I was going through a different situation years ago & something told me to rewatch a specific DVD of the show, & I happened upon an episode in which one of the characters was going through a very similar situation that I was going through. It really resonated with me & taught me a very important lesson I needed to learn at that point in my life. I ended up watching that episode on a loop for days & it definitely helped me through my situation & overcome it.
For those that have seen the show, you might recall the duck/rabbit episode, which can make you realize that there are different ways of looking at situations; it's a lesson that I never forgot. I could go into more detail but Instagram has a character limit.
Of course, you can learn lessons from many different & relatable tv shows, because at the end of the day it all depends on your perception of things, & I’m not saying that I guarantee than this show will have huge impact on your life, because everyone’s different. But there’s no denying that How I Met Your Mother is such a meaningful sitcom, & that’s what makes it unique. And when you combine that quality with the amazing story & characters, you can’t help but develop an emotional connection to them & the show.🙌🏼
