10 Most True AF Moments from Sex and the City

The girls from Sex and the City (SATC) are some of the best characters in television history because they show how strong friendships can have such a positive role in anyone’s life. Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha and Carrie all have unique ways of expressing how they feel and take on different viewpoints about their lives. But, one thing that they all have in common is their consistent support and love for each other.

There are many moments in SATC that were significant to each character’s personal development, but some of these moments also really hit home for those who may have been watching at home. Thus, I have decided to highlight a couple to inspire and encourage you, no matter what season of life you may be experiencing.

1) Don’t be afraid to start over

When relationships fall apart or you choose to let someone go, don’t feel ashamed to break down and fall apart. But, one thing you should always remember is that one day you are going to be okay.

2) Choose your friends wisely

This is so true! Make the choice to surround yourself with genuinely encouraging and supportive people who love you for who you are. When you do, not only will this choice fulfill your soul, but it will also attract others just like you.

3) Be proud of your success

Get it girl. Enjoy your hard work and success. Don’t let anyone take that away from you. You shouldn't have to feel insecure or guilty for your success, no matter what people or society may think. Make sure to keep those friends around that are proud and supportive of all that you achieve in life.

4) Know your boundaries  

One of the most important things to learn in a relationship (romantic or platonic) is what your boundaries are and to not be afraid to make them known. Dig deep and discover what you’re okay with and what you’re not. Stick to it, and know when enough is enough.

5) Don’t listen to the haters

Trust yourself and listen to your intuition. Decide who in your life you trust and has your best interests at heart. When you do, you can faze out all the haters and not listen to whatever they have to say. Don’t give a f**k, just like Samantha.

6) Don’t judge… just accept

None of us are perfect, and although it can be hard not to judge, we need to accept each other for who we are. Since we are all doomed to make mistakes, why be a critical, judgey friend when you can be an encouraging one?

7) You will get hurt—let them go

This is bound to happen. Some people are meant to come into our lives for a season to teach us a lesson or two and make us stronger, while others stay in our lives for much longer. But, don’t let fear get in the way and stop you from meeting new people. You will never know unless you try, so don’t stop yourself from meeting the good ones.

8) Love yourself first

This should be everyone’s life motto. Always love yourself first and foremost. Without that, you will never feel full in a relationship. Put self-love and care first on your list because if you don’t love yourself, you won’t be able to love your partner in the best way possible. Always remember your inner value and what you deserve.

9) Find value in yourself and don’t settle

You know what? It’s probably true. Although it can be tough to realize how much more love you put into a relationship than what you got in return, you should be proud of being your authentic self and loving without limitations. Don’t let that part of yourself go because one day someone will come along and love you back just as hard.

10) Always appreciate true love

It really is hard to find people who love you unconditionally, despite your faults. Sometimes it may feel like an uphill battle, full of disappointments and continual new beginnings. But, don’t lose hope. Continue to pour into other people’s lives and be yourself. It’s better to have a few friends that love you for who you are than many friends who don’t know who you are.

Those are only a few of the truest moments of Sex and the City, although the list doesn't have to end here. Why don’t you watch it for yourself, you may be surprised at what you learn.
