I learned of Lena Dunham due to the controversy surrounding her book. Controversy is a good thing, it got me interested in her show and her book. The show "Girls" is not my kind of thing so after three episodes I stopped watching. The book, which was given to me as a gift, I have enjoyed. It has taken me five months to finish it. I would come across something and have to think on it for a very long time. This book is an interesting piece of ramblings put together. To put my thoughts together for it, I thought I would share some of the pieces that had me reflecting for a while before I could move on.
I can do related to this sense of playing a character. It's very much like my Living a Fraudulent Life post, I lived lies until I believed those lies and now is the slow healing from the damage my lies caused.
This paragraph is in relation to her sister and while my sister is not gay (quite the opposite actually), I can really relate. In the past 8 months I have reconnected with my sister and this is very much how I have felt. Lena Dunham just put it allot more eloquently than I ever could.
And lastly, the dynamics of relearning how to have a relationship with my parents. To look at every serious conversation whether it ends good or bad, it's good to know we can come out stronger than before. Because that last line is true.
Have you read Lena Dunham's book? If so what are your thoughts?? If you haven't, is it something that would interest you and what are your thoughts on what I've shared??
