Obsessive disorder? I don’t think so.

I always wonder how I give good advises. Trust me I do and almost always the right ones. Before getting to the message, let me reveal something about me.

I watch a lot of TV series; especially crime, detective type ones or fighting for what’s right or to save people. And when I say I watch, I just don’t stop after I finish a season. I rewatch it again and again. Only the worthy ones of course. Like, The Mentalist, Castle, Rizzoli and Isles, Teen Wolf. You get the picture.

I have gotten way too many comments on this habit of mine and I never really explained anyone why I do this. Not even to my best friend. So I am going to atlast reveal why I have this habit of rewatching series often.

I have fallen a lot in my life. Lots of pain that I had to go through. By family as well as my love life. I kept choosing the wrong person it was because of family issues which I realized it later. But everytime I fall, of course I had my best friend to pick me up. But how much would she help me? Even if she helps me to get through a tunnel, it is I who needs to walk all the way and get to the other side of the tunnel.

It’s you who have to do it. It’s you who have to walk through that tunnel. Your best friend helped you lay out a map, gave you strength and support. But you need to have the courage to get to the other side. Fight. And yes, tv series helps me, because I am not obsessed with it blindly by having crush on the actors but being obsessive about the message that it delivers. That’s how I learn. I take in all the good stuff. Here are few.

  • Fight and keep going no matter what.
  • Have faith that you can win. Believe in you.
  • Be optimistic. Although I always list out or think of all the negative outcomes before thinking of the positive ones. This prepares me for the worst. Trust me.
  • Trust your gut instincts. You will never go wrong.
  • Do not share your personal stuff with anyone but the ones whom you trust with your life. You might regret one day if you share to anyone else.
  • You get to live your life once. So live it your way. Don’t care what others might judge because they always will no matter what you do.
  • You can fall in love more than once. Don’t lose hope if things don’t work out.
  • Learn to live independently – on your own.
  • Pain is inevitable. Embrace it and wear it like a crown.
  • Do not let anyone control your life. You are it’s ruler and only you get to control it.

Yes, I learned all these life lessons out of my experience and the tv series I watch. I won’t call rewatching my favorite shows obsessive or stupid. Its me teaching myself that “I matter” and the strength to live my life.
So hope this answers the question of me being obsessive about rewatching stuffs and also helps the ones in need to hear.
