This Is Us is not entirely helpful.. I find myself crying thru almost every episode.. family does create such a strong impact in every personal development and watching a beautiful family who loves each other despite the many hurdles, issues, fights and trials make it all the more emotionally taxing. Seriously, from seeing the unconditional love of a parent to a child and vice versa, unspoken love between and among siblings, love for another person who is completely unrelated, love of 2 people that eventually builds a strong foundation of a home (a warm home), to getting the right kind of advice from a friend at the right time. All of which are told in many different stories but ultimately highlights that kindred human spirit of belongingness, connection, genuine affection and understanding for each other.. yes, simply, that four letter word, l-o-v-e… something that couldn’t be captured exactly well in words.. it goes above and beyond limiting definition. It can be found no matter the race or the circumstance and despite all the many other things that life can throw at it, it’s a reminder that we belong and that we matter to others, especially family and vice versa.
Got me feeling and realizing how I’m not even close to having something like it.
And that’s quite sad.
But this show.. is just darn too beautiful to miss.
