Did These Quotes Help You Overcome Your Emotions?

Pain and sadness are things everyone experiences, and everyone feels hurt in different ways. This is clearly defined throughout the series. Though BoJack, the protagonist, felt that he alone was experiencing pain, he learned that others, too, can suffer and get hurt. It is through acknowledging these emotions that we get closer to our first step in overcoming challenges. Pain and sadness aren’t meant to be dealt with alone all the time. Sometimes, you just need to reach out to others that can pull you out of your misery.
