Have You Gone Through Similar Experiences as the Characters?

Addiction, sexuality, and mental health are all stigmatized issues in society. So, it is a surprisingly brave step how Euphoria shows the importance of talking about these topics in our lives.

Although some of us may think that we’re disconnected from the characters’ experiences, others see a reflection of their life in the show. Watching the series encourages people to start serious conversations with their loved ones. On top of that, we also learn the value of empathy for people who go through the same thing. 

So, make sure to be kind to yourself and to others. Remember that your bad experiences don’t define who you are. Keep working on yourself and enjoy life!

Hi, I’m Karen, a content curator and writer for Quote Ambition; I’m also a marketing and advertising professional. Beyond the keyboard and the screen, I’m someone who’s out to enjoy every bit that life has to offer!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
