Lena Dunham, well-known director, screenwriter, and actor, took to her Instagram ahead of the new year and unveiled a lengthy, hearty message for the ones, who could survive 2020 despite its all negatives.
The ‘Girls‘ creator posted a photo of herself sitting in a chair, in front of a wall decoration with “2020 is over” and in a custom look, consisting of long socks, leather boots, and a black jacket. Alongside the photo, Dunham began her message by saying that she hates being sober on New Year’s Eve and continued:
“Hello, 2020 survivor babies. (…) I have spent way too many of them in bed with a form of pudding just praying for midnight to strike. On the contrary, I love year-end round ups, and the doozy that was 2020 for every sweet soul on earth really deserves a recap. We all know what went down, so here are some nuggets of knowledge I feel lucky to have learned the hard way and maybe you can use.”
Then the director started listing: She first wrote it is a must to accept that life will not look the way “our mothers, grandmothers, friends or ex-lovers thought it would or should.” And added another entry; people should speak and raise their voices even though they think that their voice is not central or useful, because silence is more deadly. She continued by talking about relationships:
“Solitude is different than loneliness. Companionship is different than togetherness. (…) We never stop being messy, but hopefully we find a way to focus the mess so that it no longer explodes into other people’s territory- it’s like being a good emotional roommate. Keep the common areas clean. Then go wild, kid.”
Dunham, who is also known as an ambitious activist for gender equality, also touched on women’s rights via her message:
“Just because you invited him over, it doesn’t mean you gotta smash. And just because you said you didn’t wanna smash, doesn’t mean you can’t do it later. The world is our oyster.”
The artist, who recently portrayed Valerie Solanas in ‘American Horror Story: Cult,’ concluded her message by saying that she really missed her fans and friends.
“I hope you end the year feeling so sure that you were born to do it, even if you aren’t sure exactly why. Forever your girl, Lena”
