I Could Use A Hand

The episode of love on the rocks from the well-liked television show full house is about how D.J. is Feeling that her relationship with Steve has drifted apart, DJ explores all other options, before ultimately breaking up with him. Steve goes off to Hollywood for a school trip. While D.J. is stuck at home watching her cousins and trying to figure out if she still wants to be with Steve. D.J. decides that she does not want to wait at home for Steve to get home. D.J. goes out with her best friend Kimmy mountain climbing. D.J. was really scared to climb the mountain. But once she faced her fear she learned there is more than life then just being with Steve. The whole week that Steve was gone D.J. keep busy. After forgetting the day Steve got back home D.J. then decided that it is time to break up with Steve. She asks Danny her dad what his advice is. She explains to Steve that she wants to break up. She tells Steve “breaking up is like climbing a mountain it’s really scary until you do it then it is incredible.”

D.J learned a lot about herself the entire week Steve was gone. As humans we are scared to take risk. We hate change. But once we take the first step towards that change we are usually happy we took that step. It is also a lot easier to make that first step with a supportive friend or family member. That way we know we’re not going on this new adventure by our self.

By taking a risk and having a supportive family can leave a person with a positive outcome. D.J. learns to give up the want for a boyfriend to find out who she is and what she likes. D.J. also learns from her family mistakes. Also she has an open mind to trying new thing even thought she is very afraid to try it. But once she tries it she thinks it is incredible.

Word of wisdom: pain is easier to handle when you go through it with another person

Two quotes I always like - one by Churchill, "When you are going through Hell, keep going!", and the second is "When you are green you grow, when you are ripe you rot!" (Unknown). Thanks for your post!

I like what you're trying to do here, Stephanie, in that you are summarizing a TV show and then tying it to your page theme. I would like to see more after the summary, though. Could you talk a little bit about how you or others you know have had similar "D.J." moments?
