You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, ‘cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.
Actually, living in the South [where The Walking Dead is filmed] has been a great reminder of those things. It’s a place where people have a little bit more time for each other and their priorities, it’s almost like when you’re in California people are afraid to say they want to find a really wonderful man, who’s patient and wants children and will be a fantastic father and treat them really well.
Why would anyone ever shy from expressing that desire in their life? But, there can be a stigma against acknowledging that you need another person in your life. I’ve definitely felt the need to appear super strong and independent and that’s just not true. I don’t want to be independent. I want to rely on someone and have someone rely on me. Admitting that you want that is not weak and it’s not needy. It’s actually really beautiful.
