Insights from Issa Rae’s ‘Insecure’

The Importance of Healthy Love Stories

In a world where romantic fantasy overwhelms, Insecure underlines the truth of accepting the process of love rather than romanticizing an idyllic, idolized ending.

From the series we learn that healthy love stories do look like breakups. They look like changed plans and minds. They can take shape as pauses, endings, rekindlings, and newfound beginnings.
