“Sometimes I feel like Robin from How I Met Your Mother,” is what my best friend exclaimed to me over the phone during one of our routinely long conversations. It was one of those ridiculous moments of clarity wrapped in a cheesy analogy with a sitcom character. Yet, I could relate so unbelievably well to that statement.
The character Robin Scherbatsky is a fiercely independent woman; a career-minded journalist who had never been in love when we are first introduced to her. There are a whole host of other things about Robin that I can’t relate to but those things above are what caused our “aha!” moment.
