GIRL MEETS THE BAY WINDOW
This emotional episode speaks of change. As we grow we all must change and grow up no matter how hard that may be. When addressing Maya’s fear of letting go of her “safe” place, Cory and Topanga gave some great advice, simply telling the group of friends that change is inevitable and will come whether we are ready or not, so embrace it and don’t get too comfortable with what is.
“The truth is people get comfortable with what’s familiar. And when you get too comfortable, you don’t allow yourself room to grow.” “The worst you can do is fold your arms and refuse to accept what’s supposed to come anyway.”
GIRL MEETS THE FORGIVENESS PROJECT This episode touched a lot of people in many ways. We learn through Maya the importance of forgivenss and forgiving people in our lives, but most importantly the act of forgiving ourselves.
GIRL MEETS RILEYTOWN This powerful episode covered the widely known topic of cyber bullying. It also taught that when bullied you should go to an adult figure and tell your friends because they will always be there for you.
Though we are only halfway through this season Girl Meets World the writers and cast are delivering incredible episodes.
