I love Pitch Perfect. I learned the Cups song the next day after seeing the move in theaters and had literally been counting down the days until I had HBO to re-watch it. And my favorite part of the move? Fat Amy.
Fat Amy is the tits.
Now don’t get me wrong Becca is pretty great too, but Fat Amy has this “Screw you all I’ma be me” attitude that I think is needed more in the world. Especially in the dating world. Too many a time we lose our best friends to a more subservient “boys can’t know I fart!” type of person. They lose their identities in order to become what the other person wants.
I can write that because I’ve done it.
But Fat Amy? She’s honest. If she doesn’t want you she compares getting together with you to doing crystal meth – and not in a good way. She’s upfront about what she wants and when she wants it. She’s proud of what she looks like and doesn’t give a damn about what people think she sounds like. She knows she’s awesome. Why does anyone else need to agree?
So the point here? You need to be like her. We all need to be a little more like Fat Amy. Start being confident in how awesome you already are every day. Stop pretending to like things you really don’t and don’t apologize for doing the things you do like. Take a stand for yourself and see what things you can accomplish. Fat Amy doesn’t compromise who she is and neither should you. (Unless you are named Fat Patricia – then by all means, change your name to Fat Amy.)
Get it girl!
