5 Lessons from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2



5 Lessons from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2

So last weekend, I binge-watched the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt—which I waited a whole year for (and now the waiting is on for season 3 ugh), and it did not disappoint. While I think Season 1 was funnier (just a bit), Season 2, for me, had more heart—and a couple of lessons have stuck. Here are some of them:

  1. It’s okay to know that you matter

Kimmy, as much as she’s a little ball of sunshine, could be such a pushover. In one episode, she was told by her psychologist (a role played by Tina Fey—who’s also producing the show, ICYDK, whom she met in an Uber!!!) that she has to start telling people about her needs—that she matters, and her needs are important, too. And sometimes, we have to be reminded of that, too!



  1. Sometimes, the people we love could be dumb…and it’s up to them to redeem themselves

Omygod. You know, I ship Kimmy and Dong sooooo hard but Dong was kind of a jerk to her this season…until he finally came to his senses. I do hope he’ll still be back in Season 3 or else…ugh


  1. “Sometimes, the only way to go is to go on”

One of my favorite episodes this season is that episode where Titus was so happy—but was so scared of it. You probably know how that feels. Sometimes, you feel so happy but then, you feel like, what could be next? Because if you’re so happy now, then, maybe, something bad might happen soon, right?

See, that’s what Titus was so scared of. And he was nitpicking his life—what’s “wrong” with it, etc. And then Lilian reminded him that sometimes, you just have to “go on”. Watch it, it’s the fifth episode and it’s soooo good.




“We’ll never stop. We’ll just keep moving forward. Even though we don’t know what we’re moving towards. They say life’s too short, but they’re wrong. It’s so long. Sometimes the only way to go is to just go on.”

  1. Sometimes, you don’t belong where you think you do

Jacqueline, aka Mrs. Voorhees (Or VOORHERS, as Kimmy says lol) is in a constant path of trying to find herself. She even went back home—to her family—to do that. Then, she realized she’ll never be good enough for them.



Lesson learned: Sometimes, it’s hard to not have “anyone”. Believe me, I know. But you just gotta do what you gotta do. Whatever that means.

  1. And, it’s OKAY to care about money!

‘Nuff said.
