One Valuable Lesson we can Take from the Holiday Rom-Com, "Love Hard"

The Netflix original holiday rom-com, Love Hard, follows an LA writer, Natalie, who has had a hard time finding love. In fact, her career is based on her negative dating experiences. After a series of frustrating experiences, a friend expands her dating app's search area to encompass the entire nation. Eventually, she meets someone with an engaging profile and they hit it off immediately. They talk for hours on end and he eventually says that he wish Natalie could be there for Christmas.

Natalie's friend urges her to travel across the country to meet Josh, a man she's been talking to online. Although Emily is her boss and wants content for her disastrous dating column, Natalie decides to go anyway. But when she finally meets Josh, he doesn't look like his pictures...

The Best Lesson to Take from Love Hard

One drawback of the movie is that it romanticizes catfishing, but the best lesson we can take away is that it’s important to not care about what others might think– especially when it comes to pursuing what makes you happy. Josh never told his father about his candle-making business because he was afraid of rejection. But when Natalie encouraged him to take the plunge, he found out that his father was extremely proud and supportive of him. It can be easy to focus too much on what other people think, but if you let that stop you from pursuing your happiness, then it will never happen. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to take risks and try something new.
