HBO's hit series Girls, which was just renewed for a third season, has been characterized as being all-too realistic and I, for one, couldn't agree more.

The four leading ladies of the show echo today's everywoman and offer up a heaping dose of relatable woes on topics ranging from boys to finances.

Similar to Sex and the City in that everyone can relate to the characters as they navigate their way through singledom and their blossoming (at best) careers in New York City.

So what has the Golden Globe-winning series taught me? Endless life lessons to say the least.

Whether Lena Dunham's character, Hannah, is butchering a break-up speech to her on-again-off-again boyfriend Adam (Adam Driver), or Shoshana (Zosia Mamet) is battling virginity jitters, the ladies of Girls recreate nostalgic life moments that really hit home.

The gut-wrenching scenes of Marnie (Allison Williams) walking right into a minefield of ex-boyfriends leaves me not only sympathetic, but reminded of exactly what not to do. And who could forget the free-spirited Jessa (Jemima Kirke)? I am both envious and weary of her newfound love and blink-and-you'd-miss-it marriage – reminding us that sometimes cupid's arrow hits you hard and it's possible to fall for a stranger.

Whatever trouble our favorite characters find themselves in, fear not. The bond between the twenty-somethings is unbreakable and so is my love for all things Girls.

From facing your fears to having your BFF's back, Dunham's standout show is filled to the brim with lessons I won't soon forget.

Girls airs Sundays at 9PM on HBO.
