Desperate Housewives
by Kirsten Cross
If you`ve watched the show, you`re aware of the adventures of the residents of Wisteria Lane. The characters in this comedy drama quickly become embroiled in each others` lives while trying to keep dark and often funny secrets to themselves, and it often seems that their exploits are too far-fetched to be real – but could you already be leading the life of a Desperate Housewife without even knowing it?

Perhaps the Housewives seem a far cry from yourself or your friends. Susan is a single mother with a penchant for drama and searching for love. Lynette has given up her high-pressure job to be a stay-at-home mom, only to discover that life at home is more demanding than in any office. Gabrielle is locked in an unhappy marriage and seeks illicit love with her gardener. Bree is the apparently perfect wife but behind closed doors is struggling save her failing marriage, and Edie is a serial divorcee who uses her sexuality as a weapon to get what she wants.

When you boil the characters down to their fundamentals, it is suddenly easy to see just how realistic they are. Indeed, you may even identify some of the characters with people you know – and even with aspects of your own life. If you do, don’t panic – this is perfectly normal! Producers would not commission a show that no one can relate to or they simply wouldn’t have any viewers. However, it is worth questioning what has happened to those characters and just how you identify with them.

What all the characters in this show have in common is that they are spiritually disjointed. They have become so concerned with the minutiae of their physical existence that they have isolated themselves on a psychic level. This can happen to anyone with surprising ease; stress, a secret, a relationship that isn’t working – all these things can conspire to make us ill at ease with ourselves. Secrets can become burdens, stress can seem insurmountable and relationships can seem too complicated to address. However, when we are spiritually in tune with ourselves, problems such as these appear as only minor hurdles. Intentionally or not, Desperate Housewives presents an accurate representation of how difficult and dramatic things can appear to be when you are feeling psychically isolated from those closest to you.

If there are any lessons to be drawn from this series, they surely must center on the importance of being in harmony with yourself and those around you on a level far higher than the physical plane we inhabit. With the everyday stresses and strains of life, it is too easy to lose perspective on situations and how to resolve them. It also easy to forget how restorative, both psychically and physically, the simple pleasures of life can be, such as a walk in the park or a cup of tea with a friend.

If you are identifying too heavily with one of the characters from this show, perhaps it is time to take stock of your life. Whether you are a housewife or not, you don’t have to be desperate.
