We’re 100% crying.
After four seasons, Disney Channel aired it’s final episode of Liv and Maddie this past Friday. For the show’s star, Dove Cameron, it was definitely a bittersweet moment. Dove was only seventeen when the show aired and changed her life forever! To commemorate how special the show was to her, Dove shared a touching photo of her TV family and wrote a heartfelt goodbye to her show. Check it out:
the finality of today is nothing short of overwhelming and extraordinary. the amount of gratitude, love and huge emotion that my heart carries and pumps through my entire body is not something i could have prepared for. i feel heavy, & released from silent, all at once. mostly lucky.
this show, and all of the memories and people that it brought into my life, was so much more than just a show for me. it is my family. my growth, my pain, my childhood, my self discovery, my loss, my success, my joy, my whole heart, my human. if you are lucky enough to find something, some place, some one or a few someones that bring out the light in you, the human in you…hold it close, hold it gently, and open your full, unguarded heart to it.
i am blessed. i have lived a more human and elevated life because of this show. i don’t deserve the love, the acceptance and the support that have been given to me, and i will dedicate my life to giving that same sensation and freedom to others who’s lives i am lucky enough to touch.
thank you, to disney channel for trusting me with the insane opporunity and delicate challenge of playing two identical twin sisters as only one actress, and for pushing me to (what i thought were) my limits and beyond. especially you, Gary. but you know.
thank you, live and maddie, for saving me and for so generously holding the space for me to become the human that i am. you were gentle and nurturing to a complex and intense girl, and you shielded me until i could stand on my own. you are the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and i do not feel worthy.
as far as speaking to that thing that we all know we can never be put into words: we know. and we always will.
good bye live and maddie. you have my heart.
