If this TV show did not move you to tears at some point, trust me, dude, you need a doctor. It’s not just a TV show; it’s like your best friend. It was part of our lives, and it made our lives complete. The life of six friends, their friendship, their ups and downs, their emotions, how they deal with their troubles and lead their lives is what it is all about, and it cannot be shown better.
Every character and every episode has taught us something, and it has always been there for us when we needed company. When you have problems in life, what do you do? Do you remember what Rachel did when she had one, how Monica dealt with it, what Ross will do, how Chandler would panic, you wonder how Joey doesn’t care, and how Phoebe will make the ultimate decision?
Here are some of the lessons we learned from them:
It is okay not to share your food:
No matter what, there is always a Janice who wants you! And if she loves you truly, you can always give that relationship a chance! And if it doesn’t workout, you will eventually meet someone, but you are never truly ‘forever alone’.
Some relationships would be perfect, but it has to end. Just like Monica and Richard, Rachel and Tom, sometimes it won’t work out but that doesn’t mean that’s the end. You will meet the one for you eventually!
Real Friends will accept you for who you are:
We all come across bad times, remember that we can handle them:
Laugh at your mistakes:
You don’t need a perfect life to celebrate it. A good day is an excellent reason to celebrate your life. Mark every single detail of your life just the way Phoebe does. Yes, she didn’t have the childhood most of the kids have, but that didn’t stop her from celebrating her life. In fact, that made her observe and appreciate all little good things in her life. 🙂
The more you love a person, the more will be the pain when they hurt you. It’s up to you to decide whether that person is worth it or not. When Rachel broke up with Ross or when Joey decided to move to a different house it wasn’t easy, but that’s how life goes, and we have to deal with it.
Remember the number of auditions Joey had to take up before becoming Dr Drake Ramoray? Or when Chandler had to quit his job to pursue his career in advertising ( he was a transponder) or Ross becoming a paleontologist due to his obsession with dinosaurs as a child. They all did what it takes to get the job they love but remember this as well; work is not always important.
When your best friend is struggling, please do whatever you can to make them feel better because you are truly one of the few people who can make them feel better about themselves. Support them when in need like Chandler does to Joey or Monica did to Rachel. Hug it out and tell them that you will be there for them.
