Top Lessons Learnt From F.R.I.E.N.D.S Movie

1To be yourself

To be yourself

F.R.I.E.N.D.S taught us to be just US. It doesn’t matter who thinks what about you, it is always best to be just you and FRIENDS TV show or movie taught that perfectly. There have been so many instances when the characters of F.R.I.E.N.D.S have done what they wanted to. Remember that moment when Pheobe changed her name to ‘Princess Consuela banana Hammock’? That is something we should try and remember even in our life. Just be yourself!

2Always define the relationship


Staying clear of a particular relationship is very important and F.R.I.E.N.D.S did teach us how to do it perfectly. The relationship was clear between each character and there was clarity in what each other meant to the others. There were no confusions on that. Whether it is ‘ROSS’s WE WERE ON A BREAK’ or ‘Pheobe’s love for a cat’, it was all clear and crisp. It is also quite important to bring that in real life. You might want to define every relationship you have.

3Dance like nobody is watching

Dance like nobody

This one can be fun! Have you ever danced crazy and not cared about what is happening around you or who is looking? Well, in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Chandler and Monica dance in respective situations and not care what happens around them! Try it out and you have no idea how much you would love that.

4You are always a kid at heart

a kid at heart

You are always a kid at heart! F.R.I.E.N.D.S’s entire series taught you just this. You and your friends can be as kid as possible, but wouldn’t show it out in the light. F.R.I.E.N.D.S  said, show it out! And you have no idea how much fun will crop out of this.

5Sometimes you just need a girl’s night out

It is true that you need a girl’s night out, no matter what! F.R.I.E.N.D.S shows it pretty well. From bitching, to pajama parties, to even life talks, your girls are the best to discuss with. So try and catch up with them once in a while to have a lot of talking and fun. Remember how many girl’s night out the three girls from F.R.I.E.N.D.S have done?

6Everyone has a lobster


Believe in this myth! Everyone has a lobster, literally everyone. Remember how Pheobe tells Ross that Rachel is his lobster? That is true in real life too. Believe that you have your lobster somewhere. Maybe you haven’t discovered him yet, but he is there somewhere!

7Sometimes your best friend is your soul mate

your soul mate

You just have to brush off the thoughts of soul mate being found in someone else. You never know who your soulmate is really! It can also be your best buddy who has seen you through your ups and downs! So ladies, if you guys are actually searching for your lobster and aren’t finding it, you may have one in your gang. Who knows!

8Beauty can be painful


Remember how Ross gets tanned 4 times his color? The time when Monica and Phoebe try waxeen? Well, yes, maybe it is painful to actually look great! You might as well look dumb than going through a torture ride? Wouldn’t you?

9Reality can suck sometimes

Reality can suck

Most of us never accept that reality sucks, but F.R.I.E.N.D.S will make you believe in this myth. Most of the times, your friends will be the eye opener and tell you that reality is just an overrated term. But, yes, it sucks to know that it is true

10Never be afraid to ask yourself questions

ask yourself questions

This is something that you should consider doing on a regular basis. Ask yourself questions and know the answers to it. If you don’t know the answers to the questions, always try and find help from your friends. Why else are they there for?

11Change can be difficult

Change can be difficult

Admit it, sometimes you just don’t like that things around you are changing. It is just sad that we don’t accept the very fact and keep blaming others. Things around you are changing? Then just try to accept it. F.R.I.E.N.D.S shows so many changes at the end of the 10th season. Chandler and Monica plan to move to the upper state, Rachel plans to leave to Paris, Pheobe gets married and what not!

12Honesty is the best policy

F.R.I.E.N.D.S has always taught us to be true to oneself and to others! Pheobe is the perfect example to this. She never lies so she isn’t scared of anything around her. Try being like her. Try to not lie to your friends and you will find bliss in it.

13Food is the best

Food is the best

This is one of the most easiest realizations! Food can just change everything. Mood, people, situations and habits. Remember how Joey says ‘Joey doesn’t share fooooood”? Well, be like him. Binge on your favorites and enjoy

14Never give up on Love

Never give up

End of the day, everything boils down to just this. Never give up on whom you love. Problems will come and go, fights will happen, breakups are a part of it but love remains. If you love a person and he gives his 100% back, do not hesitate to take it to the next step.

15Best friends are forever

Best friends

No matter what, they stay. You don’t have to tell them anything. They find out just like that. You wouldn’t even have to tell them there is a problem, they will just know it. What’s more is that, you don’t have to even tell them the basics like Sorry, thanks. Because they just get you! If F.R.I.E.N.D.S are not forever, who will be?
