F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Lessons from the TV show.
We all remember that 90s show that we all loved so much. Friends taught us all so much about life and love. Each character has a unique personality that we can relate to in some way. The Friends characters taught us so many things growing up and now you can use these life lessons in college as you prepare for your own future.
The Rachel: Rachel is the character that is little bit lost at first. She lives off of her parent’s credit cards. Rachel is looking to restart her life and so she gets a job and works her way up doing something she loves. Rachel is a good example of how you can make it in life without relying on your parents for everything.
The Joey: You might think you are not smart enough or you just don’t get it sometimes. Joey is this character. He is a womanizer, but he makes the most out of life. He is a struggling actor but is always a positive character. Joey teaches us that we should always be happy in life even if we are having a hard time.
The Phoebe: This character is a free spirit who seems to enjoy life at every moment. She grew up on the streets without a mother and she has still managed to be successful and pretty normal. She is a masseuse who likes to sing quirky made-up songs. Phoebe is a great example of how no matter what our circumstances are when we were younger, we can still make our life to be better in our futures.
The Ross: Ross is the character who went to college and is really smart. He has his doctorate and works at the Museum of Natural History. He is known as kind of a geek but is now extremely successful. Ross gives inspiration to other nerdy kids who think that being popular is more important than being smart. You can look to Ross as an example of someone who worked hard in school. It pays off.
The Chandler: He is the funny guy of the group. He has one of the most boring jobs ever and he decides to quit and do something else he will enjoy more. For those of you thinking about changing your major follow Chandler’s example. Do something you love so you don’t have to worry about changing your career later in life. Chandler is also known for having bad luck with relationships but he ends up marrying Monica. For all the guys out there that don’t think they have a shot with a girl, just go for it. You never know what might happen.
The Monica: She is a little bit neurotic but she is known as the mother hen of the group. She has motherly qualities that keep the group together. Monica has certain goals and she never loses sight of them. She was picked on as a kid because of her weight but she turned it around and eventually becomes a chef, and a mother. She is really determined to accomplish all of her goals.
If you remember watching Friends, you should appreciate all of the characters. Surprisingly, they teach us some really great lessons that can help us get through hard times whether it’s in school, or just life in general.
