The six characters coming from different backgrounds with different mindsets, occupations, interests, and philosophies, coexist in the most fun way ever.
1) “Never care about what others think.”
Run like Phoebe, eat like Joey, speak like Chandler, care like Ross, clean like Monica and dress up like Rachel! Never care what others say about you. Keep hustling and prove everyone wrong with your wit and determination.
Ever thought why Phoebe was such a happy person? Because she actually never cared about what others were thinking! This is probably one of the best things about her character in the show.
2) “Everything happens for a reason.”
If it weren’t for Monica breaking up with Richard, she would not have found the love of her life in Chandler. Their relationship was magical and meaningful. This teaches us that no matter how bad a situation is, it will always lead to something amazing. So, take a leap of faith once in a while.
3) “Stop being shallow.”
Take the six lead characters and you can easily notice that none of the six characters are perfect. From the socially awkward, Chandler to the domineering, Monica; they all have their flaws.
Yet they stick with each other through the ups and downs of life. Look beyond the imperfections of a person. Give everyone a chance and they might surprise you.
4) “Find your Passion.”
No matter, how high paying your job is, if it is not satisfying, it is not worth it. Rachel couldn’t work as a waitress for long. Similarly, Chandler wasn’t happy doing “statistical analysis and data reconfiguration”, even though it was a high paying job! You have got to find your passion to be happy!
5) “It’s okay to be SILLY.”
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. taught us that having fun and being silly need not be something you need to shun after you become old and mature. It’s great to goof around and pull each others’ legs every now and then.
All philosophical it may sound, you should never kill the child in you. Keep everything simple and keep having fun!
This brilliant show not only thoroughly entertained us but, taught us about so many important things, important feelings and important decisions in life.
No wonder, this series is known as the best of all times.
