5 Lessons Friends Taught Me

One of the best shows of all time that taught me important lessons.

5 Lessons Friends Taught Me

There are 7 Erogenous Zones.


That episode where Monica taught Joey the 7 erogenous zones is one of my favorite scenes of friends. Up until then, I never knew that there were so many. And after learning what 7 was, I understood why Monica said it so many times.

Being on a Break is no excuse.


Ross constantly used the excuse “WE WERE ON A BREAK!!” to justify him sleeping with another woman and it was hilarious each time. Clearly, that was no excuse in Rachel’s eyes because they ended their great love affair from that very incident. So, lesson learned, “Don’t cheat on Rachel.” -Joey

Your true love is closer than you think.


Monica and Chandler are one of my favorite couples on FRIENDS. The whole show they always had a little something; they even made a marriage pact. She looked everywhere for love and even had a great one with Richard. I learned sometimes instead of searching, just look what has been there all along and you will find what you’ve been looking for.

What’s Done in the Dark Always Comes to the Light.


Monica and Chandler were in a secret relationship for the longest and honestly, it seemed as if no one would ever discover their secret. But once Joey found out, I knew it wasn’t going to be too long for the rest of the gang found out. Honestly, it did take a while for them to figure it out even after Joey found out. Long story short, you can’t keep a secret for long before everyone finds out what you’ve been hiding. Take Ross and Rachel for an example. They slept together and thought no one would find out until Rachel ended up pregnant with Emma.

Friends are really all you need.


Through all the ups and downs these guys and gals faced, one thing that stayed was them was friendship. The theme song serves their friendship justice because they were literally always there for each other. Even after Ross and Rachel broke up they remained friends. All of them support each other and their dreams. They support Joey’s acting career even though he wasn’t that great. They listened to Pheobe’s dreadful guitar playing songs and celebrated her hit “Smelly Cat” even though it sucked. Friends are sometimes all you’ve got and you need to cherish them and love them for who they are.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
