9 'Friendly' Reminders For 2018 That Will Make You A Happier Person, As Told By 'Friends'


Whatever your New Year's Resolution may be, these reminders are ones we should all remember to live by daily. Who better to take life advice from than Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler and Monica?

1. Make jokes, be sarcastic and laugh at yourself.

Life is way too short to be so serious.

2. Don't let "adulting" be a negative thing, make the most of it.

Sure paying bills and going to work everyday sucks, but the rest of our adult lives don't have to.

3. Let go of the past, and don't let regret consume you.

Stressing over the past won't change anything, so just let it go and allow yourself to move on.

4. Surround yourself with people who matter.

And only people who matter. I promise it makes a difference.

5. Be straightforward and fight for what you believe in.

Never back down from what you believe is right, even if it means stepping on a few toes along the way.

6. Always say YES to trying new things.

Except drugs, of course.

7. Be honest with yourself and everyone around you.

Honesty is the best policy, in every situation. Even the ones where it seems like a good idea to lie.

8. Never give up, even when things get tough.

Nobody ever said life was fair, and nobody ever said it would be easy. Don't let that stop you.

9. Believe that you ARE good enough, and embrace who you are.

We are our own worst critics, but if we don't believe in ourselves then nobody else ever will. Be the change.

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.
