"Pretty Little Liars" is, in my opinion, a fun program to watch. I like the elements of suspense, mystery, and drama that it contains. The show is full of secrets, evil plans, and, of course, a multitude of lies. However, despite the show’s dark plot, it has some pretty good advice laced within the dramatic dialogues. Listed below are a few examples of this.

1. Gossip is not okay. Spreading rumors about people and sharing stories that aren’t yours to share are things you should not be doing. Gossip does nothing to improve your life, but it can negatively affect the lives of everyone it is focused on. There is no reason to hurt others so senselessly. If someone tells you a rumor, that doesn't mean you should spread it. Please keep that in mind and think before you speak.

2. Sometimes relationships are more trouble than they are worth. This can be applied to romantic relationships, friendships, and even familial relationships. If you feel like someone is constantly dragging you down, then it is not worth it to continue to let that happen. If you constantly have to hide behind lies and charades in order for your relationship to work, then perhaps it should be ended. Life is hard enough without adding complicated relationships to the mix. Keep the people who make your life better, and drop the ones who don't. It might seem mean, but at the end of the day you are responsible for your own happiness. If it is just too hard to make a relationship work, let it go. Yes, it might hurt in the moment , but in the end you will be better off for it.

3. The only thing you can control in this life is you. While it might be tempting to try to control the world around you, life doesn't work that way. Things are going to happen the way they are supposed to happen whether you like it or not. It is best to just accept life as it is, rather than desperately trying to change what can't be changed.

4. Sometimes the people that you love don't love you back. It can even seem like some people are incapable of love or don't understand it. That is an unfortunate part of life, but it happens. You have every right to feel what you feel, but you have to understand that the other person has that same right. If they don't love you, or if they can't love anyone at all, that is not your fault or your responsibility. Just pick yourself up and move on. That is all you can do.

5. Siblings are supposed to protect one another. All brothers and sisters fight sometimes, but that doesn't mean they don't love one another. Keeping one another safe from harm is in their job description as a sibling. That means standing up for each other, defending each other, and caring for them when no one else will.

6. Everyone screws up sometimes. Mistakes happen, and when they do it is best to just accept them. Being upset is not going to make the problem go away. Your feelings are always valid, but sometimes they need to be controlled. You can be disappointed that a mistake took place while still accepting that it did. Try to just shrug it off. You can try harder next time.

7. If you feel the need to boldly stomp out of a meeting, classroom, or party, make sure there is a reason for it. Sure, it might feel nice to have all eyes on you as you make your grand exit. However, without a reason for the theatrics, all you are doing is being dramatic. Plus, if you leave a meeting that way, there's a chance you could get fired. You might not really want the outcome you are creating. Think before you do something drastic. You might just thank yourself later.

8. You don't need permission to love someone. Other people might not be the greatest fans of your relationship, but that doesn't matter. As long as you are safe, happy , and taken care of, other people's comments shouldn't matter. Let yourself be happy, even if it angers others. Their reactions are not your problem. You know your relationship better than anyone else, so trust that. You can't always choose who you love, but you can choose how to react to other people's opinions. If you are in a mentally, verbally, physically, or spiritually abusive relationship, none of this applies. For the rest of us, however, we deserve happiness.
