After recently completing the ten season epic, "Friends", I can honestly say that you can learn anything you need to know about true friendship from this late 90s to early 2000s sitcom. If you haven’t watched it yet, I can tell you that you’re in for an emotional rollercoaster. And if you are one of the many who have watched it, I have an honest question for you, were Ross and Rachel on a break?

The truth about this show is that it is in fact an emotional roller coaster. Whether you're looking for a good cry or a good laugh, "Friends" will be there for you (pun intended).

Now, I am no expert, but I have assembled a list of the all-around best episodes of "Friends", some that will make you cry and some that will make you laugh.

The beautiful reality of the situation is that no matter the episode, you’ll probably be obnoxiously laughing one minute and then crying the next. It was incredibly challenging to pinpoint the best episodes in the series, in part due to the exceedingly long list of episodes and also in part due to the fact that they are all wonderful in different ways

In my opinion, this is the list with the most iconic episodes that true "Friends" fans would be able to quote forward and backward.

So for those of you who are "Friends" virgins, here is a cliff notes version of the series; get watching!

And for those of you who have seen the series, I hope that when you read this list, you are reciting all of the iconic catchphrases and reminiscing about all of the good times you had watching these episodes.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
