1. It's okay to break up and make up

Being in a relationship is a lot of work. Even if you are together everyday or it's long distance. Sometimes the timing is not right if there is a lot of fighting and controversy going on in the relationship. Occasionally, you may need to break up in order for things to actually work out, as crazy as that seems. Breaking up usually is viewed as a bad thing, but a lot of the time, being apart only makes your feelings and realizations about each other even stronger.

2. You don't have the power to change everything

As much as we all want things to go our way and make us the happiest, life doesn't always works out like that. Sure, you will find things that make you the happiest but there will come times when you feel like nothing is going your way. You just have to focus on the happy and take into consideration that not everything will go your way all the time. There will be bumps in the road ahead, the long road ahead.

3. Your true friends are out there, you just have to find them

Theres no friendship like Serena & Blair. Even Chuck and Nate. Even all four of them together. Despite their constant battles and bickering trying to figure out their own lives, they are closer than anyone will ever be. Each of them put each other first before theirselves. It's hard to find true friends like that. True friends are not the ones who are there when it's convenient. True friends are there when it's not.

4. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY

The key to life is to stay true to who YOU ARE. Don't be like Jenny Humphrey and change who you are just to "fit in" or "be cool." No, you are cool just the way you are!! Be yourself because that's what makes you amazing. While wearing nice clothes, adding some more makeup and playing the rebel may seem fun for a while, one thing Gossip Girl does show us all is that popularity is shallow and can never replace real friendship and family.

5. Swallow your pride and apologize. Be the bigger person no matter how hard it is.

As hard as it may seem, just apologize. Being civil with someone is worth so much more than living regret. You may be missing out on big opportunities just because you are still upset and frustrated with that person. Just reach out, and be that big and better person.

Thanks to Gossip Girl, Ive learned....

Don't make decisions when you're angry, don't make promises when you're happy.

Remember you’ll always regret what you didn’t do rather than what you did.

Time is the one thing you never get back.


Listen.

Keep moving forward.

You'll make it.

You can't control what others think of you.

It's okay to need help.Lies will always be found out.

If you're meant to be with someone. It will happen.


You know you love me.

XOXO,

Gossip Girl
