The show Friends came out in the 1990’s, however to this day it is very relevant and still holds a lot of viewers. Each character on the show has taught us important life lessons which we should abide by.


  1. Phoebe: Not to Care

Throughout the entire series of Friends, Phoebe has walked around doing her thing, not caring what other people think of her.

Ross has had a lot of weddings and on-off relationships on the show, having a baby, saying the wrong name at the altar but in the end, Rachel and Ross were endgame! With love, Ross didn’t give up but kept pursuing his heart and stayed true to who he loved.

Rachel has changed the most since the first episode. She went from being a spoiled rich girl to finally working, not knowing how to make coffee and got her dream job in Paris. Even though she didn’t take it, she never let anyone stop her from pursuing fashion and achieving her dream.
