If we have learnt anything from life, it’s that TV isn’t reality. No one looks that beautiful in the morning or has a perfect apartment, but there are many lessons to be learnt.
Here are 5 things to learn from Gossip Girl.
FAMILY IS IMPORTANT
Gossip Girl proved that blood doesn’t necessarily mean that they are your family. Lily basically adopted Chuck and Dorota raised Blair. Without them, the characters would’ve struggled a lot. You can choose your family, and they’ll be there through thick and thin.
FRIENDS ARE THERE FOR YOU
Blair and Serena have been through a lot of ups and downs, but remain there for each other at the end of the day. True friends will never leave you and help you no matter what.
FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
No matter your dream, chase it! Vanessa makes her own film and Dan writes a book. Never settle for less than what you desire. Make your dreams a reality.
DON’T TRUST SOCIAL MEDIA
Gossip Girl is the core of the show, but don’t take that too seriously. If the characters ignored GG, then there would be less drama. Maybe ignore your own GG in life and you’ll be a lot happy.
Pretending to be someone else never works. Little J changed her entire outlook to fit in with the Upper East Side, and her life came unravelled. People respect you for being authentic, instead of pretending to be a phony.
