Despite being an incredible film and a teen classic for tons of guys and girls, Mean Girls can actually teach us some surprising lessons. Although you might of never noticed these small messages, now you’ll have read them you’ll notice all those teen lessons and might even make some life adjustments. Here are those important lessons.
If Mean Girls has taught us anything, it is to definitely not judge others, especially from mistakes that they might have made in their past.
Everyone Makes Mistakes
Everybody makes mistakes and we should all try to be more forgiving of this. Mean Girls shows tons of mistakes made by different characters and how it affects them later, but forgiveness is often the best and quickest way to get past friendship drama.
Image Isn’t Eveything
Although it might seem like the most important thing in the world, especially in your teens it is important to remember that image is not the be all and end all. In fact as you grow older, image might be completely put on the back burner!
Don’t Let Others Distract You
Don’t let small distractions lead to regretting and suppressing your own talents and potential. Working hard is really important as well as having fun but try to find a fair balance.
Halloween Isn’t To Be Scary
Social laws read that once you’re a teen, Halloween no longer means dressing up as a scary ghost or Dracula. The rules completely change and dressing up as a zombie bride might not go down well.
Look At Everyone’s Beauty
Stop being so shallow, try to give everyone a chance without pre judging them and find their inner beauty. Everyone is beautiful in their own way but we often only judge this from exterior.
Things Can Quickly Change
Don’t take things for granted, you might be on top of the world one minute and hit by a bus the next… quite literally for Regina.
Don’t Back Stab
As much as you might be mad or caught up in a moment, try not to back stab others. This will always come round and get you in trouble or hurt others.
Stay loyal to those that are kind to you, even if they might not be considered ‘cool’ or ‘popular’.
Focus On Priorities
Find what your priorites are and try and keep a focus on them. Don’t mould yourself into someone completely different just to fit into someone you think people want you to be.
Lies Can Be Dangerous
Lying is never a good idea and even small white lies can escalate and turn into something far bigger than you ever intended, this is especially bad when it could be damaging to another person.
Stay Young As Long As Possible
Don’t be in a rush to grow up too fast and be an adult when you should be young and having fun. You’ll soon regret this when you are grown up.
Encourage Others To Succeed
Instead of climbing over people or knocking them, why not encourage people to succeed in things they’re good at or support them with things they want to do.
Don’t Be Defined By A Stereotype
Don’t let a stereotype that has been pinned on you define who you are or make you feel you have to live up to it. Be your own person and enjoy yourself.
Don’t Be Mean!
Ultimately, this movie teaches us to not be so mean to one another!! Girls are the worst at tearing each other down when we should be empowering one another.
