15 Life Lessons We Learned From "Rugrats," Because Those Babies Were Actually Pretty Wise
"Life is so hard, Tommy — sometimes I think it's the hardest thing there is."
Rugrats was the show of my childhood. I'll always remember getting up early on Saturday mornings with my sister to watch these little babies and their whacky adventures.
Looking back on this show as an adult, I've realized it's actually pretty deep at times! Here are 15 valuable life lessons from Rugrats:
It's the little things that keep you sane.
Love can make you feel a million different things.
Adulting is a necessary evil, unfortunately.
It's okay to prioritize your own needs.
The only way to thrive in this patriarchal world is to eat, breathe, drink, and sweat self-esteem.
Life is just hard sometimes — really hard.
It's not always worth stressing about the future — sometimes it's better to just enjoy the present.
Don't base your life expectations on the movies.
Family is family — but that doesn't mean you'll always like each other.
Not everything you worry about in the middle of the night is worth worrying about.
Self-care is very important.
There's nothing wrong with taking a little pride in your hard work.
A dog is a best friend you can count on for life.
Those we love never truly leave us.
And finally, no matter how old you get, you'll never fully feel like an adult.
