    17 Vital Life Lessons "Scooby-Doo" Taught Me

    It's so much more than a cartoon.

    1. True friends will help get you out of trouble.

    Especially if a scary monster is chasing you.

    2. Face your fears head-on.

    Don't let them control your life.

    3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing glasses.

    It's actually pretty sexy, tbh.

    4. NEVER split up. Ever.

    It just doesn't end well, okay? Teamwork > Solo work.

    5. Laugh often.

    It's good for the soul.

    6. Don't hate yourself for eating, even if it's junk food.

    You're a human; you're supposed to eat. Give yourself a break.

    7. Not all of your family sucks.

    Scooby-Doo has Scooby-Dum for a kick-ass cousin. Focus on the family members you love being around, not the other ones. (Lookin' at you, Scrappy!)

    8. Don't be content with being bored.

    The world's full of exciting things to experience. Go out and do them!

    9. Dance like you can't be tamed.

    Even if you're a crappy dancer. Who cares, really?

    10. People are going to make fun of you, so you might as well accept it.

    Laugh along with them.

    11. Make do with what you have.

    Improvise a little.

    12. Let your crush know you like him or her.

    Don't wait for him or her to make the move. YOU do it.

    13. Let your talents shine.

    Don't keep them hidden.

    14. Don't let petty distractions throw you off your groove.

    Took me like 10 years to get that joke, Cartoon Network...

    15. Humans are the real monsters.

    16. Sometimes, the best friends you ever made were when you were a kid.

    And if you're really lucky, they're still your best friends as an adult.

    17. And lastly, just because someone is different from you doesn't make him or her "weird."

    Accept everyone for who they are.
