If you’ve seen even 5 minutes of 90210, the new series, you are well aware that this show is filled to the brim with drama. I started watching a few weeks ago and I have been sucked into this world of teenage love triangles- and there are a lot of love triangles. Its certainly a show that leaves you bewildered.. these teens may be crazy, but they are patient. And they are on to something. Here are a just a few things I’ve picked up from them along the way…
1. I’ve learned that the truth always comes out. I am the type of person that usually sticks up for myself on the spot. I don’t know if this is a bad habit or not. But based on the 90210 gang, rest assured that the truth will set you free!
2. I have learned that getting revenge is more trouble than it is worth. So let things go. If a friend betrayed you, it is not your job to publicly humiliate him or or. Let their choices decide their fate. Don’t let it tarnish your good character.
3. There IS more to dating than just looks. We’ve only seen this happen a few times on the show, but the sentiment holds true that these relationships are the happiest relationships… meaning the ones we cultivate out of characteristics and chemistry, rather than popularity rankings and pretty genetics.
4. Heartbreak. It is just part of the deal. If you’ve had your heart broken once, but somehow came back to life from the deep depths of agony, you know that it really does help you grow. I have had my heart broken a handful of times before, I feel empowered because of it. Sound crazy? Having your heart broken to any degree means that you have tried. It means that you let yourself be vulnerable to something bigger than you as an individual. The 90210 crew, however dramatic and unrealistic it may be, has the whole ‘let go and let love” thing down. I bet they all live happily ever after too. Bitches.
