Alongside the iconic fashion of Buffy Summers, the hit show taught many a lot more than you’d think. Of course, the show taught women how to kick ass, but also more sombre lessons.
Here are 5 life lessons learnt from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH ALONE
After Buffy and Angel break up, she worries that she’s not strong enough to face the horrors of the world. Buffy manages to face them as well as the newly ruthless Angel. It just goes go show that you are always strong enough to face your demons.
YOU CAN’T CHOOSE WHO YOU LOVE
Buffy ends up falling for two vampires, despite her being a hunter. Xander and Cordelia fall in love despite being polar opposites. You can’t choose who you love, but you can choose how you love them.
YOU CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS
Buffy’s dad is a jerk, so she has no father figure. Giles becomes her family as well as Xander and Lilly. After he mother’s death, they become her only family. It goes to show that you can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends.
THERE ARE ALWAYS MORE CHANCES
Buffy failed many times, but showed that failure wasn’t the end. She had help from her friends and tried again until she succeeded.
WHEN IN DOUBT, SING!
So it might have been forced by a demon, but singing allowed everyone to express their emotions. Sometimes you can’t just say it out loud, but you can in song.
