Important Life Lessons We’ve Learnt From Watching The Kardashians For 10 Years
Are they actually our guardian angels?
When the Kardashians walked into our lives, we were forever changed.
How? Because a massive portion of our time was now dedicated to watching KUWTK or scrolling through their Instagram feeds when we could have been doing something way more productive.
Yet there’s no denying the family have taught us some really important lessons in life over the last ten years, from being proud of your body to throwing a daaaamn good party...
1. HAVE AN UGLY CRY WHEN YOU NEED TO
And even turn your ugly cry face into a business venture of Kimojis.
2. DON’T TAKE YOURSELF (AND LIFE) TOO SERIOUSLY
You can’t deny that the family have so much fun and they’re hilarious people who know what they want but also don’t take themselves too seriously. Like the time when Kylie Jenner laughed at the new big lips filter, saying: “Are you making fun of me Snapchat?” LOL.
3. DANCE LIKE NOBODY IS WATCHING
Exhibit A: Kris and Bruce having the time of their lives on a boat.
4. LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
Kim’s short marriage to Kris Humphries is the perfect example of listening and following your heart as she revealed she knew just days in the honeymoon that their marriage was doomed. Only we know what is best for ourselves and we have to follow our hearts. Profound advice, we know.
5. BE OPEN TO EXPANDING YOUR VOCABULARY
Like, saying like between every sentence and like, saying ‘Bible’ around 50 times a day now… like.
6. THROW A DAMN GOOD PARTY AT ANY OPPORTUNITY
Say what you want about the Kardashians, they throw some EPIC parties. From Moana-themed shindigs to Fourth of July themes, just looking through their Instagrams and Snapchats will give you party inspo for life.
7. BE PROUD OF YOUR BODY NO MATTER WHAT
The Kardashians love showing off their bodies and if that’s what they want to do, good for them! Kim posted a pregnancy photo on Instagram when she was pregnant with Saint, encouraging everyone that all bodies are beautiful and slamming those who dare criticise.
She wrote: "Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I've learned to love my body at every stage! I'm going to get even bigger & that's beautiful too!" Well said, Kim.
8. YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYBODY, SO DON'T WORRY
The Kardashians are the perfect example of a family who don’t let people hating them stop them from doing their thing and for that, we respect them. Let the haters hate and just do you.
9. EVERYONE HAS BAGGAGE
Ok, so the Kardashians may have Louis Vuitton baggage but they do have A LOT of baggage. Watching one of the most famous families in the world and realising that they still go through the same issues as you, you feel better.
10. NEVER BE AFRAID OF TRYING NEW THINGS
You’re never too old to try a new hobby or get good at something. Khloe took acting classes, Kourt dabbled in interior designa and the girls even took self-defence lessons after their store was robbed. Then, after Prince kicked Kim off-stage for not dancing at his concert, she went for some professional choreography lessons.
It might not be your thing, or it could become a lifelong passion. Hey, Kendall even got a catwalk coach when she became interested in modeling, and look how that turned out…
11. SOMETIMES IT’S THE WRONG MOMENT TO TAKE A SELFIE
Just know when to stop, yeah?
12. SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY THROUGH THICK AND THIN
Kim’s armed robbery in Paris, Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick going into rehab, Khloé’s former husband Lamar Odom’s drug overdose, Kris’ ex-husband Bruce transitioning into Caitlyn – they’ve gone through it all. Life can get pretty tough but if you’re a ride or die unit, you’ll get through it much easier than on your own. Bible.
13. KEEP IT REAL
Sometimes they just need someone to bring their crazy life crash back down to reality, like the time Kim went crazy after losing her earring in the ocean and Kourtney replied: “Kim, there are people dying.” Wise af.
14. WEAR A SEATBELT
Kim learnt that lesson herself when their car skidded over black ice and landed into a ditch with Khloe, Kylie and baby North in the car. While everyone else was buckled in, Kim was not. They were ridiculously lucky they weren’t badly hurt but it was a lesson for everyone to take away.
15. SOMETIMES BRAVE IS TOO BRAVE WHEN IT COMES TO FASHION
Erm, we're voting no on this tinfoil get up.
16. DON’T BE ASHAMED OF SPEAKING UP
The Kardashians bravely show their vulnerabilities, and that it’s not shameful to voice how you truly feel and seek help and advice when you need it.
Everything they’ve gone through, they will talk through it and even film every emotion for us to see and it’s pretty great to know that we don't need to go through life bottling everything up.
17. YOU ARE YOUR OWN PERSONAL BRAND, OWN IT
If you want to be social media savvy, take a leaf out of their book if you want to up your insta game. There’s no denying that the Kardashians are marketing geniuses, stat.
