Did These Quotes Make You Value Good Morals Rather Than Popularity?

Popularity is great because it can increase your confidence. We all want that. But, don’t take the risk of hanging out with cruel people just to achieve fame because it’ll never be worth it.

Instead, you should desire to have truthful and caring friends because that’s the kind of friendship you can keep forever. We should be mindful of who we associate with to avoid betrayal in the future. After all, we can all agree that influential people don’t always show us their real motives—like some of the characters from Heathers.

As a person who has good morals, you should always choose to stand up for what is right, even with or without the influence of other people. You should not let others bend your rules, integrity, and principles.

So, keep in mind the lessons you’ve gotten from Heathers. Before you enter a friendship, you should know their intentions because friends are supposed to bring out the best in you, not the worst. Always act with kindness despite any tragedy that’ll come your way.
