Five Life Lessons ‘The Last Jedi’ Taught Us

Published

on

Movies have a tendency to unintentionally give us some great life advice. The entire Star Wars franchise has provided us lessons over years, touching on everything from the strength of family to the virtues of patience — and of course, how annoying sand can be. 2017’s The Last Jedi was a film filled with inspiration at every angle. Here are a few things we’ve managed to learn from this major blockbuster.

The Memory Remains

Before Luke vanished, he left Princess Leia with five strong words: “No one’s ever really gone.” Whenever someone dies, it always leaves us with a sinking feeling, and an empty hole where our friend or family member used to be. What doesn’t leave us, however, are the memories and work they’ve left behind. Keep those things close to your heart.

Think It Through

When Rey chooses to pursuit Ben Solo, Luke tells her, “This is not going to go the way you think.” Many times, we have a situation planned out in our heads with a surefire way to succeed. In almost every occurrence, the overall outcome is completely different that what we expected.

Learning To Fail

Yoda has delivered some amazing one liners in the past. “The greatest teacher, failure is” may be his most powerful one yet. If you shy away from doing something because of fear of failure, you’ve already lost. Being able to learn and grow from your mistakes will make you a better person.

Love Conquers All

Towards the end, Finn was willing to sacrifice his life until Rose saved the day with her speeder. When he asked Rose why she stopped him, she stated, “That’s how we’re going to win. Not fighting what we hate. Saving what we love.” Instead of pointless online arguments, transfer that energy into promoting something you appreciate.

Keep Hope Alive

“Hope is like the sun. If you only believe it when you see it you’ll never make it through the night,” stated Vice Admiral Haldo. Many people tend to give on things when it looks hopeless. While the situation might be grim, there’s still a shed of light in the distance.
