‘Mai Apni favorite hoon!’ This dialogue is enough to watch Jab We Met for the thousandth time. Even after 15 years, the life lessons from Geet remain to be invaluable. Geet’s dance in the rain, her boldness to face people, and her self-love remain unforgettable to date.
We realize our self-worth in the ocean of feelings from “Aaj tak life mein ek train nahi chhuti meri” to “Aisa lag raha tha ki koi train choot hi ho.”
From taking bold decisions for your life, “Kal ko main Kisi ko blame nahi krna chahti ki tumhari wajah se meri zindagi kharab ho gayi'”. “Meri life mei jo bhi hoga, Mujhe pata hai meri wajah se hoga”, Geet taught us to live up to our instincts. Here are some important life lessons by Geet that still remain invaluable.
Life Lessons By Geet From Jab We Met
That Still Remain Invaluable
Self-love is True Love
When Geet said, “Main Apni Favourite Hoon!” she imparted a message of loving oneself before others. Putting yourself first and loving yourself to the fullest is important. Because if you don’t, who will?
Follow Your Heart
May it be dancing on the street while it rains or jumping into cold water, do what your heart says. It may seem crazy to others but if it makes you happy, go for it. Follow your heart and have fun. Life is short, and each moment must be enjoyed to the fullest.
Make Decisions on Your Own
Geet is the in-charge of her life. She makes her own decisions. The decisions may be impulsive sometimes, but at least they’re her own.
Stand Up For Yourself and Oppose Sexism
Stand up for yourself, oppose sexism, and don’t be afraid to preach to elders if they say something sexist. It’s not easy to stand up against others but we must know how to fight for ourselves.
Trust Your Instincts
Do what you feel is right. Trust your instinct. It has the power of leading you to happiness and peace.
Find Your Own Happy Ending
Geet chooses Aditya over Anshuman because she thinks he’s the one for her. She decides what’s best for her and chooses the man she truly loves. She doesn’t care about people’s opinions. That’s how Geet finds her own happy ending.
Your Family Will Always Have Your Back
You might mess up, make terrible mistakes and hesitate to go back to your family, but your family will never give up on you. Come what may, it’ll support you through the worst, welcome you home, and take care of you. Your family will always have your back and love you unconditionally.
