Most of us grew up watching the cartoon Courage and the Cowardly Dog, and while it did not make as much sense then, it certainly is very relatable for people now. There is something about this show that makes us all want to learn lessons from it, and so we decided to write down five lessons that we have or should learn from Courage the Cowardly Dog. The irony that is in the name cannot be missed.
Life is weird
This has to be the first one because life is truly weird. There are things about life that cannot be explained. And when those things happen, we can’t help but be sad and have this feeling of anxiety pooling in our hearts and minds. But Courage the Cowardly Dog has taught us that no matter what happens, no matter the circumstances we encounter in our lives, we must put on a brave face and just do it. Face life head-on, and let the chips fall where they may.
You must do whatever you can for the ones you love
This has to be the biggest lesson that we have learned from this cartoon because we all know how his father treated him. We mean, the mother was nice and kind and considerate because mothers usually are, but his father was never kind to him. However, this never got in the way of Courage saving both, and he did all he could for his father, beshak end per uskou gallian hi sunay kou milein.
Fear isn’t a bad thing
Humans are mortal beings who tend to get scared very easily, aur phir jab dar lagta hai tou dil karta hai kay sab hath paier chor kar beth jaien. But why? Fear is never a bad thing. Mainly because when we fear something, it only means that we have something important or precious to lose and that we must do everything in our power to make sure that we keep it protected.
Sometimes you have to conquer your fears
When we fear something, it is perceived as a sign. Maybe it is God testing us or life making sure that we grow to our full potential. In times, when we fear something so deeply that it shakes the core of our being, we have to get up and face that fear head-on. Courage, the cowardly dog used to do the same. He used to face that fear, and we must all do so as well.
You are more capable than you realize
Courage’s mother always used to tell him that he could do it. It is as simple as that. Whenever things got bad, courage, with the motivation from his mother, would go out and fight all the monsters. He was scared, yes but he had it in him to rise above the occasion. And if he could do it, so can we.
Cartoons tend to teach us a lot, whether we like it or not. We get to learn the basics of life, and how to live it. These things are often incorporated into our unconscious mind, and we don’t even know it. We realize that when the time comes, we have no option but to face life as it is. And to all these cartoons, we thank them for the lessons that they have taught us.
