Rick and Morty was initially a satire of the film Back to the Future. When Adult Swim asked Harmon to turn this into a series, he and Roiland chose to foster a show based on the short, while making a couple of changes. It's premiered its fifth season on Netflix recently and has a huge cult following. The series has more than a few nuggets of advice for all of us:-

1.The world doesn't revolve around you

We would all be able to deduce this on watching Rick and Morty because we live in a gigantic universe brimming with different planets and systems and lifeforms. When it's all said and done, we are only a speck of dust within a galaxy. We are hardly anything. So don't treat life so seriously. Try not to worry about whether somebody cares for you or whether your life will come to a standstill if you don't meet a deadline. Supposing that you truly consider the big picture, it doesn't make any difference at all.

2. Don't judge a book by its cover

We can learn from Rick and Morty that individuals are not generally as they appear.

For instance, from the start, it appears as though Rick's former son-in-law, Jerry, is a sad, uninspired man. While it is true that Jerry is quite unlucky now and again, Rick is the person who battles with depression. Rick is by all accounts lighthearted and consistently up for adventures and fun. Be that as it may, Rick’s adventures show that he isn't apprehensive about death, yet on the off chance that you observe intently, you can notice the remarks he makes about ending his own life. So perhaps Rick needs more assistance than Jerry.

3. Family or work?

This is a lesson we gain from both Rick and his little girl Beth. For Rick's situation, he picked a vocation like science, over family and has regretted it ever since. He then committed his life and work to attempt to fix this horrible misstep. For Beth's situation, she picked family over vocation and continually contemplated whether she settled on the right decision. She battles with the way that she's not a human doctor and settled as a vet. However, when she saw her alternate reality, the one where she picked her vocation rather than her family, she, at last, understood the decision she made.

4. Be prepared for an adventure day in and day out

Rick has his issues, however, there is certainly something to be learned from him.

Rick is always prepared for an adventure. Whether that experience is assisting Morty with serenading a woman or arranging a party, Rick is prepared and down for whatever life tosses at him. He likewise assists Morty with unwinding and having a good time.

5. Live a bit, love a lot more

From every one of the characters on Rick and Morty, we can learn that occasionally you simply need to live. Escape your usual range of familiarity, accomplish something insane, attempt new things, smile a ton, have some good times and above all, let your loved ones know you care about them. Tell your folks you love them, embrace your kids, make the effort to stay in contact with your companions. You can't carry on with life alone. We as a society need individuals to love and be loved. (Also, individuals to laugh with, or at!)

6. Never trust anybody (particularly people you're related to)

Rick Sanchez is excessively protective and unimaginably distrustful. Nearly everybody on Rick and Morty has demonstrated they can't be trusted, either purposefully or because they wind up accomplishing something that almost gets them as well as the whole human race killed. In case you're going to live in this world, you must keep your guard up consistently.

7. There are two kinds of people

Rick and Morty have taught us that many people don't know what they're doing, and those who do are insane lab rats who couldn't care less about anything past themselves. In any case, it's smarter to avoid them as much as possible.

8. It's always the worst thing possible

Here's the main thing Rick and Morty fans can learn: Nothing goes the way it's supposed to on this show. Ever. One reason it's so entertaining is the way things go wild.

Either because individuals around you are meddling with you or because you're playing with powers outside your ability of control. What's more, you would be wise to be prepared when they don't go your way.

To sum up, this entire show is truly a learning curve. Yet, that is the thing that makes it so uncontrollably amusing, because you wouldn't see half of what's on Rick and Morty on some other TV show. It takes everything to a higher level and we're all the more here for it.
