Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been on the air since 2007. The hit show has spawned a bunch of spin-offs, a lot of drama and wait for it... life lessons? Whether people want to admit it or not they have welcomed the Kardashian/Jenner Klan into their homes either through the show, the media, or social media. By doing this we have all learned a lesson or two about what not to do, or what to go for in life. There are so many people in this family there has to be at least one that you can admire, okay maybe not go as far as to say admire, but one who is slightly appealing to you.
Their interests are so vast; Kourtney is a health nut, a mom of three and always looking for organic, healthy ways to enhance her life. Khloe has been working on her physique and trying to live a mentally healthy life, and Kim, well she has so much going on that it is hard for even her to keep up. Because this family's business is all over the television and in the media, we have learned quite a few things from their many, many mistakes; like, do not film yourself getting it on, you do not always need to take a picture of everything, or when your man cheats, give him a chance and chance again until you simply cannot take it anymore. The Kardashians, while full of mistakes, have done some great things in life that we can all learn a thing or two from. Here is a list of some simple life lessons we have learned so far from America’s most hated family.
18 It's Okay To Cry
The Kardashians are really not afraid to get emotional and shed a few tears (as we have seen them do so many times before). Let's face it-- life is hard and sometimes you just need a good cry. Kim is famous for her "ugly cry face" but this does not stop her from showing her emotional side. A lot of their hardships are shown on their television show, so whether they want to be seen crying or not, it is happening.
17 No Pain, No Gain
When it comes to beauty and looking their best, the Kardashians are not afraid to try new things. One time in particular Kim got up the guts to try something called a vampire facial by famed Miami doctor Dr. Julio Gallo. The facial involved having her blood drawn and then deposited by tiny needles into her face. It is supposed to give you a more youthful, vibrant look. Kim was in a lot of pain but her skin looks great.
16 Sharing Is Caring
You can never have too much of one outfit. Kim and her sisters are constantly buying doubles of the same outfit because they love it so much they know they can benefit from having it in another color. They have multiple bodysuits from Kanye West's clothing line, they also usually buy the same outfits and wear them to separate red carpet events. This also makes it easier to share.
15 Food Is Not The Enemy
The entire Jenner/Kardashian Klan have pretty amazing physiques, although, they work out like crazy (note the constant gym selfies). However, they also know that it is hard to pass up a good taco, burger, shake or anything indulgent. Kim famously had a taco bell obsession during and after her pregnancy with North and admits regularly that she loves, loves, loves junk food, especially churros.
14 No Man Is Worth It
Khloe, Kim and especially Kourtney, have had some crazy highs and extreme lows when it comes to men. Unfortunately for them it usually plays out on television and in the media but fortunately for us, it plays out on television and opens them up to a lot of severe judgment.
13 Follow Your Dreams
Old home videos will show you that Kim Kardashian was always the kind of person who liked attention, and wanted to have some level of fame whether in fashion, music or anything she could really perfect. She has clearly found it as she knows how to network and perfect the usage of social media to keep her celebrity status in the A list.
12 Laughter Is The Best Medicine
This family laughs at a lot of the outrageous stuff that they do; one of the more memorable moments is when Kourtney showed up to dinner after visiting the dentist. She could barely move her mouth and struggled to eat anything so that was clearly a better time than ever to video her struggles. While she was basically unable to eat and felt uncomfortable, she just had to laugh it off.
11 Never Stop Learning
The reason why the Kardashians are so successful is not only reliant on their business savvy mama, but it also has to do with the fact that they are constantly learning. Education does not only come in the form of post secondary schooling; when the girls venture into a new business they are hands on and walk though every step. Khloe wrote and edited her book, Kim was so involved with the development of her app she practically made it herself (of course she did not actually make it herself) and Kourtney wanted a healthier lifestyle for her children and herself, so she wrapped herself up in learning how to make it possible.
10 Dress To Impress
Have you ever seen the Kardashians leave their homes looking questionable? Doubt it. You may not always love their looks but they know how to rock it. Their outfits may seem outrageous sometimes but admit it, you would love a reason to dress like them.
9 Social Media Is Important
The Kardashian/Jenner clan are wizards at social media; they know how to take the best selfies, they have a bunch of followers, they are supportive of great causes and they even get paid to promote random items like detox teas and waist trainers. If you know someone who is more social media savvy, please speak up. These ladies know how important it is to connect with their fans on a personal level; it has clearly worked out greatly for them.
8 You Are Never Too Old
After her very public break up with Bruce Jenner, Kris found love again with a younger guy. It is always a challenge to keep things spicy in a relationship... and it looks like she perfected sexting as a way to keep her guy interested. She was called out on Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s by Scott for sexting with her new man.
7 Don’t Take Crap From Anyone
The Kardashians always have to defend who they are; the media is good at constantly putting out a mixture of fake and true stories for our own entertainment, so you never really know what is true and what is not. However, this family is not afraid to distinguish the good from the bad and more so, they are not afraid to tell someone to “shut up” when they are attempting to spread rumours. Kris famously did this when Perez Hilton Tweeted that she did not support Bruce’s transition.
6 Family Is Everything
Like every family, the Kardashians bicker, full blown fight and throw low key shade at one another but they always come together when need be. Take for example Rob Kardashian's new found love life; it was just a few months ago he refused to leave his house, but now he is enthralled in a relationship with Blac Chyna and while he has thrown some seriously awful shade at his sisters and mother, they still support him 100% no matter what.
5 Practice, Practice, Practice
Almost everything in life is hard to master, including the selfie. It has taken the Kardashian girls years to perfect the one-take selfie and every now and again, even they have to do a few re-takes. Selfies are some of the most unflattering photos if you do not know how to angle the camera correctly, and it may seem shallow to want to take the perfect picture, but it is a skill, right?
4 Love Your Body
All the Kardashian girls are very body positive; they should be, seeing as they are constantly shamed for showing their own bodies. Kim and Kourtney are notorious for baring it all during their pregnancies and Khloe has recently experienced a new found love for her body, so she is no stranger to participating in a risky photo shoot.
3 You Can Do It Yourself
The art of contouring has been around for years but let’s be honest, the Kardashians have made it extremely popular. Contouring can make you look like an entirely different person; even a “butterface” could look amazing after some contouring classes. You want to know why all the Kardashians and number of other celebs look amazing in photos and never seem to age? It is called contouring.
2 Haters Gonna Hate
No one gets more hate than the Kardashian family; there is no dispute there. You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t when it comes to this group. No matter how cute their kids are, how much money they donate to charity, or how many hardships they've had to endure through the public eye; they have to sit back and take crap from people.
1 Know When To Say No
Back in 2008, the youngest Kardashian sister, Khloe, had to do a short stint in jail for a DUI. Of course her entire family was there to support her little slip up. However, the real life lesson comes from what Kim did during this time; she took selfies during the entire car ride in hopes that one would be worthy of her Twitter and Facebook posts (Instagram was not around yet). Momager Kris had to aptly remind Kim that this was NOT the time or place for a (perfect) selfie.
Lesson: A selfie session is not a requirement for every occasion; in fact, sometimes it is very, very inappropriate. Know when to put the phone away.
