17 Lessons Spongebob Squarepants Taught Us About Life
The Best Way to Battle Cynicism is With Hope
Squidward may never change who he is or how he sees the world. He doesn’t believe in the power of imagination and joy the same way Spongebob and Patrick do. Even so, it’s important that neither Patrick nor Spongebob is swayed by Squidward.
They are just as entrenched in their view of the world as Squidward is in his because the best way to counteract his negativity is to bring joy and hope into the world. Every day isn’t going to be a ray of sunshine. That doesn’t mean you can’t try to turn it into one, though. If you do that, you may leave the world a little better than you found it.
