17 Lessons Spongebob Squarepants Taught Us About Life
Feeling Homesick is Natural
One of Spongebob’s best friends, Sandy Cheeks, is not a native of his undersea realm. She’s from the great state of Texas, and in one early episode, she gets a bit homesick. She even sings a song about it.
It’s not totally clear why Sandy ended up under the ocean, but it’s clear in this episode that missing your home is totally okay. What mattered for Sandy was having good friends around her who were willing to comfort her. Feeling homesick sucks, but it’s not the end of the world. Spongebob and Patrick are the good friends that Sandy needs to feel just a little bit better about her new home.
