A decade has passed since the series finale of my all-time favorite sitcom aired in the United States. Yes, I’m referring to the beloved show, Friends!

The series made its debut in 1994, and I vividly recall the instant obsession it ignited in me. I was just fourteen years old at the time, and Friends dominated my world. I eagerly followed the lives of Monica, Ross, Phoebe, Rachel, Joey, and Chandler. After a remarkable ten-year run, during which I watched every episode repeatedly, memorized every line by heart, bidding farewell to the show in 2004 was a poignant moment. To this day, I’ve only seen the series finale twice. I distinctly remember shedding tears as I watched it; when you’ve been devoted to a show for a decade, saying goodbye is a deeply emotional experience.

Now, exactly ten years after the series finale, Friends continues to hold a special place in my heart. It’s an indelible part of my teenage years. A few years ago, I invested in the complete series on Blu-Ray, and I still occasionally watch an episode or two. The show never fails to lift my spirits. To me, Friends is timeless and an enduring classic, cherished not only by me but by millions of fans worldwide. It stands as a testament to having some of the finest writers; many of the show’s lines are nothing short of brilliant.

Friends will always be there for me!
