Harry Styles: lover of print shirts, good manners and all things giving us a heart attack has actually taught us more than just 'how to feel unconditional love for a boy band you've never met', as proved by the following 9 things we've learned from the One Direction singer.
1. Always be yourself
If Hazlan von Styles and his slow speaking voice, Northern laugh and long hair of dreams (RIP) taught us anything, it's that there is nobody better for you to be, than you. Just think, if he hadn't been the unashamed baker boy from Holmes Chapel, he probably wouldn't have been put into One Direction and then our lives would NEVER BE SO GLORIOUS.
2. Wear whatever the hell you want
Case in point:
3. Don't forget your manners
Real talk: there has never been someone better at remembering their Ps and Qs than Harry Styles, and we all know how such a humble and polite approach has helped him get such a charming and glorious reputation. Don't forget your manners, guys.
4. Be nice to everyone
If all else fails, be kind, considerate and caring about others and good things will come to you - as proved by arguably the nicest man in the world, Harry Styles. He's kind to fans, offers food to paparazzi and gives to charity - with his chopped off hair going to Princess Trust to make a wig for ill children.
5. Follow your passions
When he landed a role in Dunkirk, most people were sceptical about whether it was just a rumour, if he could act or whether he'd actually landed the role on merit or fame, but Hazlan wasn't phased and has nailed it so far anyway. Oh, and he also entered a talent competition. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS, PEOPLE.
6. Dad jokes make the world go around
If we've learned anything from the king of dad jokes, it's that humour is incredible important when it comes to improving errryone's quality of life and having a good time. What's wrong with a bit of cheese now and then, anyway?
7. It's OK to be different
Real talk: we don't understand Harry Styles's approach to social media. Never have, never will. And when you pair that with his jazzy shirts, hilarious comments and scrabble obsession, the One Direction fella proves it's not only OK to be different, it's GREAT. Appreciate your differences, people.
8. If you trip over a dog, apologise to it
YES THIS IS A LIFE LESSON AND NO WE'LL NEVER FORGET IT.
9. Family and good friends are important
Don't underestimate the power of a true friend or close family member, and make sure you show them how much you appreciate them on a frequent basis. Who else is gonna love you unconditionally despite your erratic hair choices and giant flares, eh? EH?
So yeah, cheers for those life lessons Harreh.
