So, the other day I found this commentary of Spongebob Squarepants on Youtube. I expected it to just be like a review of the show, but it goes into this interesting point about the duality of Spongebob’s and Squidward’s personalities. Basically, when we are children we are like Spongebob: naive, but joyful and inquisitive of the world around us. Life always seemed like an adventure. But when we become adults we turn into Squidward: jaded, cynical and unhappy. (More or less.) I know I’ve felt that way sometimes and when I saw this I had to wonder, when did I become a Squidward? And, why do we let this happen to ourselves?
(Disclaimer, there’s a bit of NSFW content)
To reiterate the video, we should all try to be more like Spongebob - because that way we will be truly happy in life despite our circumstances.

I used to love watching spongebob and that is a really good point that was made. As I've grown up I've just got less naive and happy and just much more cynical of everything around me. I think I have turned into more of a squidward at this point, and sometimes I think it is just hard to not be squidward. Of course we should all find room to have a bit of spongebob inside, but that can be hard for everyone.
