One with their feelings...
Well, to begin with I am not that old, I am only 17 but I feel like I grew up with the Harry Potter movies. There has been almost 11 years since the first movie. I was the same age as the characters of Harry Potter and I was feeling like a part of them.
I was imagining myself like another witch playing an important role in the whole story. Every year I was waiting for the next movie and I was thinking about what could possibly happen next!!
I really loved to do this and I kept doing it till the happy end. Strangely, I hadn’t been reading the books. The fact that I was a little child makes me think that I wasn’t really interested in books. But three to four years ago I suddenly found the 5th book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix under my sister´s bed inside a box. I thought that wasn’t too late to begin reading all the books and that’s how I became addicted, not only to the movies but to the books too, especially to the last one - The Deathly Hallows book.
That book was amazing and really touching. All these deaths, even if they are in a book, made me think that even if life takes away people we love there is always a reason for that. And they never really leave us; they are always next to us. I strongly believe that the most important thing that the movies of Harry Potter teach us is friendship. Yeah, I know that may sound common but it is so different at the same time. These three people, Harry, Hermione and Ron, have been together so many years and they had came through so many tough and strange situations and that makes me feel that if they can do that then everybody can.
Even if this is a story, it is a story that can actually show the right way, the bright side of everything. So, that is how Harry Potter helped me go through all these difficulties that I faced while I didn’t have faith in me and I was down. And when I felt that it was better for me to leave everything behind.
