- You can’t change the past, but you can change your future
Everything that happened in the past affects us in some way, yet there is no way we can change it. It is sad if you think about it, isn’t it? You cannot change what happened in the past, but you can definitely do something today that will make your future better.
The best demonstration of this is Harry himself. He lost his parents when he was an infant, and lived with his wretched aunt and uncle during all his childhood years. Yet, choosing to go to Hogwarts changed his life. Find out how by clicking here.
- It is okay to ask for help
This is what Harry learns in the series. He is the type of person who doesn’t like asking for help, even when it is needed badly. His natural tendency is to try and figure it out himself. While this attitude may be useful in some situations, it is a terrible idea in many circumstances.
When Harry did realize that sometimes you need to ask for help from the right people. Be it your friends, your teachers, your parents, even your enemies can sometimes help you in unexpected ways. I mean, had anyone ever thought that Snape would turn out to be of great help to harry?
The lesson is this – use the help that is available and doesn’t be skeptical of other people.
- You are not alone
We all feel a bit lonely sometimes, don’t we? The main character of the series that harry potter himself is a strange paradox. While it is true that he was on his own for the majority of the time, he always had the support of his friends and elders. He was never truly alone.
We are also like Harry. We are seemingly alone yet we have the support of our family, our friends, the community and the elders. It all shows only one thing, you are never truly alone, no matter what the problem you are facing, you can always tell it to someone and use some help.
- Never give up
Finally, harry potter has taught us the value of persistence in life and the never give up attitude that he had. In the entire series, Harry endured so much but he persevered through everything and never gave up.
He demonstrated that you can push through the hardest times and bounce back and still succeed in the end. We all can apply this insight to our own lives and make our own lives better. As Winston Churchill once said, “if you are going to hell, keep going”.
