5 Things We Can Learn From Harry Potter: Life Lessons We Can Adopt in Real Life
Build the Foundations for Bravery, Friendship, and Acceptance with These Books
Since the first Harry Potter book (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) was published in 1997, the franchise has sold over 500 million books worldwide, inspiring eight movies and two spinoffs, a stage play, Harry Potter theme parks, video games, and hundreds of best-selling merchandise items from robes and wands to treats.
There’s no doubt that children and even adults worldwide love J.K. Rowling’s books. They achieved a massive following because each Harry Potter adventure is a source of lasting lessons for the readers. Kids Car Donations has compiled some of these lessons:
1. Friendship knows no boundaries.
Harry Potter proved that true friendship is priceless. Friendships open doors to possibilities. When you are surrounded by people who believe in you, nothing is impossible. When three unlikely friends Harry, Ron, and Hermione became friends, their relationships broke through the boundaries of their different backgrounds. They may not always see eye to eye on everything, but their loyalty, trust, and belief in each other carried them through even their worst challenges. The same goes for the different houses of Hogwarts.
2. Don’t judge a book by its cover.
One of the most amazing lessons that the Harry Potter books taught people was not to judge people based on their appearance. Neville Longbottom, despite looking like a scaredy-cat, was one of those who fiercely fought the Death Eaters. Luna Lovegood, who seemed weird at the outset, was one of the wisest and kindest people who stood by Harry and his friends during their darkest time. Hagrid looked gruff and scary on the outside but was a complete marshmallow inside.
3. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
When things get too rough, it is okay to admit that you need help. Harry made it through countless scrapes because he was brave enough to ask his friends for help. The creation of Dumbledore’s Army was one of the most epic results of his courage.
4. The power of love.
Harry’s parents made the ultimate sacrifice to save their son, and it was their love that helped him face up the threat of Voldemort and his forces. Snape’s love for Harry’s mom was also a driving force for him to protect her son, risking his own life for the cause.
5. Money does not lead to happiness.
The Weasleys are the warmest and bravest families in the series. They lived in penury, but they were always overflowing with love and happiness in their bustling home. On the other hand, the Malfoys and several other rich “purebloods” in the series took comfort in inflicting malice on others because it was the only way they could feel good about themselves.
