I’ve been reading all my life, and I believe reading is something the world does not appreciate enough. In all my years, I’ve learned more about life from reading than from actually living. Here are 7 lessons I’ve learned over the years.


1- Love is perhaps the most instrumental part in a well-lived life, regardless of what type of love it is. (From Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling)

2- Watch your words, because you never know what anyone else has going on, what pain they’re holding onto. (From 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher)

3- Things are tough all over. Everyone has something going on and whether or not their issues are bigger than yours does not determine the relevancy of your problems. (From The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton)

4- Sometimes the most important thing is taking care of yourself first, before anyone else. (From The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins)

5- Remember where you came from and how you got to where you are now. (From The Selection Series by Kiera Cass)

6- Each of us is gifted. Someone may be able to do the same thing as you, but nobody can do it the way you do it. (From Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan)

7- Being kind is more important than being right. (Wonder by R. J. Palacio)

Some people learn by doing. Others learn by watching others do. I learn by reading about others succeeding and failing.
