Harry Potter saved my life.
I know it sounds cliché, but it's true. When I was
younger, I had horrible self confidence. I had glasses and
braces, covered in freckles, and had (and obsiously still have) a
huge, obnoxious nose. I was quiet and was the class "weird
girl". I was bullied and picked on by my peers, and as a
fourth grade, I felt utterly useless. As a ten year old girl, I
was contemplating suícide.That's when I met Harry.
Every day after school, whether I was bullied or not, I would
come home and read. I even borrowed the books on tape from the
library and would lay on my bed for hours at a time and listen to
them, over and over and over again. There was something about the
words that J.K. Rowling was able to arrange in such a beautiful
way that just made me feel better. I honestly believe that
without those books as an escape, I wouldn't be here today.
Because of what I went through when I was younger, I am a much
better and stronger person that I was. As a symbol of what I went
through when I was younger, my foot now sports a Deathly Hallows
triangle tattoo. To everyone who is going through expiriences
similar to mine, please remember, things will get better, even if
it doesn't seem like it right now. Don't let
the muggles get you down.
