Harry Potter and valuable mental health lessons 🤔💡💡

Growing up in the Golden era when Harry Potter series was still ongoing and the thrilling rush of emotions when each time a new book was launched and the race to finish on the same day of purchase was definitely enthralling ! When revisiting, I (amongst many others) realized the hidden messages each book had on tackling mental health issues which indeed does bring light on the level of impact it had on our lives. Sharing a simple example - Happiness is a state of mind. "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest times, if one only remembers to turn on the light," says Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This line is a powerful reminder that each one of us has an inner light within us — a beacon of happiness. We can either ignore it and let the circumstances control us or, we can choose to harness that light. That is, learn to have hope, look for the silver lining and continue to persevere.
