Love is something we, humans, feel for another person. Love is something we, humans, feel for ourselves. But you know what? Love is also something we, humans feel for those characters who we’ve read growing up and becoming who they’re meant to be. Love is also something we, humans feel for those characters who we’ve read going through difficulties in life and going through life itself stronger than ever. Even more so, those characters I’ve mentioned? They’re parts of who we truly are. They’re parts of who other people truly are. Parts we have learned to love unconditionally over the years.

It teaches you how to accept.

In real life, difficulties can sometimes make us feel hopeless. But in book life, difficulties can make us feel hopeful. In real life, people can sometimes make us feel unloved. But in book life, people can make us feel loved. In real life, things can sometimes make us feel underprivileged. But in book life, things can make us more than privileged.
