Do you know why Harry Potter is so special and such a big deal? Because even though it belongs to the whole world, it still feels so personal, like the characters and their stories were written just for you. We all read the same books but we each went on a very different journey with Harry. Some of us grew up with him, some of us watched him grow up instead, and some of grew into a completely different person because of him. I think that’s pretty cool.
"I thought that I had kind of beaten my issues, but when you struggle with depression or anxiety or anything else, you never really win. You always carry it with you and the point, I learned, isn’t to win. The point is to keep fighting. It turned out that “I’m not sad anymore” wasn’t a victory speech. It was a battle cry."
