Did These Hermione Granger Quotes Remind You of Your Childhood?

Like Hermione Granger, some of us also had a strict upbringing. Her life as a Muggle-born brought harsh treatment from other people around her, and due to this, she developed difficulty in opening up to other people. 

Although it can be hard at first, she started taking small steps necessary to grow. As luck would have it, the result of her going out of her comfort zone is one she did not expect—a friendship that would last a lifetime. Indeed, life is full of good surprises that help us overcome our struggles as we grow older. 

If there’s one thing we have learned from Hermione Granger, it’s that being yourself is vital in this world. At the end of the day, the right people will come along and appreciate you for your uniqueness. With that, we hope that these quotes were able to remind you not to be afraid to embrace who you are!
