Like Hiccup, Do You Also Feel Like You Don’t Belong?

The typical Berkian would kill a dragon at first sight. Hiccup, on the other hand, cannot bring himself to kill the dragon that he caught. Instead, he set it free.

However, because the dragon was injured, it couldn’t fly. So, he befriends it and even names it Toothless! Because of his different mentality, he had the most unusual friendship with the dragon and showed the whole tribe that an enemy could be the best ally.

It’s easy to accept what we already know as the truth. But, Hiccup showed us that not everything we perceive to be true really is. Just because we grew up having one piece of information as fact doesn’t make it absolute.

In How to Train Your Dragon, we also learn that being different isn’t bad! It might even be a tool for us to change someone’s life or ours, just like how Hiccup was able to with the island of Berk.

With that, we hope that you were able to find the inspiration to embrace your uniqueness and search for the truth through this list of quotes. Always be true to yourself, and don’t be afraid to be different!
