The Half-Blood Prince is one of the lengthiest films and books in the Harry Potter franchise. The movie has taught us a lot of think about life. As Professor Severus Snape says, “Control your emotions. DISCIPLINE your mind.” Potterheads, concentrate on this one. Harry Potter movies are not always about magic, portions, and Harry. There is more to it!

Hello everyone! We are here to talk about the 10 Things You Can Learn from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

10. Life Isn’t Fair

Life is not always fair to everyone. There are times when we find ourselves failing continuously in life. Then there are instances when we are not able to get up from our failures. People are burdened by thoughts, their family, friends, career, and everything related to them. It’s not always an easy task.

In The Half-Blood Prince, Professor Severus Snape taught us that whatever we want won’t happen – it’s just life. There are times when our worst fears come true.

What can you do at that time?

Just face this situation! Go on with the flow.

As said in the movie, “It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

9. Kick Start in Life

There are times when our energy is at its lowest. We don’t feel like doing anything in life. Have you been in that kind of situation?

We all have been!

In the Harry Potter movie, we see the romance between Hermione and Ron grow. There is a scene where Hermione finds Ron and Lavender having a romantic moment. This breaks Hermione’s heart but she knows how to manage those situations in life. Hermione tries to move on even after going through a lot of problems.

Sometimes, you just need a bad thing to happen in order to move forward in life.

8. Don’t Give Up

While we’re talking about Ron and Hermione’s romance, we see that Ron was not head over heels for the girl while she waited for him. In the movie, Hermione waited for a long time. She didn’t give up on him.

Sometimes, we might have our goal just at our fingertips. Giving up might change everything in life.

We try a few times to reach our goal, but then give up. Why do we do so?

Sometimes giving up will show how impatient you are! Be patient, at the right time, and at the right moment, you will find what you were searching for, just like how Hermione got Ron.

7. The mind is Where All That Resides

One of the most essential things that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince taught us is that we have to think logically.

Sometimes, we keep our secrets piled up in the brain because only in our minds is there true privacy in this world. We all have to respect privacy and maintain a bit of a distance from the world to keep our own. We do this so that our secrets, or our weaknesses, are not revealed to the world.

Do you share everything with everyone?

We all have that one person with whom we share everything, but we can keep our darkest secrets to ourselves rather than going for that. In the same way, Professor Snape taught his mind to keep his darkest secret to himself.

6. Love Everyone

In today’s world, we make sure to love only those who love us. But that’s not right. Love everyone, even if they are your greatest enemy. You never know when your biggest foe can turn into your best friend.

In life, people’s character changes, and that’s what life has for us as well.

In The Half-Blood Prince, Professor Snape was in love with Harry’s mother, Lily. However, she fell in love with James, Harry’s father, which broke Snape to the core. Even after that, Snape still loves Lily, and that’s why he made it sure to protect her son from Voldemort.

5. Loyalty Matters

Loyalty is an integral part of every relationship. There are chances that when we really trust someone, we share everything with them. In the movie, the dark arts professor also taught us that loyalty means everything, which matters the most.

Not just by words, the professor is also loyal to his students, Lily, Harry, and also Dumbledore.

Loyalty helps us be close to people. In the worst situations, you might find people who will help you get through any life difficulties.

Do you have such a loyal person in life?

4. Importance of Relationships

This is the instance in the series where we get to see some romance between the characters. This is prevalent with Ron and Hermione, of course, but also Harry and Ginny. The characters have been around each other for extended period of time. They have built trust amongst themselves and are faithful to each other.

The friends have gone through any situation – thick or thin. The problems have helped them grow better in life.

Know any friends who will be there for you in the darkest days of your life?

3. Bravery

The Harry Potter stories are about winning and losing, friendships and fights. It also shows the importance of courage in life. Like Professor Dumbledore, who went out in an incredible final act of bravery before he died.

He did not give up until his last breath. Sometimes, we need to stand firm against anything that comes in front of us.

Situations like this happen in everyone’s life. The only thing that you need to keep in mind is to stay strong. Even though Dumbledore was fighting, we could see the terror in his eyes, but he stood up.

2. Trust your Instincts

From the very beginning, Harry knew that Professor Snape is going to be his biggest rival. He had that in his gut! At the end of the movie, we find that he is the biggest rival Harry could have ever imagined.

Sometimes, our instincts do tell us about a person, so trust it! Go on with the flow. Instincts are fundamental in life, and everyone has to believe it in our life.

Do you listen to your instincts?

Now our instincts tell us to take you through some other facts related to The Half-Blood Prince before you see the number one on the list.

  • Draco is not a killer

Harry always knew that Draco was assigned by Lord Voldemort to kill Dumbledore. But Draco actually lacked the courage to do so. Even though he wanted to be on top of Harry, Draco knows that he can’t kill anyone.

Draco tries to kill Dumbledore, but we all know he didn’t kill. Guess who did it?

  • Horcruxes

The villain never dies, not until the last book. When Voldemort was killed, we thought it was the end of the entire franchise. But no, it isn’t!

Voldemort is there in the Horcruxes, which stores his evil forms. That’s how Draco gets in contact with him.

Sometimes, you can’t end the evil that easily.

What do you love: Harry Potter with or without Voldemort?

Now let’s have a look at number one.

1. Humans are Not Perfect

No one is perfect in this world, especially humans. The more we grow, the more our mind gets distracted by things happening around us. That’s when we keep on making mistakes in life. In the Half-Blood Prince, Professor Snape tells that he is not a perfect human.

However, we should accept our mistakes and apologize if it hurts anyone.

People should also understand that they need to forgive when mistakes happen. Forgiveness is the best way to show respect in life.

Have you been in a situation where you made a mistake or need to forgive someone, but can’t?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will always be the favourite movie in the Harry Potter franchise. There are several reasons why we love this movie. Share your thoughts in the comments!
