It's easy for me to understand. When I was a little kid I used to think that the world of Harry Potter was real. Everyone thought I was a little crazy, and no one wanted to play Harry Potter with me. I was reading the books at the age of three, and I was so obsessed.
It just seems such a cool world full of cool stuff like magic. How awesome would it be to go to Hogwarts ?! When I was growing up, I used to think that when I turned 11, I would get a Hogwarts letter.
The letter never came. :(. It was horrible. I shut myself in my room for three days and cried. I was so obsessed and I couldn't let it go.
To this day; I am always thinking about Harry Potter. I'm almost 14, and still so completely obsessed. The obsession never fades, it will always be there.
When I first saw Emma Watson, I thought she was so pretty and awesome. So I used to obsess over what I wore everywhere, and my hair always had to be perfect. And then I'd see what my friends were wearing and be like, 'nuuuuuuuu....! I totally suck!'.
When I got Harry Potter and the half-blood prince, I was so upset when I read about Dumbledore's death. I started crying and my mum was like "...."
To me, it's just so real. Everything that happens, everything that doesn't happen... it's all so real. People can make fun of us, and people can ditch Harry Potter for Twilight, but WE are the TRUE Harry Potter fans! And WE are the ones that keep the world of Harry Potter alive and living.
Don't be ashamed of your addiction, my friend. Don't let others bring you down. Harry Potter is apart of you, and that's the way it's always going to be. Be PROUD to say that YOU are a Harry Potter fan.
Us Harry Potter fans are better than the Twilight fans. Here we are, talking about WHY we love Harry Potter, and all they ever do is go "mmm... i luv rob he is so smexy."
HARRY POTTER FANS UNITE!!!!
But you've got to make room for socialisation. You can still hold onto Harry Potter, but you've got to allow yourself to do things. Hang out with your friends, enjoy yourself. If you really want to get your mind away from HP, then that will help.
Your friends will distract your thoughts and you'll find that it's actually kinda fun hanging out with them and socializing with others. But in the end, Harry Potter will always be there, and nothing can change that.
