Things Peter Pan Taught Me


· That growing up doesn’t always mean growing old ·

Everyone always thinks that as you grow older you have to be more serious, lose all your childhood dreams and your sense of adventure. But Peter Pan taught me that just because your older, doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun.

· Everyone needs adventure in their life ·

Even the most serious people in the world need to have a little adventure sometimes. Even captain hook, who I personally think is the grouchiest old man, wanted some adventure in his life.

· Love isn’t just something grown ups feel ·

Peter Pan, though young, loved Wendy. I think people underestimate love and think that because someone is young they don’t know what it is. I think they’re wrong. Love is love, no matter how old you are.

· That sometimes you have to let the things you love most go ·

Peter let Wendy go home, even though he easily could’ve told her he didn’t have a way to. Sometimes we have to let the things we love go, no matter how hard it is, because in the end it’s for the better.

· Sometimes your family isn’t just the people related to you ·

Peter and the lost boys were family though none were related. Sometimes are family isn’t our blood relatives, but the people we couldn’t live without.

· That if you believe enough, Your dreams can come true ·

People often give up on their dreams because they don’t believe in themselves, but Peter Pan taught me that dreams can only come true if you believe in them.

· To fight, even when you’re scared ·

Fighting for what you believe in can be hard and sometimes frightening. What happens if you fail? Or if people end up hating you for it? Peter taught me to fight anyway, because it’s the right thing to do.
