One of the reasons why is because so many characters play an important part in the story.
Some of those roles are emotional, deep,
If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll appreciate these 10+ Life lessons we can all learn from.
#1 – Fight for what you believe in
If there’s one theme running through
Whether that goal is a team effort as a guild or a personal goal each person is trying to achieve.
Natsu Dragneel is one of the best examples of this. As well as Erza Scarlet.
No matter how hard it is to accomplish the things they’re fighting for, they have complete belief and conviction in their goals. And that’s really what it takes to make it a reality.
Sometimes we don’t believe in ourselves or what we’re doing enough. And that makes it so much more difficult to succeed.
#2 – Learn from your mistakes
Remember what scene the image above is from?
It’s when Laxus is disbanded from the
All because he was power-hungry and trying to prove a point. So Makarov disbands Laxus from the
As the series progresses, you start to see Laxus change little by little. And it’s plain to see by the time he re-joins the guild that he’s done plenty of thinking about his mistakes.
Eventually, this makes him a more
We all make mistakes, but it’s learning from our mistakes that matter the most.
Otherwise, we’ll just keep causing problems for ourselves and everybody around us. Even if it’s done unintentionally.
#3 – You don’t have to carry the world on your shoulders
How easy is it to try to do everything yourself? And try to deal with all the problems you have by yourself instead of sharing it with others.
Especially the people who care about you and even have your back when you need them?
It’s easy to try to carry the world on our shoulders. But the thing is – we don’t have to. And it makes sense not to do it.
Two minds are always better than 1. And a team effort is always smarter than trying to handle everything by yourself.
Nobody’s that perfect.
#4 – Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses. And that’s OK
Mirajane Strauss said it best when she mentioned the quote below in
And that’s exactly the point! Nobody’s the same and we’re not meant to be. We’re different.
What makes you strong and what makes you weak is different to how it is for someone else.
Take a look at the
Erza might be the strongest when it comes to physical strength. But just like anyone they all have their own weaknesses too.
Lucy Heartfilia in comparison isn’t as strong in physical power, but she’s strong in other ways. Like how she handles all the pains and struggles she dealt with when growing up.
Or how she’s able to put a smile on the faces of everyone around her. Or how her gate keys are more useful in certain situations than others.
What’s important is knowing your strengths and focusing on them instead of comparing yourself and putting yourself down.
#5 – Sometimes giving up is the best option
Remember the fight between Gildarts and Natsu Dragneel on Tenrou Island?
It wasn’t much of a fight but once Gildarts got serious, Natsu froze in shock and couldn’t move.
He was afraid. And he knew from that moment he didn’t stand a chance of winning the fight. And so – Natsu gave up on the spot. When you first see that episode it’s mind-blowing but there’s also a life lesson.
Not everything is worth fighting for.
Sometimes you have to know when to quit and when what you’re trying to accomplish isn’t going to work.
It’s a hard decision to make but it can make a big difference. Depending on what it is you’re actually giving up.
That can help you change as a person and improve for the better.
6. Never give up without a fight
“If you think of giving up, think of the reason why you held on so long.” – Natsu Dragneel
In the eyes of a normal person, Natsu is crazy. But from Natsu’s point of view, he’s too determined and committed to give up and throw in the towel.
Especially when there’s a chance, even if a small chance, that he CAN succeed.
And funny enough Natsu 9/10 defeats the enemies who were naturally stronger than him.
The lesson? Never give up on yourself. It’s not over until it’s over.
7. Always stand up for your friends
Natsu cares a lot for his friends. In this way, he’s similar to Goku from
Even if the odds are against Natsu, and even If standing up for his friends may put him in danger… It doesn’t matter.
Natsu has standards and morals he lives by, and that’s what fans can learn from him.
8. Rise above your challenges
Most people if faced with a challenge will break under the pressure. But Natsu is the kind of guy who see’s a challenge and says – “I’m all fired up now”.
Then he does his best to overcome those challenges.
This is the reason Natsu Dragneel continues to become stronger throughout the
9. Give it everything you’ve got
Holding back only worsens your chances of success. Natsu understands this, so no matter what the circumstances or obstacles are, Natsu gives it his best.
Even if that means he’ll end up losing after all is said and done.
The lesson here is – always give it your best, even if it seems pointless to do so. Because you’ll have a better chance of succeeding.
