Jellal Fernandes is one of the popular characters in Fairy Tail. Who’s loved and has a strong relationship with Erza Scarlet.

Similar to Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z, Jellal goes through a lot of personal changes: from bad to good throughout the Anime.

And there’s a lot of great life lessons from his journey we can learn from as Fairy Tail fans.


1. Be willing to face the consequences of your mistakes

Jellal, for no fault of his own, is possessed by an unknown spell.

This happens in the Tower of Heaven, a place where Jellal, Erza, and others were once child Slaves.

After being possessed Jellal loses himself and becomes manipulative and wicked. Eventually killing one of his old comrades – Simon. And not giving a damn about it.

When the spell wears off, his memories come flooding back to him.

Once Jellal is aware of all the crimes he committed, he willingly takes himself into custody.

After that he then heads straight to Jail. Even though he knew his punishment would be the death penalty.

Life lesson:

Regardless of what you’ve done, always be willing to face up to the consequences of your actions.

If you do, you’ll become a stronger, wiser, smarter person because of it.

You’ll feel much better about yourself from the inside out. And that’ll help you make better choices in future.

2. Surround yourself with supportive people

Jellal escapes Jail because Ultear and Meredy break him out.

And eventually all three of them form a strong partnership. Then they start their own independent guild: Crime Sorciere.

The main purpose of the guild is to put a stop to everything that’s evil.

As well as to gain redemption for all their past crimes.


Life lesson:

Life can be tough. We all have ups and downs. And there’s no way you can go through it all alone.

Going through it alone makes it harder, more of a struggle, and more difficult to deal with.

When you’re surrounded by supportive people, it not only strengthens your bond and motivation, but it takes a lot of weight off your shoulders.

Instead of kidding yourself into thinking you can do it alone, surround yourself with people who will lift you up.

People who will inspire you, and people who want to you to succeed.

Having that kind of support group makes a huge difference.


3. Be willing to make changes

Regardless of his horrible past, Jellal makes positive changes to make things right.

And to help himself grow into a better person.

Because of this, he ends up being surrounded by like-minded people who are on the same path.

And that in itself makes it easier to make the changes Jellal strives for.


What you can learn from this:

You can change no matter what the challenge is. And there’s no reason you shouldn’t be willing to make changes either.

When you step out of your comfort zone and make an effort, you’ll become a better person because of it.

And others will not only notice it, but respect it. And more importantly, you’ll notice the changes.

That in itself will make you happier and more at peace with yourself, because of the kind of person it’ll make of you.
