Why You Should Befriend a Book Nerd
Why are nerds the best? Especially book nerds? The answer is because we bring an endearing charm to the table that can be hard to find. We have become a society where people become complacent and conform in the world around them. Nerds or book nerds, may be quiet on the surface and slightly introverted, but peel back their layers and you find brilliant rays of light shining from people who are happy to accept others exactly as they are.
Book nerds, movies nerds, etc. see the magic in the world around them. We often fall in love with fictional characters as if they are real because most characters relate to us at some point in time of our lives or to something that is happening in the world around us. The beauty of books, is I believe, most authors want readers to take something away with them after reading. Some kind of lesson or message. I know for my writing I like for people to take something with them.
We often tend to feel so much more than anyone knows. It tends to make us compassionate toward others. That is, to me, a beautiful thing. The world can always use compassion.
We are also passionate dreamers. I personally appreciate passion. People don’t need to be passionate about the same exact things, it’s the passion in general that is to be admired. It should be appreciated because it sparks a fire within a person’s soul.
These are qualities to be treasured. To all my nerds, my dreamers, my believers, stay passionate. Don’t let anything or anyone kill your fire for it is beautiful.
