Reading is therapeutic

Reading is therapeutic

I have always been a book lover, and I will continue to be such. I recall reading so hard in primary school in order to top the class and win a collection of African children's books to last me the entire holiday. Reading, for me, is therapy—skimming through pages, learning from the author's point of view, and creating hypothetical scenarios in your head. If I may say so, books are mankind's most magnificent find. They have the ability to transport us to other worlds, making us feel seen, heard, and understood.

When things don't go as planned, I turn to books for comfort. When life becomes overwhelming and the world outside appears too much to take, I seek consolation in the pages of a good book. The authors' story, characters, and settings captivate me. Reading allows me to explore my feelings, learn fresh perspectives, and create empathy for others. It allows me to rest, unwind, and refuel.

My passion for reading grew stronger as I got older. I found new genres, writers, and themes, which broadened my perspective and expertise. I discovered that reading is more than simply a pastime; it is a tool for personal development, self-improvement, and social transformation. Reading has taught me about many cultures, histories, and experiences, all of which have influenced my perspective and actions.

In today's increasingly digitized and fast-paced world, reading is a sacred act that allows us to calm down, think, and connect with ourselves and others on a deeper level. So, if you're feeling confused, stressed, or uncertain, I recommend picking up a book and becoming lost in its pages. You never know what surprises, revelations, and transformations await you.

Finally, I feel that reading is a gift that keeps giving. It's an endless adventure, with a wealth of knowledge, insight, and inspiration always available. So let us appreciate, cultivate, and share this treasure with others. Let us build a world where reading is honored, encouraged, and cherished—a world where everyone may find refuge, comfort, and delight within the pages of a wonderful book.
