A book can be a good friend

.
There are thousands of books that can become unique books for you, books that will help you in bad times and that will even become friends that will accompany you throughout your life.

A book, can be part of those things that we need on our bedside table before going to sleep, like the little glass of water or the alarm clock. Through the memory that has left us or rereading it, we can find that eternal companion.

There are books that help you grow, understand life and understand you and others better.

I still remember when she was just 14 years old, the language teacher had the brilliant idea of ​​sending us to read "The Diary of Anne Frank".

I still miss the way her words shook me, while I waited for my mother to have dinner ready and I accompanied her sitting in the kitchen with my little book.

Another of my best memories about books and how they helped me to shape myself as a person was when a friend somewhat older than me told me: Do not you know Hermann Hesse? Well, I'll give you one of his books, "Siddhartha".

After Siddhartha, I decided that Hesse would stay with me during my adolescence. I loved buying his second-hand books and reading on the balcony at dusk without anyone bothering me, it was the greatest of pleasures.

I spent little more than 20 years and miraculously, I discovered "The man in search of meaning" by Viktor Frankl; I thought it could be interesting, without knowing how important this book would be in my life. Today, I still love raising my head while I work and spotting it in my library, it meant so much to me.

It would not be many more years in my life, when Daniel Goleman's "Emotional Intelligence" appeared. I wanted to be emotionally intelligent and who better than my friend Goleman to teach me. Through time I have re-read it and it always serves me, always.

Any book that reaches your heart, that helps you emotionally, can serve as a "self-help book". Although, its gender is not that or has been written with another intention.

A love poem, when you are suffering from lovelessness, can give you strength and make you feel that you are not alone, that love and lovelessness are universal feelings, for which we have all passed at some time.

The novels help us to see that life is full of experiences, some better, others worse, but that is life and that you only learn to live it, living it.

The stories of people who have suffered the holocaust, a natural catastrophe, a terrorist attack or the loss of a child, help us to relativize and find the authentic meaning of life. They help us to put aside some of our "silly worries", to understand the authentic depth that the road of life has, beyond a thousand everyday things to which we give an importance that they do not really have.

And is that if you want self-help books, research, search, let yourself be guided by your intuition, ask for the help of reading friends, because you can find real treasures and authentic "self-help jewelry" with equal or greater power over you, than the classic books self-help Eye, without detracting from this genre in which there are also very good books.

And for you, what are the books of your life?
