Nine Lessons "Digimon" Taught Me
Digimon has been one of my favorite T.V. shows from my childhood. What wasn’t cool about it? There was an entirely different world where creatures evolved and kids fought to save the world. However there are important aspects that Digimon taught through all the battles, and evolutions, several important lessons that are found in the form of “crests” that each character has. Each crest embodies an important characteristic that kids – and perhaps all of us – should learn before going out into the world. Here are the top nine lessons that Digimon taught me.
In Digimon, the characters have to have courage before they choose to fight in a battle. It allows them to face their fears and fight for what they believe in. If they do so, they eventually will be rewarded for their courage with the fruits of their hard work.
Courage is what allows people to face their fears and take steps on to greater things.
All the characters in Digimon rely on each other as friends. Without each other, they cannot keep going. It connects the characters together, gives them a bond so they never feel alone.
Friends are there to cheer you on and give you the courage you need to take on challenges. They keep each other going even in the tough times. They give a helping hand and make sure you never feel down. Everyone needs friends to stay connected and to rely on for support
The characters’ love for their digimon and each other allows them to bond together to defeat the evil digimon.
Love is important for everyone – it gives people that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. It makes people feel important and allows them to move forward.
When the characters are sincere with themselves and others it gives people the opportunity to trust each other. Trust between the digimon and its tamer is important so they can battle and win together.
Sincerity is what keeps people honest. Teaching sincerity to kids allows them to realize their full potential in themselves. It also teaches them to be sincere with others, letting people trust them in their relationships.
Knowledge allows the characters to understand how the Digital World works. It gives them further insight to what their digimon need and allows them to bring out its full potential to win in battle.
Knowledge is important to understand not only how the Digital World but how our world works. It is what makes us informed, responsible people, and is necessary for life.
The characters need to know that they will be there for each other so they can make it through the Digital World together.
Now, reliability allows us to trust each other and be given responsibility so we can learn and grow. While important for kids, this is also important for college students – we need to learn how to be reliable too!
The characters in the Digital World have to have hope that everything will turn out okay. Even if something seems impossible, hope is the key factor in carrying someone through to the end.
Hope is what can save someone before they give up. Hope can be as small as hoping for a new doll or hoping for a cure for cancer. But hope is what keeps it alive and thriving.
In Digimon, light is there because even if a character feels like the only thing around them is darkness, there will always be a candle of light for them to follow.
Even if one feels as if there is only “darkness” in their life, all it takes is someone to light a candle for them, or for themselves to find that one thing to follow and lead them away from the dark depths of despair.
Finally kindness. When each character showed another kindness their bonds tightened and they could go on to finish a fight.
Showing someone a little kindness in their time of need may be what they needed to keep going. Kindness can be small, but surprisingly meaningful. Saying “Hello” or telling someone “Let’s be friends” not only lets oneself grow but others as well.
See? There’s more than just the awesome battle scenes in Digimon. The show is more than just a “kiddy” show, but something that teaches values and core life lessons that everyone needs to be happy in life.
