Before reading Twilight, I was a Junior in high school, SCARED to death of life after high school. I didn't have a solid plane, I didn't know what I wanted to do career wise.... AND on top of all that, I was just getting over a broken heart. It was my first love and he didn't even like me.
At first, I only read Twilight because my best friend read it and had such great things to say about it.It was last year, or should I say earlier this year and I was Junior in high school. I am now a Senior.Originally I only wanted to read the book Twilight because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and then watch the movie.
It wasn't until the summer that I got to read it. I couldn't find it at the Library so I had to buy a copy. It took me 5 days to finish Twilight but IT WAS WORTH IT! I LOVED IT!!!!! I fell in love with the Cullens, I fell in love with EDWARD! I fell in love with Stephenie Meyers! It was then that I decided, I wanted to be a writer. Twilight and Stephenie inspired me to be a writer. It also inspired me to read more. I never liked reading and use to only read when I had to, now I read because I want to.
Stephenie saved me because, um she wrote the Twilight saga; and because upon reading it and reading more about her, I found that she and I had a lot in common, ie: She said that she had imaginary friends and she daydreams to kind of the extreme, I do that too, the only difference was that, she thought it was normal, I knew it wasn't normal. I always thought I was weird because of stuff like that, and so when I read that Stephenie did that too it made me feel like "Wow, someone else does that too?! I'm not the only one!". Then I asked my friends and they said that they do it too. For the first time in my life I felt normal. I finally accepted myself for who I am.
Twilight also helped me get over my broken heart, because I could relate to how Bella felt in the beginning, when Edward was being mean to her. I was nothing like Bella(except for the fact that she felt about Edward, in the beginning of the book, what I felt about my first love) but the guy I liked/loved was so much like Edward, can't even begin to explain how. I guess in a way you could say I took my feelings for that guy and convert it to Edward. He and Edward had so much in common(no hes not a vampire, but he does have a Supernatural element to him), I felt Edward was the improved version of him. Edward was really my fantasy guy. People on this site tell me how lucky I was that had an Edward in my life, well I don't I feel lucky; not anymore anyways.
After reading Twilight, I dedicated the next couple weeks to reading the rest of the books. I couldn't wait to get my hands on each one of them.
Since reading the Saga, I have seen Twilight a Billion times, my sister had the movie and later on just decide to let me keep it; about 90%+ of what I buy is Twilight saga related; but sadly I've only seen New Moon once, opening night.
Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight saga saved my life because it helped me to realize what I wanted to do with my life, it helped me get over my broken heart, and most of all, the one I am most thankful for, it helped me to accept myself. Twilight and Stephenie Meyer saved my life. Without it, I would still be stuck in my deep depression of feeling lost and hopeless, and coping with my broken heart of my first love; for the first time in my life I finally felt salvation.
