Most of us have already heard about Jane Austen: she is a novel writer, whose masterpieces have proven timeless throughout centuries. When reading her novel 'Emma', one will certainly discover that the lesson to be learned is that, in life, the smallest things make the biggest differences.
One of the best novels of all time, 'Pride and Prejudice' has a great lesson to teach us all: learn from your mistakes. Just as the characters admit their mistakes and act accordingly, one should always consider the things done wrongly and try to correct them before it is too late.
Austen's novel, 'Mansfield Park' comes to add up evidence to the fact that money is not everything in life. While chasing after it, in the hope that this will make us happy, we might end up losing sight of what truly matters and, therefore, feeling miserable.
The novel 'Persuasion' emphasizes something learned by almost all of us by a very early age: it is always better to trust your own gut than to blindly follow somebody else's advice. While hard to believe sometimes, friendships do not always turn out reliable and, sometimes, only we can decide what is the best action for ourselves.
Now this is one novel everybody must have heard about at least once in their lives. 'Sense and sensibility' has a strong message for us all to bear in our mind: true love takes time. Knowing somebody, understanding that person, making sure it is the right person for you: all these take time. But, eventually, it is all worth it.

Expressive writing, or daily journaling of life events, feelings, emotions and thoughts, is a kind of therapy that improves our mental health, as we do not let life pile up, giving it space, distance and shape while reflecting on it. It acts as a vent to our sadness and deep-rooted pain, providing acceptance, and eventually healing.
