When I watched Frozen for the first time, there was something instantly appealing to me about Elsa. She had an icy secret, one that she strove to hide from the world. During her famous Let it Go sequence, I felt an amazingly strong connection to her without even realizing why. The song made so much sense to me. I read something on Tumblr today that I have been mulling over and now I finally get it. Elsa, to me, represents an introvert. She is scared to let anyone see her for who she is. Her “power” has hurt someone she loves. And yet there is something inside her that secretly loves this curse. She can’t let it out. She dare not. So she locks all her feelings away deep inside, shutting everyone and everything out. But then something happens that causes all that bottled up emotion to explode. Before she realizes what’s happened suddenly everyone has seen her most vulnerable side. In a fit of terror she runs away. Now she is alone. Her worst fears have been realized. Her carefully constructed walls have been broken to pieces. Everyone has seen the real Elsa. But for some reason, she cannot despair. An inexplicable joy floods her being. For the first time in her life, she is free. She is free to Let it Go. And so she does. All the passions and fears, all the loves, hopes, and dreams. Everything that she never dared to feel comes surging through her veins. There is nothing more to hide. And it is beautiful. The fear of causing hurt and pain, the fear of being looked upon as an outcast is quickly fading in icy splendor. She begins to realize: what she once regarded as something dark and shameful, as something that others would judge her for, was in actuality something beautiful and unique. Something that caused her to shine like the brightest star in the sky.
My own experience with Social Anxiety Disorder seems to mirror Elsa’s story. The things she is going through, and emotions she feels, are all thing I have felt and experienced. This past year i have learned so many of the things that Elsa learns. It is still a struggle, but I know I have made it to the other side and I won’t look back. I am Letting it Go.
Johanna is incredibly perceptive, sarcastic and brash. She speaks her mind, regardless of the consequences, or who she hurts. While Johanna has a very hard exterior, she definitely understands the greater good of the districts and would lay down her life for freedom.
The sass is strong in Disney.
The truly magical moments of Disney.
I feel like people in horror movies live in an alternate universe where there are no horror movies
That explains a lot
