Frozen + I bet you thought that was gonna be about a boy.
See I think this is exactly why people throw out that hyperbole that Frozen is “the first Disney movie that’s about family” or “the first Disney movie that isn’t about a guy.” Because of course every Disney fan knows that isn’t true. There’s some great Disney movies about family (like Lilo and Stitch for example). But here’s the thing - Frozen is the first movie that continually makes you think that it was going to be about a guy and then just goes HAHA NOPE. And that’s why I think some people jump to say it was the ‘first movie about family’ because it tricked them into thinking it was going to be a completely different movie.
My favorite thing about Frozen is that the plot is literally just two sisters learning to understand each other’s perspective and then a little bit of Disney redefining its message about what kinds of relationships we should strive for.
I’m so obsessed with this no joke I reblog it every time I see it.
this makes my stomach drops
only just understood this and woah it scares me
this is too real it felt like a stab in the stomach
We talk about trust as something you build, as if it’s a structure or a thing. But in that building there seems to be something about letting go. And what it affords us is a luxury. It allows us to stop thinking. To stop worrying that someone won’t catch us when we fall. To stop constantly scanning for inconsistencies. It allows us to rest a part of our minds, so that we can focus on what’s in front of us. And that’s why it’s such a tragedy when it’s broken. A betrayal can can make you think of all the other betrayals that are waiting for you, in things you haven’t thought of, in people you rely on. And you can feel yourself tightening up, and in the worst cases, you might resolve to trust no one.
But that doesn’t really work.
Trust is your relationship to the unknown, what you can’t control. And you can’t control everything. And it’s not all or none. It’s a slow and steady practice of learning about the capacity of the world. And it’s worth it to keep trying. And it’s not easy.
Trust is like these invisible hands that we stretch out into the world, looking for someone to hold on to as we walk into the unknown future..
