Scream, shout, and let it all out. It’s tough to keep in feelings that only seem to eat your insides away. It’s a terrible feeling, and you’d do anything to get rid of it. Throw those nasty feelings into the flames and watch it wither away into ashes. What’s stopping you? Oh wait, you were told to “control yourself”, “take a deep breath”, “take a step back”. Still, you do exactly what they tell you to do but your clenched fists maintain its position and heat in great measures is taken in and out of your nostrils. The last thing you want to do is to keep yourself composed. Everything around you takes on the disguise of punching bags and your initial reaction is to give blows here and there. They just don’t understand what I’m going through. It’s easier said than done. They don’t realize how much easier it is. If it’s unbearable, don’t bottle it up inside. Do what you can to bring yourself to normal (what’s normal?) state. Let it all out at the most you can afford given where you’re at.
If you’re at school- let your thoughts take on the form of words. Go to the restroom and splash water on your face and let the water drip down your face for a couple or so seconds before wiping your face down. Hold your breath; it’ll force you to take deep breathes in and out.
If you’re at home- let your imagination run wild. However, do so with the safety of you, your house, and others. Take your pillow and start hitting your bed with it as hard as you can repeatedly. Go to your garage and scream til your lungs run out of air. Take a walk. You’ll thank mother nature later for its calming effects.
Wherever you are, it’s possible to let your anger run wild and free. Take advantage of what’s around you. You’ll be surprised what you can do with the resources around you. Next time those horrible feelings come out, give them a piece of your mind. Whatever battle you may be battling, just know that you’re not alone 🙂
Good kid, mad city
FIRST OFF, go see this movie, it is by far in my top 5 favorite Disney Movies. I mean TWO NEW Disney Princesses? Yes Please! Now for those who don’t know, this movie is about the newly crowned Ice Queen and her little sister, who are basically twins. When the Ice Queen, Elsa(Idina Menzel), discovers her powers as a little girl, she accidentally hurts her little sister, Anna (Kristen Bell), making her parents think she should suppress and hide her powers, removing the memory from Anna’s mind that her sister even had the powers. As the two grow older, Elsa must open the castle gates, closed for about fifteen years, for her coronation. Anna, who is extremely excited to see the world and all the people, is the polar opposite of the nervous wreck that is Elsa. Long story short (and with no spoilers), Elsa reveals her powers a bit too much and flees from the kingdom to hide in the mountains, accidentally starting an eternal winter in the middle of summer. The movie is then about Anna’s adventure getting and convincing Elsa to return with her to the kingdom.
The song shown above, Let it go, is sung by Idina Menzel when her character, Elsa, is finally free to show and test these powers that all her life have been seen as bad. As the songs progresses she talks about showing her all and now caring what other people think, which is such a beautiful thing. For someone to be truly and finally comfortable and happy in their own and with being them self is such a hard thing to achieve, and this song is when that turning point for Elsa happens. The song itself is amazing but with that meaning it truly is something spectacular and award worthy for Disney.
I’ve read in Tale of Two Cities, this one character, Carter, is so obsessed with being better than the “drunken idiot” he is that he goes for the most perfect girl, thinking that will somehow change him. Unfortunately he doesn’t see that he needs to accept himself before anybody can accept him. Throughout the book Carter goes from ups and downs, while his counterpart tells him he will always be less than him. If there is someone like that in your life, I’m telling you not to listen. What’s the point in filling your head with those pointless thoughts. You are who you are, accept and live it. If you want to make a better version of yourself, then do it! But love yourself every step of the way.
Thanks for reading
