7 Things Rewatching Old Disney Movies Has Taught Me

If you ever rewatch a movie, make sure to pay close attention to the things you might have missed as you were a kid. And remember, disney movies are not an accurate representation of reality. Life is way more complicated than kid movies make it out to be.

7 Things Rewatching Old Disney Movies Has Taught Me

Live everyday like it’s the last.

Unlike disney movies depict. Life is not a fantasy. Not every story has a happy ending unfortunately and that's why we must be thankful everyday to be able to wake up, see the sun, and see the ones we love and do the things we love.

Nobody is perfect.

Everyone goes through life on one straight line with no bumps. It is rocky and there's ups and downs at every turn. that's what makes you stronger!

Avoid the ones who are not happy for your happy.

In another Cinderella story the evil step sisters try to ruin Cinderella's life because they're jealous. Those who are jealous are the ones you should not have in your life because they're the ones who are likely unhappy with themselves and want to make everyone else miserable because of it.

Keep the good ones close.

Although a ton of the movies have the backstabbing malicious characters, there are also usually those who play the part of the loyal and genuine friend; those people are real. I learned when I got to college that there is such thing as a true friend that wants you to succeed in life and will be there for you through thick and thin. Shout out to all the realists, you know who you are;)

​ There is no Prince Charming.

Sorry but I had to say it. I do not believe in love at first sight or that there is one guy out there for every person that is destined to come sweep you away. But if you want to believe that, keep dreamin'.

High school is cliquey.

Not that there were group labels such as the "jocks," "nerds," "athletes," etc. but there are groups and mjy best advice is to be friends with whoever you want. Jusrt because someone might not be in your immediate "group," does not mean that you cannot build a strong and healthy relationship with that person. Also, if you do not feel like you belong to a group than so be it. It doesn't mean you're any less better than the ones who do have a group.

Karma is a real thing.

Most Disney movies end with the good people living happily ever after; whereas, the bad people do not go far in life. I have witnessed karma in my life and it's real.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
