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.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
