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

c

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.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
