Sorry. I really am. But when I saw that text post, I had to.

HOW COULD YOU

HOW FUCKING COULD YOU

YOU MADE ME CRY. HOW DARE YOU.

I was pushing my wife down the lunchmeat aisle at the supermarket today with our daughter when we encountered an expedition from the local group home. A group of a few neurologically challenged people with a caretaker. 

Well, one of them found the wheelchair fascinating and came over to get a closer look. Now, he didn’t have much in the way of understanding of personal space, but neither I nor my wife left threatened, though our daughter was leery of the whole situation. But I’ve seen cats get all curious about the weirdly shaped bicycle/chair combo. Now that is a cat scan.

The caretaker was all apologetic, and I am sure she was worried about us creating a scene — it is almost always the mundanes that are the issue. I said it was no big deal, wheelchairs are weird. She hustled them off probably keeping them focused on moving make things easier for her.

Had to explain about them to my daughter a little, but they are people too, with different limitations.

It’s True Love…No, it’s False Love

In the beginning of Frozen, Anna was very naïve about love and had a false concept about what it was. Remember that as a child, she spent a lot of her time alone. I am sure that during that time, she would read a lot of fairy tales and romance novels. She would read about princesses who would be rescued by dashing, handsome princes and they would live happily ever after.

So then as Anna grew up, she barely had any contact with her sister and felt lonely and unloved. She became afraid to be alone and realized that romance could be the ticket to change her lonely life. This is why she was so excited about Elsa’s coronation; it would give her a chance to meet people, and possibly a man she would marry. However, a slight downside to this is that the gates would only be open for the one day, and it sounded like Anna was determined to find a man in this short time, not even considering the consequences.

Anna was desperate for a change, especially with romance because after being rejected by Elsa for years, she wanted to find someone she could love and who could love her.

When Hans first appears, Anna is instantly smitten with him. Why? Because he looks and acts just like a prince out of a fairy tale. After reading fairy tales for years, a prince charming has finally come to reality in Anna’s life. He flirts with her, dances with her, catches her, and sings a duet with her. Through all of these actions, as a prince, Hans is exactly everything Anna dreamed he would be, and that’s the very reason why she falls for him.

So then when Hans proposes to Anna, despite her knowing him only for a few hours, she immediately accepts. Both Elsa and Kristoff are shocked and confused at how Anna could want to marry a man she just met and hardly knows. But Anna stubbornly argues that what she and Hans have is true love, and that it doesn’t matter that they just met. And it’s all because of how Hans acts the way she wants is why Anna says she knows more about true love than Elsa does.

As an interesting tidbit, because Hans appears to be a prince right out a fairy tale, it’s part of the reason why Anna tells Kristoff that Hans is not a stranger. She assumes things about him: that he will always provide her with a true love’s kiss, that he will rescue her when she needs saving, and basically that he will always be there for her when she needs him. The keyword is that she assumes things, she does not really know. Through Kristoff’s questions, the answers she gives shows that she does not know him at all. (BTW, when she says, “Excuse me, sir, he is a prince,” even that is an assumption. She thinks that just because he is a handsome and charismatic prince, he wouldn’t do something as gross as picking his nose.)

Because Anna had spent so much time dreaming about love and finding her true love, it blurred her vision between reality and fantasy. It’s also there with Hans. He is handsome, charming, and knows each and every way to make a girl fall for him. But everything he says and does is artificial. They are not real. Hans realizes that Anna wants a dream prince, so he takes advantage of her that way by pretending to be someone he isn’t just to reel her in and make her think he loves her.

When Hans finally shows Anna his true colors, he rejects her and cruelly teases her for being so easy to manipulate and desperate for love that she didn’t hesitate to think of the consequences. This is the moment that gives Anna a harsh awakening and realization that love is not at all what she thought it was. His treachery has humiliated and confused her and made her disillusioned about love, so that when she tells Olaf that she doesn’t know what love is, it is the truth.

However, when Olaf tells her what love is and uses Kristoff as the perfect example, it begins to lighten her spirits, and even more when Olaf sees Kristoff and Sven coming back to Arendelle. Even though she becomes desperate to kiss Kristoff in order to save her own life, she makes the ultimate sacrifice of saving Elsa before Hans can kill her. The fact that she thawed meant that her sacrifice was an act of true love, which meant that it did not have to be a form of romantic love. And when Elsa expresses her awe, Anna simply says “I love you.” Despite their long estrangement, Anna has always deeply loved Elsa.

Because of her mistake and trauma with Hans, Anna learned a hard lesson about true love. While Kristoff may love her at the end, she does not love him yet. She realized that true love is not easy to do or win. It is something you have to work for and earn. She likes Kristoff, but after all that has happened, she wants to take things slow and one step at a time with him.

Kristoff is the exact opposite of what Anna imagined about love with a man since she was a child. But he’s also a good different…especially since he is not at all like Hans. Even though Kristoff is far from a dream prince, he has a lot to offer Anna in terms of a relationship. With him in her life, I’m sure that she’ll realize that what she initially wanted with love may not be what she wants after all.

One thing this reminds me of is how readily she blames herself for things that went wrong, at the Ice Palace she apologies for not being there enough for Elsa. How she worries about Kristoff’s ice business is another. 

When Hans leaves her in the library, she is up against the door, when Olaf arrives she is a couple of feet away. She tried crawling back to the fireplace to relight it to try to save herself somehow but she gave up. Her self-blame must have been awful. It sucked all her strength away.

But when Olaf showed her love, love that threatened his life and knew, really knew that Kristoff loved her, she was able to move again and walk again and in the end save everyone.

Anna may have been desperate for love, but she was always full of love.

panic/anxiety attack

chris-sid:

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.

Not gonna lie some guy literally walked down my road an hour ago drawing faces on everybody’s cars


What a cockmunch
Like, he could have been nice and actually wiped their cars off
but instead he drew faces on them as if to say “I was here and put effort in to do something, but it was something useless.”
