Are You Hiding Away?
On the weekend we went to see the children’s movie Frozen in the cinema. The children all enjoyed it…. Okay I did too. Without trying to wreck the movie for those of you that are going to go see the movie, I am going to cover off one of the lessons I learnt from the movie.
One of the main characters in the film is a princess with the magic ability to turn things icy with her bare hands. As the story goes one day her magic ability did harm, so her parents locked the doors to the castle and hid her away, without telling anyone why. Not even her younger sister knew why. When their parents passed away in an accident, she was to be Queen. At the celebration of her coronation her younger sister and her had a fight and the magical powers came out and caused havoc.
So, I ask myself was it best to hide the magical powers all these years or would it have been better to have them out in the open? What would have been the consequences of being out in the open earlier?
It seems that by hiding the magical powers the princess, now Queen, was exposed to a more dangerous situation when she was found out. Hiding the magical powers did not resolve the problem, it just made it worst when the magical powers were exposed. I think about my life and the problems and issues I have from time to time…. as we all have. I know there are times that if I asked for help earlier I would not be in as big a hole as I may be in at the time.
- Are the problems or issues that you are hiding away?
- Is there someone that can help you, if you only asked?
- Is hiding the problem or issue going to solve the problem or just make it worst?
