Emotions and Elsa

“Don’t let them in,

Don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal,

Don’t feel,

Put on a show,

Make one wrong move and everyone will know.”

If you’ve watched the new Disney movie Frozen or memorized the lyrics for Let It Go or First Time In Forever from that movie, you may recognize those lyrics. The lyrics above are from First Time In Forever. In Let It Go, Elsa changes the last part a little.

“Don’t let them in,

Don’t let them see,

Be the good girl you always have to be,

Conceal,

Don’t feel,

Don’t let them know…”

How many times do we hide our true feelings from others? We hide, we cover up, we lie, just to keep from showing others our emotions. We “put on a show” as Elsa states*.

Why do we feel like we need to cover up what we feel? If someone asks, “How are you?”, we automatically say “I’m good” or “I’m fine.” Why? There’s plenty of reasons: we don’t want to put other people out, we don’t want to ruin someone’s day, we don’t want others to know about our problems, and we don’t want others to judge us. To put it simply, we just think it’s easier not to talk to others about our emotions.

Maybe the next time you’re talking to someone, you should take the time to ask, “How are you, really?” And maybe we should be honest with others when we’re hurting, or sad, or frustrated. It might make things a whole lot easier.

*Okay, so maybe Elsa isn’t hiding her emotions so much as she’s hiding her powers, but the lyrics still apply, right? 🙂

    1. Definitely. She needed a bit of a smack upside the head. I can’t remember if you’re a fellow HISHE fan, but their How Frozen Should Have Ended video was HILARIOUS. And made quite a good point, too.

      1. That’s the way that it is with too many sequels. Ultimately forgettable. 😛
