Tinkerbell

Tink was not all bad: or, rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand,
sometimes she was all good. Fairies have to be one thing or the other,
because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time.
They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change.

Sometimes, we’re kinda like fairies. We get so into something that we are only focused on that one thing. We can no longer hear people speaking to us, and not even a natural disaster could distract us from it. There’s a word for this kind of determination. You know what it is? Passion. This is a feeling that goes beyond your average emotion. It’s a fire that burns deep within us that no one can extinguish. Perhaps this is where Tink gets all of her spunk. She has an attitude and speaks whatever’s on her mind – even if only one person can really understand her. I admire her for that. In fact, I strive to be like her for this reason. Besides, she’s also strong, intelligent, and pretty darn cute. So I’d like to make a suggestion: when you’re feeling a little down, throw your hair up in a fairy bun and channel her personality. A little sass goes a long way. ©

Rapunzel

Rapunzel: I have made the decision to trust you.
Flynn Rider: A horrible decision really.

Don’t you wish more people were like that? Come right out and say it – provide you a warning label. But unfortunately the majority of people like this hide that they are untrustworthy. They conceal the fact well and you usually don’t realize you’re being duped until it’s too late…they’ve hurt you or broken your heart entirely. These people are a large part of what makes the world such a challenging place to live. While you can’t stay up in your tower or keep them wrapped in your hair forever, you can control the power they have over you. If someone says something to offend you, it may hurt but you mustn’t let it crush your spirit. If the young man you’re falling for suddenly becomes scathingly judgmental, leave before the situation gets worse. If your friend turns her back on you, realize that she wasn’t a true friend to begin with. Being strong in a world like this is tough, but you must believe in yourself enough to know you’re worth more than the lies and deception, the pain and guilt, and the heartache and sadness. Remember what a wise woman once said,
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ©
