This is what i spent a whole class doing
I NEED TO POINT SOMETHING OUT
A lot of people have been complaining about how Elsa’s ”recovery” at the end wasn’t believable - that after thirteen years of fear and depression, there’s no WAY she would be better just like that.
Of course, those people are right. Thirteen years of pain doesn’t disappear after a few moments of happiness.
But here’s the thing - Elsa didn’t just “recover”. She’s happy in this moment, and for good reason - a huge weight has been lifted off her shoulders. She’s relieved to not have to hide, to be with her sister, etc.
However, this is just one scene. Everyone who has depression knows that no matter how depressed you are, there are still some happy (or at least smile worthy) moments. In addition, if you really look at her face, you will notice that the emotions being expressed aren’t just happiness. Elsa’s feeling a whole range of emotions here - nervousness, excitement, disbelief, etc. Not pure happiness.
The fact is, it won’t be a 100% happy ending for Elsa. Even after the movie, she’s still going to have a shitload to deal with. She’ll still suffer from depression, anxiety, etc - the difference is that now she can be open about it and receive help from her sister. She doesn’t have to hide it anymore. Of course, she’ll want to, but now that Anna knows the truth there’s no way she’ll let her.
So yes, Elsa was happy in the end. Is this unbelievable? No. Will she have a perfect happily ever after and never feel intense emotional pain again? Obviously not. She’s going to go through a lot, as anyone recovering from a mental illness does. The important thing is that she’s on the way to getting there, and this scene marks the beginning of her journey to happiness.
this is how depression works. sometimes there are good days, sometimes there are bad days. everyday is always grey, but sometimes with just a little less rain.
Sorry to interrupt these great commentaries, but why is hans(?) standing on the left with a mustache and glasses. Okay it looks like him

i like to tell people when i need to go pee
I picked joining Tumblr and staying active on here because:
- I’m not attractive enough to be a Youtuber
- Not popular enough for twitter
- Facebook is dumb

I want to have Edna’s confidence
The thing is, she needs to be confident. She needs to be THE BEST so that the tragedies of her past don’t happen again. Why “No capes!”? She made those outfits. Her outfits are the reason that competent heroes died. She needs to be better than she was, better than she is, so she sets those standards for herself.
excuse u who gave you permission to give me emotions over edna mode
