Not often does a children’s movie convey a deep underlying theme about anxiety and depression, but Pixar’s 2015 film Inside Out did just that.
Inside Out demonstrates how people can get stuck avoiding their emotions, and the painful aftermath that comes from suppressing these feelings of sadness. In order to heal, you have to feel. Allowing yourself to cry, scream, get uncomfortable, and let your emotions surface is imperative if you want to heal and move on.
Although Inside Out is considered to be a children’s film, there is much to be learned by adults as well based on the premise hidden beneath the clever animation. If you want to cope with issues of your past, you’ll need to start by embracing feelings of vulnerability.
As told by Inside Out, sadness is an essential part of the recovery process. Social media may portray certain people to appear happy all the time, but this is not reality. You need to show your true colors by getting upset sometimes, even in public, and allow unhappy thoughts to occur if you don’t want to get trapped deeper by your anxiety and depression.
“You are a naturally happy and good person to be around. So don’t rob yourself of those moments that you need to cleanse your hurts from the past. If you find yourself still feeling uncomfortable, just remember that it’s important to be yourself.” - Mind Set (YouTube Channel)
