I watched Frozen II with my 5 year old nieces for the third time and the only song they sang along to this time around was “The Next Right Thing” sycjsklbcy are they ok
“The Next Right Thing” from Frozen 2 but it’s Ahsoka Tano
Two nights ago I was frustrated. Bored. Sex-less. Depressed. My mind was going crazy reading status update after update on Facebook about my peers and how they felt, like I couldn’t turn off the switch in my head although it was upsetting me. Another friend invited me to join local-causes, group pages for the virus so we can stick together as a community and help one another during shortages. Just all the news and being cooped up in my house was driving me angry and mad. Tons of self-loathing has also been occurring. Mountains. And fear and anxiety are still present but under wraps. In fact, I scoffed in the face of anxiety; talking about why should I still even video chat a therapist anymore who barely listens and just tells me to wash my hands. It doesn’t help. I was so mad.
He told me I still had to go. He is right. I need to talk to her this week.
Hours later he came downstairs and to my side of the bed and hovered over me, grazing my arm. I started to cry because of the uncertainty of this whole situation. Still mad. I keep telling myself there is no answer. I know this. We only have the best solutions possible and even that’s hard. But I want it to be over with already. I want peace again. I want the nausea and anxiety to stop and be able to live again and see friends. Everyone does.
He plopped onto the bed and held me. “There definitely is uncertainty. Things are changing very fast day to day and the world differs each time (Something’s aren’t suppose to change, but they do). We’re in the unknown (into it) and we don’t know what lies ahead. We won’t know the outcome of this until it’s all over.. even though it will be bad. But we’ve got to keep pushing and (do the next right thing) doing and surviving. Being home and kept indoors is actually us doing our part in the world and we’re safe. It will all be alright in the end (come here).”
[The next day we had an earthquake. First I’ve ever felt in my life. He lugged the chairs from the table for us to readily crawl under but it stopped in time, luckily. My legs were shaking with a minor anxiety attack, afterwards… why 2020?]
okay so my last post about this may have been confusing because I was on the verge of suicide. And it’s scary, I know.
But lately, nothing seems worthwhile and I feel like I’m bringing down everyone around me.
but as I was laying in my bed with a bottle of pills, i realized that the tiniest things that I do can impact people in a good way. Every time I play my favorite song, I’m not being selfish by listening to music that no one else likes, I’m doing the artist a favor by streaming their song. Every time I pet my dog, I’m not using him as a way to make myself happy, I’m scratching the place behind his ears that he can never reach himself. Every time I paint, I’m not wasting resources and putting shit into the world, I’m expressing opinions that others can relate to.
If you feel like everything you do is shit, think about the impact on others and do the next right thing.
Frozen 2 is a kid’s movie with a cheesy plot and music, but it saved my life last night.
As someone who is depressed and suicidal, I’m with a lot of you guys on this app. We’re in this together. So just in case the world becomes too much for you guys, play ‘the next right thing’ and you can see the good in you.
Just do the next right thing
Take a step, step again
It is all that I can to do
The next right thing
I won’t look too far ahead
It’s too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath, this next step
This next choice is one that
I can make
The Next Right Thing: Anna (Frozen II)
Dispite your thoughts on Frozen too, I hope we can all agree that the words to Anna song were sooo deep and meaningful. Even though we sometimes feel like laying down and giving up… we must take that one step, and do the next right thing.
I always liked Anna as a character but I think here she really showed her strength; to continue on when she could have ‘succumbed to the darkness’.
I’m gonna say it
I know that it might be hard to hear but..
THE NEXT RIGHT THING IS BETTER THAN SHOW YOURSELF
There I said it
I watched Frozen 2 and I have some feels, man. The song, ‘The Next Right Thing’ inspired me to write this. That and angsty RP.
It was quiet in the infirmary. Raise had just finished shaving his brother’s face, carefully wiping away any excess water off his face. Fell breathed quietly as he pulled away the towel, and Raise watched him for a moment. He couldn’t look at the other bed. His love lay wrapped in soft blankets he had brought from home, hoping against hope that maybe something familiar would bring her some comfort, even though she lay motionless, unaware of the world burning down around her.
I know this was kind of The Point but “The Next Right Thing” was such a good song about grief. The whole song could be taken out of context and it would still be incredibly meaningful. That scene is so raw and painful and dark and beautiful; I felt like it captured the heaviness of grief and the struggle of learning how to move forward, one step at a time, so well.
Today’s random thought of the day: Has anyone written a fic based off of "The Next Right Thing" from Frozen 2, with Tsubasa singing this about Kanade? Because… I need it. ಡ_ಡ
My brain is constantly singing “The Next Right Thing” from Frozen 2, but instead of the full song, it’s just the depressing bit at the start, and that’s how i feel life is going at the moment.
“Or we could be trapped here until you die and I give up.”
Who’d’a thought it’d be the other way around.
