  • You're melting.”

  • Some people are worth melting for.”

  • When we think of the wordfrozen,” some negative associations come to mind.

  • The word can mean paralyzed, stuck, repressed.

  • We think of phrases likefrozen with fear.”

  • Fear will be your enemy.”

  • But within the Disney film,

  • Frozen also takes on a positive, creative connotation.

  • Ice is my life!”

  • Yes, frozenness causes fear and isolation,

  • but it can also foster life and express love.

  • An act of true love will thaw a frozen heart."

  • In the story, Ice symbolizes the challenges

  • that life relentlessly throws at us.

  • But Frozen shows us that it isn't the ice itself that's negative;

  • it's that we often choose to react to the ice

  • in a counter productive way.

  • [Shouting] “Monster!

  • Monster!”

  • When we're faced with a problem,

  • we can retreat into our crippling, anxious, self-doubting thoughts

  • and shut out the world.

  • Or, we can face adversity with compassion and trust in ourselves.

  • [Singing] “Here I stand, in the light of day!”

  • So whilefrozen,” at the beginning of the movie

  • might mean freezing up and feelingparalyzed,”

  • At the end, Elsa learns to redefineFrozen:”

  • To mean accepting yourself for who you are

  • and facing challenges with emotional strength.

  • [Singing] “When I finally do what frozen things do, in Summer!!”

  • “I'm going to tell him.”

  • Don't you dare!”

  • Before we go on,

  • The characters in Frozen talk about ice in two opposing ways throughout the movie:

  • as an obstacle to be melted

  • It's okay you can just unfreeze it.”

  • No I can't, I don't know how.”

  • or as something valuable that can be mined.

  • [Singing] “A frozen heart worth mining.”

  • When Anna's is struck by Elsa's powers and her heart is frozen,

  • we're told that melting Anna's heart is the only way to save her.

  • Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart.”

  • In this case, the ice has been put in Anna's heart artificially.

  • It doesn't represent an actual part of her identity.

  • Because the ice is alien to her warm and caring nature,

  • it creates a real threat.

  • The ice is melted, destroyed by the emotional warmth

  • of the true love she shows in risking her life for her sister.

  • You sacrificed yourself for me?”

  • “I love you.”

  • But warmth and melting aren't the only ways to confront a “frozen heartin the movie.

  • Before Anna's heart is literally frozen,

  • Elsa is the one with the metaphorically frozen heart.

  • She's cold and distant, and refuses to open up to her sister.

  • Anna understands that the way to get through Elsa's cold exterior

  • isn't to thaw and melt the ice, but to mine it.

  • [Singing] “I'm right out here for you, just let me in.”

  • Like the miners at the beginning of the movie,

  • Anna knows that the ice surrounding Elsa's heart shouldn't be destroyed,

  • because it's a part of who Elsa is.

  • Your power will only grow.

  • There is beauty in it.”

  • Anna wants to understand her sister,

  • and appreciate her frozenness for what it is.

  • You don't have to protect me.

  • I'm not afraid!”

  • Taking the care of digging through Elsa's frozen exterior,

  • instead of trying to get rid of it,

  • will unearth a deeper treasure within.

  • “[Singing] The cold never bothered me anyway.”

  • There are many of aspects of life that aren't how we'd like them to be.

  • They're out of our control.

  • And that's how Elsa's powers feel to her.

  • But she spends most of her life responding to her ice powers with fear.

  • Her reaction to what's difficult is

  • to completely repress and ignore her emotions.

  • [Singing] “Conceal, don't feel.

  • Don't let them know!”

  • So she becomes totally isolated.

  • Growing up, Elsa's distance causes Anna a lot of emotional pain.

  • [Singing] “We used to be best buddies.

  • And now we're not.

  • I wish you would tell me why!”

  • But Elsa continues to overlook this

  • because she's more afraid of hurting her sister physically.

  • Elsa, wait!”

  • No, I'm just trying to protect you.”

  • Like trying to put off any problem,

  • the approach of freezing up can only work for so long.

  • Elsa's holding in her feelings becomes unsustainable.

  • So when she can't contain her emotion, after learning of her sister's sudden engagement,

  • Elsa accidentally unleashes her powers, too.

  • Then, duringLet It Go,”

  • there's a shift in the way Elsa handles her powers.

  • One of the first things Elsa does in this scene

  • is create Olaf.

  • Now that her powers are set free,

  • her first instinct is to recreate a happy memory from her childhood.

  • In this moment, Elsa begins to face her problems in a healthy way

  • Olaf is brought to life with all the warmth and sisterly love

  • that's represented in that memory.

  • “I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs!”

  • One of the things that makes this scene so great is

  • that it's the first time we see Elsa begin to take something

  • she's always seen as negative-- her ice powers--

  • and turn that into a positive source of creativity.

  • Elsa runs away so that she can express her powers

  • without inhibition.

  • [Singing] “Let it Go

  • Butletting it go,” completely, doesn't work, either.

  • She's still isolated, separated from all the people in her life.

  • [Singing] “A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen.”

  • And she unintentionally freezes all of Arendelle.

  • [Singing] “Arendelle is in deep, deep, deep, snow”.

  • So when we totally let go all control,

  • we can create consequences that hurt others,

  • even when we don't mean to.

  • When Elsa realizes that her way of coping is causing others pain,

  • she falls into despair.

  • [Singing] “I'm such a fool, I can't be free.”

  • And at her lowest point, her worst fear is actualized

  • as she inadvertently strikes Anna with her powers.

  • Elsa's negative thoughts consume her again,

  • and they manifest literally as her powers slip from her control

  • in the form of a blizzard.

  • So we see Elsa's whole pattern repeat all over again:

  • stress from external factors we can't control can cause cyclical, defeatist thoughts,

  • which in turn lead to damaging behaviors.

  • It takes the extreme consequence of actually hurting Anna

  • for Elsa to finally confront her choices and flip from her fear-based approach to the

  • ice,

  • which clearly isn't working,

  • to a love-based one.

  • Love will thaw.

  • Love, of course.”

  • Frozen shows us that we have a choice --

  • we can face the ice, or challenges, in our lives with fear

  • or with love.

  • When Hans tells Elsa that Anna is dead,

  • the previously uncontrollable storm Elsa created suddenly stops.

  • Elsa's worst fear has been made a reality,

  • so her panic over controlling her powers subsides.

  • For the first time, she's able feel only love for her sister,

  • and grief over the possibility of her death.

  • She's unclouded by crippling anxiety and self-consciousness.

  • So if you face life's icy situations with love and understanding,

  • things are suddenly more in your control than you thought they could be.

  • It was never the ice itself that was dangerous,

  • but Elsa's response to it.

  • Her negative thoughts turn her powers into something menacing.

  • But if she reframes her powers as a positive thing,

  • she can learn to control them in a balanced way.

  • Ice in our lives can turn out to be positive.

  • When Anna is frozen, this appears like a momentary death,

  • as the ice in Anna's heart poisons her whole body.

  • But at the same time, it's becoming frozen that saves her.

  • If Anna hadn't had the ice in her heart,

  • Hans's sword would have hit her and presumably killed her.

  • So in this pivotal scene, the movie emphasizes how ice can,

  • counterintuitively, be strong and helpful,

  • it can even shield and protect us.

  • The symbolism is that challenges and hard things in our lives,

  • can actually be good for us,

  • if we learn to face them with openness and emotional bravery.

  • So as we've seen, in Frozen, ice isn't good or evil.

  • It can be an insurmountable obstacle or a spectacularly creative force,

  • depending on the attitude we take.

  • Likewise, the challenges that arise in our lives aren't inherently bad or good--

  • “I've been impaled.”

  • [Chuckles]

  • they may actually be the key to unlocking our better selves.

  • Through its nuanced ice symbolism, Frozen creates a useful narrative

  • for anyone struggling with depression, anxiety, self-acceptance,

  • or just trying to overcome a problem.

  • Ice becomes a way to visually depict that our thoughts can have a real impact

  • on our external lives.

  • In the end, beingfrozenis only bad

  • if we let our fears control us.

  • But if we take control, and fill our winter wonderlands with love,

  • there's nothing wrong with feeling Frozen all year long.

  • [Singing] “The cold never bothered me anyway.”
