Thank you. Thank bạn for being pretty much the only realistic portrayal of tình yêu in mainstream media in the last- oh, I don’t know- at least five years.
Thank bạn for hiển thị that Hans, the handsome gallant prince of the Southern Isles who seemed a perfect match for Anna is fallible. Thank bạn for hiển thị that the idea of a “one perfect match” isn’t necessarily realistic. Thank bạn for hiển thị us that tình yêu is like with Kristoff, how everyone has their rough edges, how no one can fit the mold of perfection. Thank bạn for reminding us that “everyone’s a bit of a fixer-upper, that’s what it’s all about!” And, especially, thank bạn for saying clearly that “people don’t really change.” Thank bạn for being so clear in that tình yêu is about accepting people, especially their flaws, and not finding someone who fits an ideal.
But most of all, thank you, Olaf, for giving pretty much the only sane definition of tình yêu any media has được trao in too, too long. Thank bạn for telling us “Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours” in an age of “The best tình yêu of all is loving yourself,” “You have to tình yêu yourself before bạn can tình yêu others,” and “You have to provide for yourself before bạn can provide for someone else.” Thank bạn for reminding us that tình yêu is selfless. Thank bạn for the fact that little boys and girls will watch Nữ hoàng băng giá and hear that tình yêu is about consciously making someone else thêm important and not about making sure you’re fulfilled above all else. Thank bạn for the truth bạn gave us that the world has tried so hard to deny. Thank bạn for reminding us that tình yêu is, above all, sacrifice.
