The song Let It Go from Frozen has a meaning for her that this author talks about – and how women should just let things that bother them, go!

My daughters love the song ‘Let it go’ from the famous animated movie by Disney, ‘Frozen’. It plays in a loop every evening in my house. Although that is one of the reasons why it has become a favorite number for me, the motivating lyrics created by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and sung by Idina Menzel make me hear it more and more.

While Disney productions make sure that every piece they create has a message for the young and old alike, this Oscar winning song has created an impression on me. I feel like it has been penned down for every woman who never reaches the zenith because of the ‘society’ that she lives in. Here is my message to all such ladies through the lyrics of this song. You just need to let it go!

Hey Woman,

“Don’t let them in, don’t let them see, the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know…”

You don’t know the potential that hides inside you. The ones who cannot see you grow would always discourage your attempts in trying it, forget improvising on it. They would give you examples of how ‘ideal’ daughters, wives and daughters in law keep such things concealed. But there will come a time when you would not be able to suppress it, hide it or mask it any longer. All you need to do is turn away from all that is stopping you from growing it. Just let it go. You would soon realise that the negativities which surrounded you could never have bothered what truly lies underneath you.

“It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can dot o test the limits and break through…”

Once you distance yourself from the cynicism, the minds of those who had always stopped you would seem even smaller. You would realise that your fear was created more by those surrounding you than your own self. Moving apart would hand over the control of your being from your fear to your own hands. This would let you test your capacities without any unwanted rights, wrongs and rules set by those who never had anything to do with your well being. Just let it go. You would be able to withstand any kind of storm once you are your own master and would never feel the need of going back.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

“And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast, I’m never going back, the past is in the past
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn…”

The past is only a past. What you think now would be your present and your future. The powerful thoughts you create would only empower you more. Your revival would mark the dawn of a new chapter of life. A life where you would not seek perfections or try to please any other. These ‘others’ could never have disturbed your true prospects in any way. Just let it go. Once you know that, the light of day would be yours, forever.
