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