Life Lessons From The Wizard of Oz

So I’ve been on this old childhood movie kick lately and last night I watched the Wizard of Oz.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this movie, but this time I decided to watch it from a “grown-up” perspective.

As the storyline goes, four strangers meet and set out on an adventure with a dog to be granted things they were wishing for, but already possessed.

The Scarecrow wanted brains, but throught the movie used common sense and ingenuity to get everyone out of various situations.  The Tin Man wanted a heart but displayed sincere care and compassion to all.  The Cowardly Lion put himself in harms way when Dorothy was captured by the Wicked Witch.  And Dorothy?  Well, she just wanted to go home and she was home the entire time – she just didn’t know because of a little bump on the head.

  1. If I am to be myself, the way I feel and think daily then no one would want to be around me and so I try to make myself fit so as not to be alone, but the reality is I have no close friends and have decided that at my age and with the condition I have it’s really best for me because it helps make me less anxious when I don’t have to try to fit in. Sometimes we have to accept ourselves just as we are even if it means accepting that for the most part people are not going to want to be around you. I’ve gotten the message enough to know it and know enough about myself to know I am better when I mostly keep to myself without anyone ever getting too close.
