What Disney’s Frozen Can Teach Us About Mental Illness

I know a lot of us are sick of hearing “Let it Go” from Disney’s movie Frozen.  But when you listen to it, it really has some interesting lyrics.  I read this article a few weeks ago, and after reading it I decided to actually listen to the lyrics of the song instead of being irritated by the constant playing of it on the radio and kids singing it at the movie theatre and stores.  I thought, “Wow!
