It’s one day after exams and I just finished watching this. I must say that it’s quite a nice show and what I’m reminded of from this show is really “Perspective”.
I’m bad, and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.
This was one of the scenes when all the ‘bad’ characters gathered, joined hands and said this together. I guess there are many of us that leave it to ‘fate’ that we are who we are, and there’s nothing we can do about it; just like these ‘bad’ characters. But really, whether we are good or bad is not determined by the position that we are given (in this case, wreck-it-ralph is given the position to keep wrecking things) and because of that position, how people judge us, but who we really wanna be and we strive to help people see the good person that’s within us. :j
Wreck-it-Ralph desired to be THE good person because he’s always been seen as the bad person in the game he’s in. Even in the game, the people inside judged him and were afraid of him because of his position and his image. So that very desire to be good and to be included by the people in his game made him search for more (the gold medal). That made him go into other games just so he could get the gold medal to prove that he’s good, and because of that, it even caused other games to be destroyed. And because of his desire, he almost even destroyed his own game. So during this whole process, he met this kid in another game called Vanellope, who made him learn to see things in a different light. He went back to his own game in the end, and things changed after that. 🙂
Yknow, there are just too many times that we see things in life as “duties” but we fail to see the importance of us doing it and not neglecting it. Yes, they are our responsibilities, but when we decide to choose to neglect them, simply because we have other (perhaps irrational) desires in mind, how many other people would be affected by our very decision. Work, for example, could be something that we see as a duty. And yes, it is a responsibility. But if we could see things in a different perspective, work could be so much more fun that you might think it is. Wreck-It-Ralph later on enjoyed his ‘work’ as a wrecker because he saw things in a different light. Whenever he lost the game and people had to throw him down the building (which he used to hate), he now liked it because whenever they lift him up, he found joy in the fact that he could see Vanellope from that angle. 🙂
And yes, perhaps we just gotta look at things in life in a slightly different angle so that we could enjoy life a little better.
