Ogre life lessons 101

Ogre life lessons 101

Everything you need to know about life, you’ve probably learned from the movies you watched growing up.

If you really dig deep into the Pixar, Disney and DreamWorks movies, you can learn so much about life; things such as friendship, love and even why you shouldn’t judge an ogre by it’s cover.  

For me, I learned all the important things about life from a great little movie called “Shrek.”

Friendships are made throughout your entire life. Friends are important to have by your side. In the movie, Donkey is Shrek’s best friend. In the beginning, Shrek is ruthless to Donkey and doesn’t want anything to do with him. Soon they both realize that they need each other. Friends can help you get through struggles and make you feel like you belong. 

Love is also showcased in the movie Shrek. Fiona is locked in a castle and Shrek goes to save her. Fiona is disappointed when a big green ogre comes to the rescue. She was expecting a handsome prince. Princess Fiona then gets to know Shrek and she falls in love. It is important to surround yourself with people who make you feel loved. There is always someone out there for you and sometimes it’s the one you don’t expect it to be. 

Many people are so quick to judge a person based on their looks. Almost all the characters throughout this movie judged Shrek and jumped to the conclusion that he was a mean and scary ogre. Turns out, he was not that at all. He went on an adventure to save the princess and he lived happily ever after. It’s important to get to know someone before you pass judgement. 

You never know how much you can learn from a simple and fun movie like Shrek. So go grab some popcorn and your friends, and take the time to watch this movie full of life lessons. You just might learn something.
