Even though it got a lot of hate from the start, I thought it might be interesting. The trailers were okay, but I guess people really don't like it (I haven't seen it).

I suppose my hatred, besides the thought put out by the producers that emojis are future of language and will forever be timeless, which is both philosophical bollocks and completely unsubstantiated (Not to mention I see a future where words as being entirely or mostly replaced by such symbols as accompanying a decline in intellectual thought for the most part), I also dislike the "be yourself" moral.

It is essential lesson in life that has been beaten over my head more often than the greatness in friendship in Fairy Tail. Honestly, I have gotten sick of this notion from hearing too much about it from everywhere, and the only children's movie I can say that does this to a great extent is perhaps The Incredibles, and that movie has a plot invoking of many larger themes in general.

Things like Inside Out, I could appreciate for trying to tell a more niche and under-told lesson to its audience, but "be yourself" is to put it, a hackneyed lesson anyone can go to and think up, precisely because it is already deeply inbred in society. I am actually largely surprised there would be a movie that still has this as it moral, since we are inundated with this type of thought.

In essence, because of how often we hear of it, it becomes generic, cliche, whatever you want to call it, and this act of creativity is nothing more than a 10 second thought.

I cannot believe I am irritated over this. The movie might not be so bad, really. I have not seen it for myself, but I just believe that is the least creative moral.

And honestly, it's not even a very good moral. What if your current self isn't good enough? I mean, what if you're an asshole? Can you just be an asshole and say, "hey I'm just being myself?" Or if you're stupid, should you just stop studying and trying to learn just because you're stupid? Hell no. That's unacceptable to me. Personally, I think we should all be striving to be better than our current selves. Without constant growth we stagnate as people and telling people to "be themselves" is the same thing to me as saying don't bother trying to be someone else. Don't bother growing or maturing as a person.

Yes, everyone is an individual and we should accept people as they are, but we should also encourage them to strive for something better.
