    Why You Should Watch ‘Inside Out 2’

    ‘Inside Out 2’ still

    ‘Inside Out‘ was an experience that was relatable to a lot of people. It deals with basic emotions in mind and how they control our day-to-day actions. The story deals with a girl named Riley. ‘Inside Out 2’ continues Riley’s story from the point where she hits puberty.

    It focuses on the emotions and mood swings an individual goes through during adolescence. Moreover, a new kind of emotion which was anxiety was also introduced that mostly governed Riley’s major emotions. She dissociated herself from her old memories and wanted to create a new self. She wanted to look cooler and adjust to her new classmates. And the idea of being rejected made her more panicky, hence she used to pretend.

    The movie might be relatable to all the teenagers who have gone through this phase but it also teaches us something. Riley’s anxiety and the fear of being rejected made her more concerned about the other people in the world, and she started to embody things that she wasn’t. She used to think how everything might possibly go wrong in her life. Like all Disney movies, everything works out well in the end, but we should also take the lesson of being our authentic self, and eventfully everything works out in the end.
