I'm a teenager and I've gotten really into shows for kids latley but they're giving me a reason to live and my family and friends make me feel bad for it
No shows are ‘for kids’. Even Disney movies have references for adults, as well as adult messages. Take Zootopia for example… on the outside it was an adorable kids movie, but deep down it was a very striking message about judgement. All forms of entertainment are meant to be watched by adults. It doesn’t matter if theyre aimed ‘at children’, they’re still beautifully written and complex.
In fact, if you think about it… a lot of ‘kids’ shows/movies are far deeper than adult shows. I’d much rather see a movie about having fun with your friends and getting into trouble with a hidden message about love, compassion, and kindness, than another movie about a super hero that has been remade a dozen times, just to watch the special effects and action scenes.
My deepest apologies that they’re trying to make you feel bad for it, nonny. But it’s not something you should feel bad for. Any reason to live is a good one. And forms of media are always a wonderful way to cope if you feel connected to them, so long as you avoid things that are triggering.
