Storyboard Text

  • What am I doing wrong?
  • Sophie is a Freshman in college, who has been struggling to fit in.
  • Maybe I shouldn't think about things so much
  • She enjoys hanging out with her friends.
  • But it is important to question things so that I can learn
  • But she notices that everyone around her seems happier than her.
  • If there’s one thing that I know, it’s that I know nothing
  • She tends to overthink. 
  • “A human being in perfection ought always to preserve a calm and peaceful mind, and never to allow passion of a transitory desire to disturb his tranquility” (Shelley 56).
  • “It’s the greatest good for a man to discuss virtue everyday… on the grounds that the unexamined life isn’t worth living” (Plato 55).
  • Student Government Meeting
  • Sophie feels lost, like she doesn't know who she is. (Plato 44).
  • The clearest Way seems obscure; The Way ahead seems to lead backward; The most level Way seems uneven
  • So, she decides to reach out to family and friends.
  • Hi Mom...
  • And get more involved in school activities.
  • Yet she is still finding herself struggling.  (Ivanhoe 44).
  • “Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery,and be overwhelmed by disappointments; yet, when he has retired into himself,he will be like a celestial spirit, that has a halo around him, within whosecircle no grief or folly ventures” (Shelley 29).
  • Self Acceptance
  • After a period of self-doubt, Sophie decides to turn inward.
  • Student Government Meeting
  • Sophie realizes that how she views her friends' happiness, and her own happiness is only a reflection of her own perspective.
  • She realizes that in order to become the most authentic version of herself, she must accept herself for who she is, her flaws, her fears, and her insecurities included.
  • “It turns out that most of life’s greatest difficulties are caused by our own propensity to make our lives more complicated than they need to be. Most of the wounds we suffer are self-inflicted, and only by unlearning what we know and hold most dear can we heal ourselves” (Ivanhoe xxviii).
  • Making changes on the outside, gave Sophie a better college experience, as she made more friends and got more involved in school activities.
  • But ultimately it was the changes she made on the inside that improved her overall experience during this time in her life.
  • Sophie now understands that happiness is a direct result of perspective. Just because others seem happy does not mean they are content on the inside. True happiness comes from within.
