Helen of Troy reflection
What is meant to be, will always find its way. This is one of the realities in life that we must accept. We can’t avoid fate or destiny but we must be ready in facing it.
In the movie, the kingdom Troy wasn’t able to stop the prediction of the king’s daughter that the kingdom will be burnt out because of Paris because no matter how they sent Paris away, destiny found his way back home. A tragic event happened but at the end, Helen kept her faith that someday, she and Paris will be together again in heaven. This shows how fate plays a big part in people’s lives.
As I reflect to it, there was a time in my life that maybe it was a choice but I believe, it was a sort of my destiny. At the young age, I became a mother and everybody knows, it is not easy- a lifetime responsibility. I undergone depression, disappointments, hardships to the point I almost quit but eventually, I learned how to happy with it and stay strong all the time. Sacrifice is always beside me and I should learn to embrace it with positive thoughts and strong heart. I can see how Helen tried to stop the war, how she just loved and how her innocence gave her so much sufferings but in the end like Helen, I can still stand and face the world all over again.
HELEN OF TROY REACTION
As I watched the movie, I was amazed how the King commanded to throw his son at the mountain but later on, I understand that he was just protecting the entire kingdom against the prediction that Paris will be the cause of Troy to be burnt out.
When Paris came back to Troy, I got disappointed that the King did not believe the prediction of his daughter anymore and put his kingdom at risk. I hate how the King let Helen in and sacrifice...
