Loss/Rejection

Watch the following video from Toy Story 2.

Toy Story 2 “When She Loved Me” Sarah McLachlan 1999

This clip is from Toy Story 2. And if you think this is about a toy and her owner, think again. This is about a child growing up. And the perspective of the toy is the perspective of the parent. In the beginning, mom and dad are laughing and playing with the child as if nothing else exists in the universe. But then one day the parents are forced to watch from a distance while their daughter becomes a teenager and makes friends. And eventually one day, the parents will look through a window while their little girl who is now a young woman drives away to college.
