#8 The Labyrinth (the movie)
Could it be that The Labyrinth is
just one big metaphor for anxiety?
That Sarah has to navigate
A seemingly endless series of dead ends and narrow passages
To free herself from a Goblin King
Who has no power over her.
Toby, her baby brother,
represents herself as unencumbered being.
And her friends
Who she has pushed away
Are only needed once she is free.
Maybe it's more about addiction
As Jareth is a powerful
and enticing creature
But so dangerous.
Loving him means demise
And losing him means you watch the world you built
crumble into blackness.
Maybe Sarah is addicted to her anxiety.
She needs the isolation that it brings
but knows that it's unhealthy.
