HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND HE USED HIS REMAINING STRENGTH TO FREE HER… THIS IS HOW YOU OTP
YOUR OTP COULD NEVER
I often see things online about how Eugene should have waited to be saved, then cut her hair, or that he shouldn’t have cut as much, etc. but I feel like those people are missing the entire point.
Ok first of all, Eugene had waited for Rapunzel to heal him, who knows what would have happened, because Mother Gothel could have come and taken her away immediately. He instead makes the selfless decision with the little bit of strength that he has, to risk his own life in order to save Rapunzel. But more importantly: Eugene was selfish his entire life - mainly because nobody was ever looking out for him. He grew up poor and in an orphanage, so he had to be selfish in order to survive, which is why he turned to thieving. This moment is the moment where everything changes. It is the one time in his life that he puts someone else first.
Second: The symbolism behind the fact that he cuts her hair should tell you everything. All of Rapunzel’s life the only person who she ever knew to love her, didn’t actually love her, but she loved her hair. Gothel was always shown looking, talking to and kissing Rapunzel’s hair, and not really ever Rapunzel herself. Eugene, on the other hand, fell in love with Rapunzel the PERSON. He saw her as another human being, and he saw her heart. That is why he cut her hair - her hair didn’t matter to him because the magic was INSIDE her. He knew that and thus knew that even as he died, she would live a happy life because of how beautiful she is on the inside.

the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
Jennifer Shrader Lawrence: One of the Most Inspiring Women In the World
There are many reasons one would choose Jennifer Lawrence as their role model. First of all, at the early age of 20, she was nominated for the Academy Award For Best Actress. Aside from being one of the best actresses the world has known, she is very down to earth. She knows how to make people laugh without even trying, she has a great sense of humor, and she’s not letting the fame get to her head. She’s not at all embrassed when she makes a mistake or says something out of line during interviews, she doesn’t hold anything back (like peeing in the ocean or talking about camel toes) and she still acts like a little kid at times. Not to mention the fact that she tripped and fell on her way to receiving her well-deserved Oscar but getting up, still looking gorgeous and unfazed.
But the reason she’s such an ideal role model for people everywhere is because she’s not only amazingly flawless, she’s also beautiful on the inside. She is confident with the way she looks as she points out in interviews and magazines. Not in the way that she’s bragging because she thinks she’s perfect, but in the way that she’s happy and content and she doesn’t plan on changing anything about herself.
She shows everyone, most especially young boys and girls, who, especially as teenagers might feel very insecure at this time that you don’t need to starve yourself to be happy and that it’s okay to make mistakes. She shows them that you don’t need to conform to what society wants to see; just be your own person.
She teaches us and inspires us to be ourselves.
