Frodo: The Ultimate Hardship-Seeker & Why It’s Important For Us

3 min readNov 25, 2022

The Lord of the Rings is an epic high-fantasy novel by English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien. Set in Middle-earth, intended to be Earth at some time in the distant past, a group of humans, dwarfs and elves set out on a journey to destroy the ring to rule them all and therefore forever banish the evil out of this world.

During their travels, the fellowship encounters all sorts of puzzles, intrigues and literal fights to the death. Sounds pretty meh, to be honest.

I can’t think of many instances where Frodo suddenly went:

“Oh, I really enjoy this ride with my fellas through Mordor. Everywhere there lurks danger, a bald version of myself in 50 years is following us around and we have no clue how to get to our goal. It’s lovely”

And he has every right to be shattered and depressed because of the situation he’s in and the burden he has to carry weighs on his shoulders tremendously.

I argue, however, that there couldn’t have happened a better chain of events for him and his fellowship.

And I’ll explain why in a second after we take a look at this amazing camera shot.

Frodo catching the ring of Sauron, oh god what is this dumb fool doing?
