Anna, Snow White and Cinderella inspire me to be more forgiving and strong.

Ten years ago, when I was 16, my aunt helped me escape my family’s cult, which is a sect of Christianity that forces women to marry young (mid teens) and have all the babies they can. Over the years, she slowly introduced me to the outside world. My first Disney movie was Cinderella and I almost cried at how innocent and kind everything about the movie was. My family would have found Cinderella “worldly” and “of Satan.” It made me realize how awful my own family was.

I know people don’t think Cinderella is realistic but I watched my now estranged sister follow her dream of leaving our oppressive home mainly because she had a rich guy help her move to a different city and become her financial, familial and emotional support system while I’m still stuck at home with no one to help me leave. I can’t help but wish I had a prince to help me like that now.

I’m very fat so I rarely if ever find Halloween costumes in stores in my size. I actually was able to find a Cinderella costume in my size this year, and I totally felt like a princess at the costume ball! I was the only kiddie character there, but I didn’t give one crap.

The quote “Have courage and be kind” has gotten me through some very difficult times in my life. I no longer have a relationship with my biological father or his side of the family and for a very long time I was bitter about it . Until I had the courage to let go, and the kindness to forgive them for the pain they all caused me, I was finally able to fully move on with my life. I even got it a tattoo of it.

I’ve found myself sympathizing more with cinderella’s stepmother now that my twenty year old stepdaughter acts like I’m abusive because I make her do the dishes.

I find it hard to read facial expressions and voice tones. Disney movies, especially older ones like Cinderella, have helped me improve and figure out what to look for since the character’s faces are very realistic, yet extra expressive. Thanks to them I think that maybe I’m not a useless, hopeless turd.

I love how Anastasia bettered herself as a person and changed her ways towards Cinderella in the sequel, but I hate how she never explicitly apologizes/confronts her for how horribly she treated her all those years. It kind of makes me sad that Cinderella never received the actual apology she deserved.

“No matter how your heart is grieving, If you keep on believing, The dream that you wish will come true” This line is literally the only thing getting me through right now. I relate a lot to Cinderella’s story and I don’t have the financial means to get out of my situation right now. All I have is my hope and Disney gives me that hope.

Cinderella was a good role model for me growing up because she was similar to me as she daydreamed & how much she never gave up hope. Ever since I was four, I’ve had trouble giving any seemingly negative take of Cinderella’s story. I saw the trailers for Cinderella 3, I was upset that it was a “twist in time” and even more upset when I went to school and saw that people all wanted to play this one. They told a lot of the movie to me but exaggerated it for their game and possibly to tease me.
