I’ve suffered from a lot of child abuse & mental health issues ever since I was a kid and I’ve never really had the chance to get any help for it since I’m not 18 yet which makes it difficult for me to work hard towards my goals of being a published author and professional singer. I know my dreams are unlikely & unrealistic, but movies like Cinderella, Tangled, & Princess and The Frog give me hope that someday the dreams that I wish will come true.
first ever Disney movie that my mom showed me was Cinderella, and I was obsessed
with her. She really helped go through tough moments. She would always
represent that in hard and painful situations you have to have hope and be kind to others and have a lot of courage which is sometimes hard… but the
good always comes back to you.
I recently met Fairy Godmother at Disneyland, A small girl rushed in front of me to meet her and I smiled and waited for her to finish before I approached Fairy Godmother. She held my hand and told me I was just a sweet as Cinderella. I will never ever forget that.
Cinderella, Snow White, and Aurora inspire me so much. I thank Disney for creating the original three that started it all, who paved the way with their inner strength, grace, and kindness. Their flaws and limitations make them feel like real women I know who have been held back or abused in some way. They taught me not achieving huge things doesn’t make you weak. I think people should be careful not to set the bar too high for little girls then belittle them for not meeting it.
I was so excited to meet the Princesses at Disneyland on my first ever visit this month, but none of them seemed to want to talk to me. It was so disappointing knowing the friends of Cinderella and Snow White just seemed so uncomfortable talking with a 22 year old woman, and i tried so hard to overcome social anxiety to talk to them.
I’ve always been one to have my head in the clouds and have unrealistic expectations. But whenever I listen to “So Much More Than a Dream” from Cinderella 3, I keep reminding myself that reality is better and there are possibilities for me out there.
Cinderella has been my favorite princess since I was a child. Im very similar to her. Kind to a fault and a dreamer but a bit of a pushover. Just like Cinderella was treated horribly, I too was treated horribly by my “friends” and was excluded and bullied by them. Even though I look back at what they did to me and sometimes feel bitter about it, Cinderella’s story has instead taught me to not let the cruelty of others turn me into a bitter and spiteful person. I’ve forgiven them
