I use to love going to the beach every year as a kid and pretend I was Ariel. I still have fond memories of those days.

I knew I was interested in women because of the Little Mermaid. I saw Ursula, and was like, “oh, well….I think I like girls too”

I used to watch The Little Mermaid and The Little Mermaid II on repeat as a kid and now I realized why I loved it so much. I was bullied a lot as a kid and I felt like I didn’t belong where I was and wished to live somewhere else, just like Ariel and Melody. It’s weird to realize that after years of just singing along and enjoying it.

When I was a kid The Little Mermaid was my absolute favorite movie. I would watch it all the time, along with the sequel (never watched the other one though). The idea of mermaids and everything made me so happy, but like most children things, I grew out of it. I completely forgot about my love for it until my high school did The Little Mermaid as their spring musical and immediately my love for it was rekindled.

I never liked The Little Mermaid movie, but I actually do enjoy the music and listen to the songs almost daily and I cry every time on the Little Mermaid ride.

Part of Your World hits close to home for me because of my Complex PTSD. It’s like trauma, fear, pain, etc. is the only “world” I’ve ever known; I feel so estranged from a normal/healthy “world”, and yet I long for it so much. TLM isn’t my favorite Disney movie overall, but that particular song just speaks to me so much.

When I was in preschool, there was this Ariel doll that I always wanted to play with, but someone always beat me to it, and whenever I asked the teacher if I could have it, she was all like “wait your turn.” I never once got to play with that Ariel doll. As an adult, I have five Ariel dolls, the jewel of my collection being the Fairytale Designer set with her and Eric. I fully admit that I am being petty, and I own it.
