Quote: "Cinderella didn't ask for a prince. She asked for a dress and a night off" - Kiera Cass
As a kid I always illustrated Cinderella. Thinking back - I never drew the prince. I drew Cinderella, her room, her dress, her carriage, her shoes... What I liked about Cinderella was that she was so kind regardless of what was happening around her.
I have worked with at risk youth for many years and one of the biggest obstacles for these females - is understanding that they don't need some one to "complete" them or make them feel "worthy."
When we take the time to grow on our own (as an individual), we learn to accomplish things on our own, we learn about ourselves, we become strong, our voice becomes clearer - we learn that we are just enough as ourselves. We then can go into a relationship as one full part instead of two broken parts coming together.
Regardless of what was happening to Cinderella, she was positive, grateful, kind, and she held onto hope and trust....
