I think standing up for myself is important. I think standing up for others is more important. But standing with others is most important.
I know I am strong.
I am a princess, long may I reign.
I love these kinds of posts because, as many cool OFFICIAL princesses as there are, some of the most influential and inspirational Disney females aren’t official princesses (Mulan being the exception on this set). But I learned a lot more from Esmeralda than I did from Aurora. And a lot more from Nani than Cinderella. Those are the women I want to be like. Those are the women that worked hard, and loved with all their heart, and put others needs before their own.
I have never been happy with the official Princess lineup to be honest. Some of them are amazing, but I feel that there are other characters that deserve to be respected just as much, instead of put in the background. There are characters we can learn so much from, like Nani and Esmeralda, and Kida, and Audrey.
I’m so glad that they are growing in popularity on places like this. Its good to see them get the recognition they deserve.
