Cinderella was my favorite movie, when I was a child. I aspired to be like her. A kind person who took care of the people she loved. And of course being a romantic I hoped I would meet my prince charming one day, and become a princess:)
Now that I am all grown up, I still believe that you should treat people the way you want to be treated yourself. And be kind to people. But more important I have realised that you have to be kind to yourself as well. Take care of yourself too. I am still working on that.
Today I saw Cinderella again for the first time in years, and I remembered reading an analysis of Cinderella many years ago. Where the author saw Cinderella as the good side of a person and the stepmother and stepsisters as the dark/bad sides of a person. And that the story tells that you should always aspire to be good, but also be aware of the bad sides of your personality.
