My Inner Princess

Out of all the Disney Princesses, Cinderella is the one that I relate to the most.  We were both abused.  Yet neither of us ever complained or told anyone else.  Instead we sang songs that made our hearts feel lighter.   Not that I condone not speaking up, because I do believe that people should reach outContinue reading “My Inner Princess”
