What’s a better way of resolving Cinderella’s Problem?
I have often identified with Cinderella. She gets just one brief night of fantasy at The Royal Ball where she falls in love with the Handsome Prince, and he likewise falls in love with her. But then she must return to her life of Poverty and Rejection.
The Resolution of That Story depends upon the Handsome Prince.
Fortunately for Cinderella, the Handsome Prince feels her loss deeply. He cannot live without her, determines to find her no matter the cost, and makes her his wife. Happily ever after.
- But what if the Problem is not her life of Poverty and Rejection?
- What if the Problem is the false identity she has accepted?
- What if the Problem is how she sees herself?
- As a woman with no value?
Resolving Cinderella’s Problem
Rather than wait for the Prince to rescue her, she would be a Wise Woman to discover her True Identity.
Which – by the way – would make it a lot easier for the Handsome Prince to find her because she would be in plain sight rather than hiding – or being hidden by the lies that have surrounded her. A Double Win!!
