My mother also acts a lot like Mother Gothel. She tells me that I am too insecure, I would never survive in the world on my own, I am too kind and forgiving that the world will destroy me. I am too chubby, too quiet, and too naive for anyone to ever want to date, love, ou marry me. She says how she is so much prettier than me and that I am too messy and dress too casually to stand out and have a relationship. My mother says that she knows what is best for me.
This is so similar to what Mother Gothel says to Rapunzel “Sloppy, underdressed,” “Gullible, naïve,” “I see a strong, confident beautiful young lady. Oh look, you’re here, too.” I felt an instant connection to Rapunzel the first time I saw Tangled. My mother loves me, though, and she does so much for me. I have honestly started to feel that I won't be able to find l’amour ou live on my own. I know that Rapunzel did leave, so there is still hope for me, but I feel dependent on my mother and want to please her.
I even chose a college major to please her, but it wasn't my dream, and I finally started breaking free like Rapunzel did when she went to chase after her dream of seeing the lanterns and when I switched my major out of healthcare to become an elementary school teacher. I hope one jour I can really leave "my tower," find my prince, and have my happily ever after like Rapunzel did. For now I am left, “wondering when will my life begin?”
In the meantime, Rapunzel and Raiponce has donné me hope and a character that inspires me and I can relate to.
Thank toi for being so welcoming and giving me an outlet to feel comfortable enough to share things that are very personal to me.
I hope toi have a great rest of the week.
