I’m an older guy and I cried.

The story of Cinderella is flawless. There’s not a single thing wrong or missing. All is essential here, all necessary. Cinderella was a royal because she thought herself to be. She had faith. She was a good and faithful servant, and I have much to learn from her. We all do.

Not bad but nothing special

Reader good, adaptation not great prefer more classical adaptations and of course the not very kid friendly original.

Codependency Abounds!

Pardon my cranky review. I am freshly out of a dangerous and destructive marriage.

Before I begin, I thought this performance was brilliant! And I’m sure the story is fairly accurate to its original form.

However, I’m realizing just how empowered Cinderella could have been. It was *her* home, surrounded by neighbors who knew both *her father and herself.* Could she not have moved to a friend’s house? Or at the very least, sew two sets of clothes for herself, bathe and change into clean clothes every morning, wash the dirty clothes and let them dry for the next morning? Could she not have hired out in other peoples’ homes? Earned money to buy her own place? I’m certain she could have survived on her own, since she knew how to garden, sew, start a fire, cook, clean, care for animals…she was the one in power, and the others kept her from seeing it at all.

I’m angry because I see so much of the old me in this story: “Please let me go to the ball!” “Okay. I’ll clean out the lentils from the ashes just to play by your ever-changing rules that always tilt power in your favor.” “Please, fairy godmother, my clothes are dirty, and nobody’s here to stop me from going to borrow a dress (that was likely my dress that my sister stole from me), wear it, and return home before anyone noticed.” “Please, somebody rescue me!”

Maybe it’s just being so freshly out of an abusive relationship that has me riled up. It appears I need to find or write new renditions of fairy tales. It’s about time that the princess stories we listen to enough to eventually believe are at least empowering.

Sorry for the angry rant. I’m tired of the narrative that we bright, strong, capable women need to be given permission by an insecure oppressor (male or female) to be rescued. We need to rescue ourselves, be kind and compassionate to others in the process (so we don’t *become* the evil step mother in other people’s lives), forgive, but don’t rescue those who have abused their power, and learn healthy boundaries. That way we’re good examples of successful healthy relationships.

Here’s to a healthy, bright, empowered future for everyone! God bless you!

My Granddaughters really enjoyed Cinderella

My Granddaughters had a great time listening to Cinderella on Audible and while they like the video better, they enjoy this also.
