#best fairytale ever. princess breaks her own curse by loving HERSELF when no one else could
it’s a really good story, because it isn’t that her parents don’t love her, they do, but it’s a conditional love. They are completely preoccupied by the belief that she isn’t the real her. That there is some other her, and if they can find someone to love her then she will finally become that person. But that isn’t the point of the curse. Even if she got married it wouldn’t have broken the spell because that guy was only willing to marry her with the assurance that it would ‘fix’ her. Loving an expectation, and not the person that’s already there, right in front of you.
You have to learn to love yourself for yourself, the good and the bad. And to love others that way as well.
