Remember, each of the girls was given a sticky note pad with markers. Again they were asked to write one word or phrase, describing what they thought about when thinking about princesses, per sticky note. Since our world isn’t overly full of real royalty, I encouraged the girls to include their ideas of literary princesses and Disney/movie princesses. When everyone was finished the sticky notes were collected and sorted.
So what did I find…
Pretty Singers Pursued
Sought After Fought for
Looked up to Adored
Many of the girls had the same or similar to the things listed above so I have simplified.
I wasn’t sure what kinds of things were going to be listed here. I was sure that there would be far less than there were in the positive column.
Ditsy Doesn’t Listen
In truth, I think these girls thought about more negatives than I would have been able to think of on my own.
It seems that most of us still want to live the charmed lives of princesses. We see in them all the things that we lack in ourselves. We also see greater amounts of positives than negatives. Let’s compare this to what we learned last time about how we see ourselves.
Time to Compare
As women, most of us see more negatives in ourselves than we do positives. However, we see more positives in princesses than we do negatives. We so desperately want to see ourselves as princesses. After all princesses have no problems and are seemingly perfect in every way! Why wouldn’t we want to be princesses? Here’s the surprise….we are princesses!
