I think everyone grew up watching Disney cartoons. Always a beautiful princess who got swept off her feet by a handsome prince and lived “Happily Ever After.” Sasha Emmons shows us what life might look like afterward for these princesses.
This reminded me of a friend who was perpetually looking for the “Happily Ever After” she read about in romance novels. Of course, life happened, again and again, and got in the way of that. She ended up not getting even the happy part, and she might have been okay if she wasn’t looking from someone to rescue her from all her problems.
The message the media still sends out — we see it in film, in magazines, and on the cover of books — is that women just need to be beautiful and that will solve everyone’s problems. We can’t all look like airbrushed models. Nor can we all stay 20 forever.
