A friend of mine has a granddaughter, who refers to herself as, “a self-rescuing princess.”
This young lady really stands on her own two feet. She likes who she is, without needing a boyfriend to do that.
Oh, how different this is from myriads of women, now and in the past.
We get it from all sides, too: Advertisements, books, movies, TV shows….
Again, this isn’t new. When I was growing up, having a boyfriend and looking forward to marriage was the Number One objective for girls. A career was definitely secondary. Moreover, her worth and popularity were directly related to whom she dated. Not to have a boyfriend was to be in the “less than” crowd.
I have great hope for the Self-Rescuing Princess. I say she’ll go a long way because her experience of herself is coming from the inside out. May other young women join her!
