We are girls… women… but even so, we always like to think of ourselves as Princesses…
I might be wrong, and I can only speak for myself.
I do think of myself as a Princess.
I’m a Daydreamer. I still believe I deserve to be treated like a Princess.
Every little girl wants to be cared for, craves for affection and attention.
Does it change that much as you grow up?
Is it not something you still crave for, even as a grown woman?
Some might say Princesses are fragile… well… aren’t we fragile when it comes to Love?
Don’t we get easily hurt if we’re not treated with respect, tenderness, caring, mindfulness? Don’t we love all those sweet words? Small thoughtful gestures that show us how appreciated we are?
And nevertheless, we are strong enough.
Being strong and sweet don’t need to collide at all. They should co-exist. Each context of life demands a different side of you.
You do need to be strong to live your life, to face everyday challenges.
To face stress at work, mean people, health issues, financial issues, family issues, heartbreaks… You need to be so strong… Even to hold your relationship through the hard times or to make a decision of letting it go.
So we are all very strong to handle everything… but in the end we are not made of steal.
We are real, made of fragile flesh and feelings. We are Body and Soul.
I believe in Balance…
It’s my favorite word – other than Love!
The balance between your Strength and your Softness makes you who you are.
What you choose to give to Who, When and Why, builds your Character.
I would even dare saying we are Warriors.
We endure jobs, households, social life, love life and any other everyday affairs. And you need to juggle it all in the air.
The amount of unrelated subjects we manage daily in our lives is endless. They consume your brain and many times reflect on your body. And you keep juggling everything as if you are perfect, wearing an invisible armor.
So, yes, I’m sure we are Warriors.
Oh wait… didn’t I just say we are Princesses?!
For me, Princess is not the same as “pretty little princess”.
It’s not the condescending version of it.
It’s the Princess-Warrior, it’s a growing Queen. She embraces her power, she chooses to be herself in a world deciding who you should be.
And if that means you are fragile sometimes… so be it.
If it means striping off the invisible armor sometimes… so be it.

This is incredible work! Well done! I would love to write an analysis of this one day if you wouldn’t mind.
Also, in appreciation for your blog, I have nominated you for a Liebster award.
Thank you!! I’m so happy you liked it and thank you for the nomination! 🙏 I just need some time to understand what I need to do as I’m completely new to the blogging world and still trying to figure out it works. Feel free to conduct your analysis, I’d love to see the result! Once again, thank you!
No worries! The instructions are included in my post. If you have any further questions, I might be able to answer them.
I’m new to blogging myself but have been a writer for as long as I can remember. It feels so good to finally be sharing my work with the world.
Thank you for your permission to analyze your work! It will probably be some time before I get around to this project since I have many others in the works, but hopefully I’ll manage to get something out sometime in February.
I’m a lifelong student of literature and my degree is also in the field. Literary analysis is one of my specialties but I haven’t had much of an excuse to write such analyses since I graduated and I miss that kind of work! I’m looking forward to applying that experience to celebrating the work of my fellow bloggers.
