I held this same countdown not too long назад and I really wanted to chime in with my own opinion on the matter. I think all of the princesses Показать at least some strength emotionally, so I decided I couldn't rank them! Anyways I hope Ты enjoy Чтение this! Also, my definition of emotional strength might be different from your own. After Чтение some of the descriptions in people's Список for the countdown I realized that not everyone has a similar definition. ((the princesses are in a totally Болталка order, sorry that this Статья is such a mess...))

жасмин

Jasmine's emotional strength is underrated. жасмин has had to live in isolation her entire life, much longer than Anna, yet doesn't get nearly the credit she deserves. I think people seem to ignore the fact that жасмин lived without friends, life choices being made for her, and constant supervision because her tough and seemingly unaffected personality hides that. Despite Jasmine's tough personality, I'm sure her growing up and way she did affected her еще than she lets on, and possibly shaped her into the strong woman she is.

Ariel

Ariel shows immense strength as well, which also seems to go unnoticed. She's lived her entire life not fitting in to a society that forces her to hate the very thing that she adores, to be happy and content with the life she dreads, and to marry a nice little merman that she has no interest whatsoever in. It seems that most seem to forget all of that and instantly label Ariel's actions as selfish and childish, when really her life was being decided for her and her father was forcing her into a life she didn't feel she belonged in.

Belle

Belle takes the place of staying in the замок for her father. Belle takes the place of staying in the замок for her father!! That alone shows just how much emotional strength Belle possesses, but there's еще too it than that. Belle's one desire is to get out of her boorish, provincial town, but she's stayed there anyway to help her father. Belle's devotion to her father is definitely one of my Избранное things about her.

Merida

Merida, like Ariel and Jasmine, is forced to live a life of rules and expectations, constant supervision, tweaking, and critiquing, and worse of all, she's forced to live a life that forces her to be something she's not. All her life her mother has taught her what is right and what is wrong for a lady, that there is nothing in between, all her life she has been told to not be who she really is. Also, Merida was willingly going to marry one of the suitors when she was giving her speech towards the end to mend the fighting before Elinor showed her, which showed a lot of emotional strength.

Rapunzel

Rapunzel has lived in an abusive Главная her entire life, whether she knows it или not, it's still an abusive household. Mother Gothel has constantly insulted her her entire life, yet still she keeps an optimistic temperament, similar to Snow and Cinderella. On вверх of that, she's also lived in isolation, which might seem to not be THAT big of a deal, and many princesses share that similarity, but think if Ты were in a situation where the Ты had no one Ты could interact with, no one Ты could share your feelings with. She also shows so much strength in standing up to Gothel after all those years.

Aurora

Aurora's strength is also underrated in my opinion. She too has lived in isolation her entire life, yet remains cheerful about the situation. Also, at the young age of sixteen, Aurora's entire life is revealed to be a lie to her, her name, her age, the fact that she's a princess! She ends up leaving the one луч, рэй of sunshine that she's found in her dull life in a long time, Phillip, to fulfill her duty and marry a man that she's never even met and be emerged into a lifestyle completely foreign to her. Yes, Aurora cries! Does that make her weak? No! It makes her human.

Золушка

Золушка is no doubt known as one of the strongest princesses, and it's of course justified. Whether Ты believe Золушка is passive или a doormat is a personal matter, but no one can disagree that Золушка showed so much strength in putting up with her step family for all those years. I think the thing that adds insult to injury in Cinderella's case is the fact that she's seen the other side, she's seen what is was like to be happy, to have a father who loved her, but then that was all taken away from her. Instead of letting her situation get to her, she remains forever hopeful and kind.

Elsa

There seems to be a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to Elsa's strength, in which I say?!?!? I think people mistaken Elsa's vulnerability as weakness, when really it just shows she's human. Although Elsa wants to be with Anna just as much as Anna wants to be with Elsa, she keeps herself away. When Anna says that she wishes things could go back to how they used to be, Ты can see the hurt in Elsa's eyes and how she wishes that too, but she can't because she has to protect herself from Anna. Also, Elsa was left in her room alone to suffer. She didn't have Anna's optimism that someday things would get better, she had the idea that she was a monster who hurt her precious sister and that's all she's ever going to be.

Tiana

Tiana has had to deal with dig after dig after dig, people putting her down, telling her that her dream will never be accomplished, that it's impossible, but what does she do? She keeps trying. She's extremely resilient and the fact that she's basically doing this еще for her father than for herself in my opinion just makes it all the stronger. Besides the work aspect, Tiana had to live in a time where she was most likely extremely discriminated and looked down on, as both a woman and a person of color, but she defies all odds.

Мулан

She takes the spot of her father in war. She takes the spot of her father in war!! This in and of itself is self-explanatory, but the fact that Мулан tries so hard to please her parents, even before this, really displays her strength. I can tell that Мулан could care less about finding a man to marry from the matchmaker, possibly is even opposed to the idea, but she does so anyway for the sake of bringing her family honor. Time and time again she thinks less about her own desires and еще about others, which also shows a great deal of strength.

Anna

This girl is strong as heck. Her sister, the one person she loved most, suddenly shuts her out, and unlike Elsa, Anna has no idea why. She thinks that it's her fault and it becomes her burden. Then, later, when she has to deal with the death of her parents, her own sister won't even mourn with her. The fact that Anna could keep her optimism and cheer and not grow angry towards Elsa is amazing. Although Elsa continually shuts her out the entire movie, she never once gives up. Also, she gives up her life for Elsa. Okay, she didn't end up dying, but she believed 100% that she was going to when she stepped in for Elsa.

Pocahontas

Pocahontas seemingly lives the most normal life of all the Дисней Princesses in my opinion, but that doesn't mean she doesn't also Показать strength. Although Pocahontas and John's relationship is often seen as little еще than a fling, I think the fact that it could've been that, but isn't is what shows Pocahontas's strength. Pocahontas didn't have to get involved with the warring sides of her tribe and lover, but she did so anyway. Also, Pocahontas making the decision to stay in Jamestown for the better of her people was such an extremely strong and selfless thing to do that it deserves еще credit.

Snow White

Saving the best for last, in my opinion. Snow shows so much strength it seriously baffles me when people call her weak. Weak because she cries for about five секунды after almost being killed? That's the definition of strength in my book. Snow has almost been killed, is now homeless and knows that someone is out there looking to still kill her, yet instead of crying crazily, she apologizes to a bunch of Животные for scaring them. I MEAN COME ON. She's just such a bundle of optimism and joy despite her terrible childhood and her strength just shines through her brightly.


Sooo, that's my article! This was extremely fun to write and it made me happy to talk about the princesses purely positively for once, so thanks for Чтение and I hope Ты enjoyed! :) ..I shouldn't have been so lazy and I should have ordered this better and added pictures, but alas, it's the first день of spring break and I just wanted to write this.
