Cinderella Complex *
This is what I was thinking on my way to college ◎

When I went to college this morning, I was listening to one of my favorite songs and realized a certain thing.

A few months ago, I heard a interesting story when I was watching TV. It told that 千秋, a Japanese TV personality, never reads a story of Cinderella to her child because she believes that women's future happiness should not be determined by men and she wants her child to be independent. I recently knew that the phenomenon, many women tend to have been waiting for men who totally change their life wonderful, is called "Cinderella Complex." (cf. シンデレラコンプレックス, Cinderella complex)

What I realized while I was listening to the song was that the song is about this complex.

Here's the song, "Cinderella" by Tata Young.

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White, waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white, unless we're riding side by side
Don't want to depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
