ABOUT CO-DEPENDENT RELATIONSHIPS
CINDERELLA AND FAIRY GODMOTHER
Fairy Godmother: Cinderella, my dear, you have been so good and friendly and you have taken care of everything, all is clean and tidy, what would you choose for reward?
Cinderella: I only wish that someone would love me, a little attention and love is all I want.
Fairy Godmother: Oh, I am not allowed to influence other people, but I can fulfill any material desires, what would you like to have, what would you like to do?
Cinderella: I want to go on a journey around the world, I would like to see faraway lands.
Fairy Godmother: Oh, this is easy, tomorrow I’ll get you everything you need and you will immediately go on a journey.
Cinderella: No, no, wait my Fairy! Who will take care of the stepmother and stepsisters? Who will be cleaning and cooking, who will took their anger and resentment on their shoulders, who will beautify them and encourage them, who will be dusty and dirty and small and worthless next to them, so that they feel better and more valuable than me. I cannot leave them. They're all I have, they are all I know. What if I won’t mean anything to anybody out there in the unknown world? Please go get me a new cloth and mop.
Fairy Godmother sighed: It is not the time yet, I will come back in about a year.
