    6 Ways Being A Princess Is Seriously Overrated

    Motion to put a rest to this whole princess obsession once and for all.

    So you've always wanted to be a princess...

    These ladies probably had a lot to do with it.

    But being a princess really isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Seriously, hear me out!

    1. Princesses are supposed to be graceful.


    Which is way harder than it sounds.

    2. A princess must be polite.


    No matter what they have coming to them.

    3. Princesses are under constant scrutiny.

    Which, at first, seems like it would just get kind of annoying.

    But a few decade of this...

    ...can really start to get to you.

    4. A Princess has to look perfect at all times.

    And if you don't already fit the princess mold...

    Don't worry.

    Someone will always be around... "fix" you.

    5. Princesses basically get auctioned off to the highest bidder.

    Which means feeling like this your entire life.

    Because when your dad's entire kingdom depends on getting you hitched...


    Actually sounds more like this...


    6. And honestly, the chances are astronomically high that you won't actually ever ever be a princess.

    Which means you're basically just setting yourself up for failure.

    Now, I know that was a lot to take in.

    But don't worry.

    There are SOOOOOOO many other things you can be, that are WAY better than being a princess.

    Like a rock star

    Or a crime fighter

    A rock climber

    A restaurateur

    Or a bad-ass break dancer

    So chin up!

    And repeat:
