“She remembered who she was and the game changed.”
The rationale behind “DEAR SELF” was a reminder to all women to be confident with who they are, instead changing to seek acceptance; one should change for progress and not acceptance from others.
“DEAR SELF” was inspired by My Little Mermaid written by a Danish Author named Hans Christian Andersen. It’s a tragic story compared to the adapatation from Disney.
The Mermaid made a deal with the Sea Witch in exchange to for a pair of leg to being human, The Mermaid will have to give up her tail, her voice and a marriage agreement with the Prince, else she would turn into sea foam.
Unfortunately, the marriage did not went through despite all she had given up to be human to marry the prince. Ultimately since the marriage did not went through, she turned into sea foam.
