Where is my fairytale? The one where Prince Charming ended up being not so charming and leaves her after promising the world. The one that the princess finds her way through the pain to rise above to be stronger and better than ever. The one that shows there will be happiness again.
I grew up in a society that teaches girls that he will fight a dragon to save her, go door to door with a glass slipper and he will never give up. Girls are taught to look past appearances, to see the prince behind the beast, that love will conquer all. What we sometimes fail to remember is that we don’t live in the safety of a fairytale. It doesn’t always end in a happily ever after.
Don’t get me wrong, I love fairytales. I still have every hope in the world that I will find my Prince Charming. Hopefully instead of him fighting the dragon for me, we will help each other. Instead of me being the only one to look past a rough exterior, I hope he looks past my own struggles to see the best of me. Someday, I will still get my happily ever after. What can I say, I want it all.
Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
