    The Thing About Fairytales

    I was about five or six years old when I heard the stories of the Disney princesses for the first time. I remember asking myself, “Why aren’t I one of those princesses?” I knew that I wasn’t homeless like Snow White was for a while, and wasn’t the child of royalty like...

    Never Ever After

    I don't know why people fill their kids' heads up with that fairy tale ****.  Reading books is great, but I mean, come on.  My parents never did.  We had like The Velvetine Rabbit (so sad) and they were realistic about life and things.  I remember the Disney...

    All Of Our Bridges Burned Down

    I used to believe in true love and maybe even happily ever after with the exception that I always knew life was never going to be perfect. Now, I don't think I really believe in anything anymore...certainly not people...however, I do still believe in the love of animals...so that...

    I don't believe in happily ever after.  I wish I did.  When I was a girl, I did - princesses and princes. I don't know - I guess when you are a child, they teach you childish things, but as you grow into an adult, you are left on...

    Fairy Tales Don't Exist In a Real World

     Fairy tales exist, but never in a real world. Living happily every after is a lie to me.

    At the Most It's "Contentedly For the Moment...unless You Stop Wishing For More"

    Fairytale Love is for cardboard cutouts sprinkled in radioactive glitter. It's dangerous to self-worth. Be happy that people show you any love, because the moment you believe in "Happily Ever After", you are depriving yourself of True Love...the love of yourself...

    They Told Us Lies

    Happily ever after is a load of crap, that or all the princes who are supposed to be coming and taking me away into the sunset are seriously late. Growing up you were always told how there was a prince for every princess and that you'd end up happy but what about everyone who...
