The Death Of Pollyanna...Maybe this is just an experience that comes with living.
Maybe I got here so late because I married young and therefore got my delusions later in life.
But I'm coming to learn that people aren't often what they portray themselves to be.
And the Perpetual Pollyanna finally falls from the tree, and realizes that it's not really that easy to be "glad" all the time. Because the "Big Bad Wolf" isn't just a character in a children's tale. He is out there. Masquerading, not as a sheep, but as her neighbor, her doctor, her local supermarket employee, her next date, and maybe even her best friend.
And suddenly, the little girl who gave hope to everyone has none to spare for herself.
And everything was just a lie after all.
And she really has no one but herself to count on, and that's not really that much...
