I grew up playing with Barbies and they always found their Prince Ken and lived happily ever after.
I was guilty as a teenager, when I’d watch a love story and I thought maybe that ‘type’ of soap opera love story existed.
Sometimes it’s a hard blow in reality when the thoughts we had as a young person get blown up.
Perhaps I should have watched more of Married with Children or Rosanne…to see more of the reality of relationships and love.
My life has shown me that life is not a fairy tale. Fairy tales are fiction.
So how can we have a positive belief in ‘fairy tales’ without falling into the trap of expecting those fairy tales to become reality? IS there a potential of healthy balance?
Do you believe in fairy tales?!
