Happy Ever After — Is it simply in fairy tales we see on television or a viable possibility? We decided to get a female’s point of view on the topic. Pay attention Love Monkeys
Ever since we were little, we were all programmed to expect to be saved by our very own prince charming, fall in love, and live happily ever after. Thank you Disney for drilling this fairy tale complex into our subconscious. Unfortunately, for the 5 year old girl in all of us, those fairy tales don’t exist for most of us. I have come to the conclusion that we need to insert some realistic expectations into this whole “fairy tale” idea that we grew up believing in. I think most of us can’t really see the difference between a bratty need for the unattainable and actual happiness. While I don’t believe in fairy tales, I do still believe that you can find true love. I think its just a matter of having realistic expectations. Most of us will come across a variety of guys whom we think may be our “prince charmings” but the very first thing you need to ask yourself is whether you are truly happy. When and if something ends because the love wasn’t there, he obviously was not the one. Furthermore, if you meet someone and things don’t just move naturally, he probably won’t be the one either. I’m a big firm believer in not settling. You cannot make excuses for a guy as to why he doesn’t call, won’t see you, won’t make you his girlfriend or treat you the way you feel you deserve to be treated. If you want to get close to the whole “fairy tale” notion, you have to be able to tell the difference between the guys who will fall for you and the ones who have you around to just pass the time. Lastly, if you come across the unfortunate situation where you meet someone and fall in love with them to later find out that you both want completely different things; Well, unfortunately sometimes love isn’t enough. Weigh out your own dreams and goals versus the possibility of having something with this person and if that possibility doesn’t outweigh your goals and dreams, then your better off moving forward with your life. That doesn’t mean that you loved this person any less but sometimes things just aren’t meant to be. Happiness should always be a priority, if not, you wind up resenting each other. The main thing for any scenario is that happiness is always a priority. if you find yourself unhappy, question things and do what makes you happy. You’ll inevitably find your prince charming, so long as you value yourself and what you deserve and do whatever makes you happy because if you aren’t happy with your situation, no one will be happy in a relationship with you.
