A Girl's Fantasy is a Dangerous Place to be in. [Part 1]

Of course you have heard about fairy tales.

You know, Cinderella, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Alladin's Jasmin, Sleeping Beauty's Aurora?

With the so-called Disney Princesses?

They are basically the epitome of every girl's fantasies when in a younger age.

Every normal ones, that is.

It's not about these princesses and how pretty they are.

But they ARE pretty.

It's about the idea of having a handsome prince rescuing you from your traumatic life and live happily ever after.

But that's what Disney wants us to think.

The actual original stories of these princesses are not like the happily-ever-after ones.

Like for example, Sleeping beauty was molested before she woke up and Ariel turned into bubbles because she never got Prince's love.

So many eye-openers? There's more but let's talk about it next time.

So, I grew up watching these fairytale movies.

There was a point where I wanted to be a princess in this distant land.

But as I grow up, I came to the realization that they will NEVER come true,

Then, I started dreaming of taking over the world.

That's waay better than fantasizing to be some peasant marrying a prince of a country.

Then your prince happens to be some playboy with dozens of concubines.

You'll just find yourself going crazy after that eye-opener.

Especially if you're the jealous type.

But as a girl, I STILL can't help wishing I was a princess in distress.

That someday, a prince will come and save me.

Whenever a lover comes to a girl, these fantasies take over.

To the point that girls ask for more and more.

For their ideal world to come true.

Until the guy gives up for giving too much that wasn't even enough for the girl.

I blame it all on the fairy tales. 

Ideal World.

At an early age.
