Fairy Tales

By
Every girl dreams of falling in love.
As kids, we are told stories of handsome princes sent to rescue pretty girls from their horrible lives.
Sometimes it's a wicked stepmother, or jealous rivals after the same princes.

In a way, this is a terrible thing to teach little girls.
From childhood, we are taught that one day, a man will come along and save us from our sad lives,
our sub-par parents, and the not so nice girls at school.
Is that what love is really supposed to be?
Love shouldn't be a rescue.
You can't fall in love if the
rest of your life hasn't fallen into place.
Love is the final piece of the puzzle.
It completes the picture.
I don't need a prince charming to come and save me.
I just need someone to complete the puzzle.
