A Happily Ever After…

Why does a girl require a guy to get a ‘Happily Ever after’? Can’t she have a Happy Ending with herself?

Once upon a time, there lived a girl, just like you. She had a normal life and a few big dreams.

She dreamt of achieving her goals, to earn big, to live big.

But she dreamt of one more thing, it was a ‘Happily Ever After’ with someone special.

She’d had crushes before, and had got over them after a certain point of time, but this one was different, it won’t just leave her mind.

One moment she would be determined of not thinking of him, and the other, just a single glance of him would destroy her plans.

She had always heard people say, ‘There came a prince who came riding a horse, so charming, so kind and brave by heart, swept her off her feet and took her with him to his own kingdom.’

Even the fairytales said so! You could rarely find a fairytale with a ‘Happily Ever After’ without a prince.

Maybe that’s the reason she always dreamt of a ‘Happily Ever After’ with her own ‘Prince Charming’…

She kept waiting, she’d give guys a chance, let them break her heart and walk away.

But one fine day, she realised that there was no Happily Ever After unless you are in terms with yourself…..

And that day, her wait was over. She no longer anticipated the arrival of her Prince Charming, her Knight in Shining Armour to come and sweep her off her feet.

Now you would ask, ‘What about her Happily Ever after?’

Then I must tell you, she did get her Happily Ever after, not with a guy, but with herself, and that my dear friends, was more than anything she could ever ask for…..


Addendum:

Why does a guy require a girl for a ‘Happily Ever After’? Is it because every fairytale requires a ‘Damsel in Distress‘ waiting for her Prince Charming to come and rescue her from the mundane routine?

Then let me tell you, not every girl is a ‘Damsel in Distress’.

You’ll always find a Moana or an Elsa who’s not looking for love but have their own definitions of success…

So, beware, let them be. Else you’ll end up with a broken heart. And that my dear friend, is not a threat, but a mere advice from a friend.

  1. “Not every girl is a Damsel in distress and not every boy is Prince Charming” there’s a need to come out of fairytales and embrace the reality -Defining the success and working hard to achieve it.
