Every girl has fantasied a fairytale at some or the other point of her life. She has dreamt of having a fairytale romance with her Knight in shining armour, a Prince Charming who will sweep her off the floor and make her life magical. I am a girl and I admit that I have had my share of fairytale dreams too. The 'happily ever after' stories of Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping beauty are far too alluring to be ignored.
But, is a real life relationship similar to those of these Disney legends? I loved the insights shared on the similar lines on Bonobology. Real Couples. Real Conversations. It's the perfect website for relationship advice from real couples and every story shared here can be used as a source of inspiration and learning.
Coming back to our Disney love tales, I seriously feel that these movies wrong the young minds of little girls who brew up images of a fairytale romance.
As if these stories are not enough, there's Bollywood waiting for you to make matters more worse. From the train scenes of DDLJ, the airport scenes from every other Bollywood film where the Hero rushes to stop his true love from boarding a plane, the romantic proposals and the happily ever afters, Bollywood deceives our young minds with every Romantic film ever made.
Then we grow up, out hearts already brimming with emotions and expectations only to be disappointed. We look for Raj, the Prince Charming from DDLJ in every other man we meet and continue our search of the phantom we have formed in our minds.
When we finally get into a relationship, we fall in love but sadly, not with the guy but the idea of what we think he is. This is followed by depression, anger, loneliness and an ocean full of tears.
Then you end up like me, a 22 year old Blogger, who is still being foolish and waiting for her Prince Charming but is starting to see the truth and learn the reality of it all...
So I wanted to share something with you folks today, a little secret which neither the fairytale books or the Bollywood chick flicks told you - Real life is far different and more challenging then reel life. The best thing to do is to not have any expectations and just be prepared for whatever may come.
A real relationship is about ups and downs, yes, there are happy moments but there are sad moments too. It doesn't necessarily have to be a 'happily ever after' and there will definitely be a lot of tears but tell you what! That's just the beauty of life.
