27.entry: Fairy tales end when they do for a reason

“You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.” - J.M. Barrie

Have you ever wondered what happened to The Little Mermaid after she married Eric, or what ever happened to the Beauty and the Beast? 

Maybe they lived happily ever after, or maybe they didn't. But like title reads, fairy tales end when they do for a reason. They always end when the guy gets the girl and all is well. But the reality is, its not. Finding somebody you like is hard enough, but keeping him or her interested is harder. They will probably break your heart, and you will end up broken. I have recently came across a blog about soul mates and stuff. And I must agree with what they wrote; ending up with a soul mate for the rest of the life would probably be to painful. Even though it will hurt and you will have a broken heart, it will get better. Because if you break new light will get in, and you will become a new person, a different person. Its their job to tear you to pieces, only so you can see what was wrong all along.

Recently it happened that more than one person broke my heart. And I know this all sounds very sissy because I am man and all, but still, it sucks. And forgetting the fact is impossible. It may happen you will end up having feelings for him or her forever, but you have to let them go. It is the best thing you can do for yourself. 

The soul mates, or best friends who have done you wrong are hard to let go, but you must. In order to grow you must move forward with or without them. Because otherwise you will be trapped in the vicious cycle of self-hate and resentment toward the other person. And it will end with mutual self-destruction. Letting go is hard, but imagine it as a balloon that you slowly let go of at the end of the day at a carnival. It goes up, higher and higher, and you see it getting smaller and smaller. After a while it disappears completely, though you might still remember it, it will no longer have affect on you.  

Some people and some loves are not meant to last, they are there to shape you and make you better. When the pain is the only thing you hold onto, its time to let go. Not all loves are the same, some are smaller, some bigger, and some stronger. And they all have one thing in common, they make you feel alive, they make you to open up and accept the good things. And the last time I checked it is still worth it. In the long run it will help you.

I have had this draft saved for a while now because I wasn't quite happy with the ending, and it finally came to me. Its alright to love people who wont love you back, and the trick is to change the way you love them. Maybe love them as friends, as people who will challenge you in life to be greater and better or love them from afar. I wont drown myself in hate or pity, its just not healthy. Its time I moved on and change the way I love you. 

So yes, fairy tales end up at some point, but we live on, and be careful what kind of fairytale you are walking into. The real thing begins when the curtain drops and the spectators are all asleep.
