Is a fairy tale just that?

Is it a figment of someone's imagination that has been fed into our subconscious and filed under "the cinderella ending & others with happily ever afters" that would never really happen.

Or do things like that actually happen? And why is it that when we hear about a so called "fairy tale"esque encounter.. that we would rather think its made up or an exaggeration than *godforbid* an actual possibility.

Have we become so cynical that we won't even allow for the idea of the possibility of a "magical moment" to register?

Isn't reality merely a perception after all? Or have we shunned it into a rigid framework of does happen/ doesn't happen?

Fact is: when 6 women, all well educated, multi-cultured and fairly open minded, were faced by the prospect of "happily ever after" and the "magical encounter", all 6 of us smirked sarcastically and gave each other a knowing look of "yeah like that would ever happen".

We think outside the box every day, at work, in projects and on a professional basis, but we feel its better to confine ourselves to what we see as the reality of a situation when it comes to our personal lives.

Sad, isn't it?

- to fairy dust and magical stories that actually happen xx

yup - they dont exist anymore.

its that simple.

its not abt us being cynical, but its more abt the way the world is lately :(

I don't think they ever existed. I think it is something we entertain ourselves with to avoid our bitter reality. Be that as it may, some happily-ever-after's do occur from time to time.

They were called fairy tales, ie they can only be possibly happening in never land.

I don't believe in happy endings, even when it is a happy ending!

dandooon: i guess fairy tales are things from the past!

sham3at al jillas: yes, but why is it so hard for us to have faith in that "happily ever after" ?

mi: lol oh to live in such a world! x

plastic: yup

BP: me too.. i always wait for the other shoe to drop or something..!

there is a magical world, opposed to a world of reality and compromise. Now im not saying a realistic world does not encounter a "happily ever after" ending. It certainly does, only if comprimses are considered and overlooked.

Desertpalms: it does give u a positive perspective when u have faith in fairytale-esque encounters.. So yes dream, but watch ur back while doing so..

Pinksugar: it probably does exist, reality is a perception after all..

The world is as you dream it.I think its all's fairy tale could be another's nightmare and vice versa.however,hoping/wishing for a fairy tale or something magical to happen does help one during some bleak days.I dont believe in fairy tale endings and stuff.
