My dearest, stop looking and asking for your Prince Charming. No boy will come riding on a white horse to save you from your peril up in your tower. It’s no use to have a self-pity party and wait for your happily-ever-after. Fairytales aren’t meant to come breathing out of book pages. There’s no “once upon a time” that drags on to tell a story of a love between two lovers who overcame great dangers. Stop romanticizing Sleeping Beauty and wake up on your own. Don’t let just any guy kiss you. If you have to dress up and plaster a different persona for him to like you, drown the Cinderella and Ariel in you. He’s not worth the trouble because at the end of the night, when the makeup isn’t plastered on your face and you’re lying on your bed crying, he has to know that this is you - not some dolled up version of you. Don’t fall for a pretty face and a nice smile. There’s more to guys than the way the sun makes their eyes glow and the butterflies you get from their smiles. My dearest, stop searching for a perfect guy. You’ll never find him. Just like you, guys are flawed. Stop romanticizing them. In some way or another, they are bruised, hurt, and broken. You might see stars in their eyes, but know they also have seen too much of this messed up world. You might see flowers on their skin, but understand they have fallen down before and been marked with scratches from evening beasts. There’s no beauty in pain. There’s no perfection in a human being. My dearest, everyone is flawed. Find someone who not only complements your broken pieces, but also keeps them from breaking apart even further. Even if that means he gets hurt in the process.
