Stop Waiting – Prince Charming Doesn't Exist!
Life sucks. You’re poor and toil every day, cleaning behind your evil stepmother (or boss). And one day the gorgeous, perfect, dashing and brave Prince Charming swoops in and rescues you from your awful life. A silly fantasy but I’m sure we’ve all daydreamed about that at one point or another during our childhood (I blame Disney!).
We outgrow these illusions as we mature into adulthood, right? Maybe some of us do but there are many who, at some level, never really do. These poor gals are still waiting for the soul mate who will swoop in and take away their loneliness, heal their emotional wounds, and boost their self-esteem as well as their wallets. Well, girls, it hurts me to ruin the lovely fairy tale that runs your life but Prince Charming does NOT exist!
There is no such thing as the perfect man or the perfect ONE who fits into our lives perfectly. Men are just as flawed and dysfunctional as we are. If you’re not happy with your life, don’t mutter to yourself, “Everything will be better if I could just find HIM…” It’s not gonna happen!
If life sucks, you have to be the one to make it better or at least more bearable. You can’t wait for a man to be your saviour. No normal person wants to play that role, at least not forever. The concept may be romantic for some at first but eventually it would get too exhausting to watch over such an insecure woman.
Think about it this way. Pretend you’re Princess Charming coming in to save your “dream man” from himself. If you’re the nurturing type, that may be appealing. But now picture doing all of this work for 20 more years. Get the picture yet?
So, ladies. Whenever you find yourself humming “Someday My Prince Will Come” let the little girl in you daydream a bit but then pinch yourself so you can wake back up to reality.
