Once upon a _______
Brainwashed from birth
It is really sad how much kids stories have trained us for the fantasy. Every single story out there requires these things
Evil protagonist such as a dragon/witch/Step-mom
Happily ever after
*Real life coming up so avert your eyes to keep your unaware bliss*
Handsome/beautiful - People are bell curves. Meaning there is only a very small percentage of the population that are extremely beautiful/handsome. The massive percentage of the population are average looking people but we aren't trained that way. We are force fed to only believe in the beautiful/handsome fantasy. In nearly every magazine and movie, every commercial and poster, everywhere are extremely attractive individuals. We are now trained to think that most everyone looks this way when in fact you will almost never ever see super-model quality in real life. If by chance you do see these beautiful people, they are brainwashed themselves and will not date the average looking guy, that by the odds... you are one
Prince/princess - Translation... rich and perfect. Bell curve works for this too. Most people are average paid hard working people. We are not all owners of exotic italian cars, ready to sweep anyone of their feet. Also no one is perfect, people have personality quirks. Beautiful people is not the sign that they are beaufiful inside. Everyone has annoying quirks sometimes all the way up to mental illness
This is a final plea for the realism of life for everyone (including myself). Very VERY few people are ferrari driving supermodels ready to sweep you off your feet. Step away from your disney movies, cosmo magazines, and perfume commercials and realize people are REAL and not the snobby goddeses you are trained to believe in.
Example, when is the last time you saw the opposite of the norm, A fat guy with a skinny pretty girl?
p.s. good job on the thought-provoking posts-keep it up!
Also thank you for your compliment!
