Why I Hate Fairy Tales

“…and they lived happily ever after.”  The end, that’s it, ever after is what every single girl is aiming for. It’s been drilled into our minds since we could watch Cinderella’s glass slipper fit perfectly, Ariel be swept off her brand-new feet, and Snow White with her true love’s kiss.  Find a guy (normally the first one you see), make him love you, and get married. Ugh.

That’s not real life. In real life, you’ll probably meet a couple not-so-prince-charmings, get your heart broken a few times, and end up watching those very same fairy tale movies on Saturday night. I can’t believe this is what young girls look to for their love life. I know I’ve done it, seeking after that love story ending that isn’t even close to reality.

Instead of looking to princesses for love advice, we should be looking to the original love story author, God. He’s the one who loved us first, before we were even born (Psalm 139:13). He sent his only son to die for us (John 3:16, 1 John 4:9). Absolutely nothing can separate us from God’s love…NOTHING (Romans 8:31-39).

Next time you seek after that “true love feeling”, remember who loved you first.



Romans 5:5- “…hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.


DISCLAIMER: I don’t hate all aspects of fairy tales: I admire their perfect hair.
