Remember when we used to read the fairy tells about " Once upon a time..." and we all figured some prince would come rescue us. Well, as we all know as we grow up, this never happens. I think and believe that is one of the main reasons relationships fail; for the most part. I firmly believe that it takes two people to make a relationship work and when one or the other doesn't do their part, we are doomed. Do woman and men really want to be rescued? My question: YES! We all in some way want a person to come to our aid, love us for who we are, accept our defects and be with us for the rest of our lives. We want to be nurtured but also be able to stand on our own and enjoy other things that make us happy. Right?
I don't pretend to be an expert, of course, look at the book I wrote about my failed relationships. But I have learned a lot over the years and for once in my life I know exactly what is real and what is fairy tale. So in the future to come, whether I am with someone or not, I will always love myself first, be there for my family and kids and if I should ever find my "So called Prince charming" again, may he accept my shortcomings, my insecurities and love me not matter what.
