I’m really not in a bitter mood over love. Really!
I’m in a curious place right now. A really good place.
I DO think it’s funnycuzitstrue that there are so many tags and photos blaming Disney for women’s unrealistic expectations of love and relationships:
Take my favorite Disney movie of all time- Beauty and the Beast. What did Belle’s journey really teach us?
Love can change men.
That under that hairy, abusive, controlling monster is a handsome and tender prince. That the biggest adventure in life is falling in love.
…perhaps it just the Universe’s way of showing that individual (who was ready for a change) the incentive of living a better life.
Maybe Beauty and the Beast and/or Han Solo (moment of silence for Star Wars original trilogy) is responsible for my delusional attraction towards “bad boys”. Maybe it’s a Daddy issue. Maybe it’s C’est La Vie because I am where I am and I can’t be in more than one place.
“All Signs Lead to Disaster”. Blinders on. Skipping down the trail. With Kevin I never even looked for an emergency exit.
You can take home a baby tiger.
Love it, raise it.
Feed it at every meal and hold it through the night.
You can train him and talk to him. Treat him like a human. Give it everything you can.
But when that tiger turns on you, as the risk was always there, you cannot blame the tiger. For followings its instincts.
And don’t expect sympathy from anyone else. Because they all worried about your safety and your carelessness…loving tigers.
Sure, some may be shocked. That ones that were there, who stood by during the infancy, who witnessed the bond.
But still, they’ll sadly admit, “What can one expect from a tiger?”
And what if you were the friend or family member of above-mentioned tiger lover? Someone who watched this person struggle through the attack- but made it out alive. And what if, then, you watched that person walk right back into the tiger’s den?
This tiger may be different, but their stripes are all the same. Screaming, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got!!!”
What is the difference between being mauled- whether or not you expected it?
