Dark Thoughts and Great Movies

They say most girls dream of being a princess and want to be rescued by the prince. What about the boys? I for one wanted to be the prince, find my true love and live happily ever after. Isn’t that what most of us want. I did not know the story ends with the princess sleeping with all 7 dwarfs the Ogre and even Donkey too. Why can’t we be like penguins or seahorses or better yet a Werewolf? Damn you Morpheus and your red pill. (yes, I just referenced Snow White, Shrek, National Geographic, Twilight and Matrix, that’s how messed up my head is). Never really understood the phrase, “ignorance is bliss” until now. Thought I was married to a virtuous woman, I was very religious, had heaven to look forward to and a purpose in trying to save the world. Now that I’ve taken the red pill, I am enlightened more sympathetic more tolerant, which is ironic because that’s what religion was supposed to teach me. So now I’m less of an A hole but miserable. I guess I would be happier if I could find love again, maybe there’s a Trinity out there for me, but if I’m honest I’m afraid to get hurt again. I need a friend but they may let me down too. What am I crying about? I’m not the only person that has experienced a broken heart. It’s been 10 years, get over it! I have a lot going for me, 3 beautiful children, a family that loves me, a great career and more… But I so desperately want to believe…should I fake it till I make it? Is that the blue pill? Does Prozac come in blue? I know what is good for me but can’t seem to move forward.
