Most of the fairy tales and movies always end at happily ever after. Does it also end up in real life? I bet not. Real life is different from movies. Maybe in some part it has a connection but the story in the movie can’t ever happen in real life. When I was a child I always dream that my life would be like in fairy tales that there would be a prince who will rescue me to a bad evil witch. As I grew up, I learned that life is really different of what I dreamed of. Well, I’m happy with my life now. I can say that I’m contented with the things that I have. However, I still believe that as long as there is tomorrow my life would never be permanent. I’m happy now but maybe tomorrow or in the future I’m not ‘cause there is no such thing as happy ending when you are still alive. So, what’s your view about happen ending? Do you think your life will be like in fairy tale or movie which is happily ever after? Any comment…

Its a good thought to think that life will end like a fairy tale.Life goes on and on even after we achieve what we have set out for.The best thing is i feel to think positively so we'll achieve what we have set out for.With a positive attitude we'll achieve more in life and life ill resemble a fairytale.

Hi I agree with you when we were young, we thought life was a fairy tale with the hapily ever after ending and as we grow, reality sets in and we discover that such thoughts are from movies and books and are from peoples imagination. In my opinion, life is a combination of what we make of it and what God desires for us. God controls life and our duty is to work hard to make the most of it, we may not get what we want and need but we should learn to be content with what we have.

My life has been 'happy ever after' for the simple reason that now that I am old I realise that my aspirations are set at a reasonable level - at an achievable level. My 'happy ever after' is now and I am happy. Sad to say, I have met many people who are after perfection in their life; their love; their job. They will always be sad. They will never have a happy ending.

Happy endings in movies only show the part where they resolve a conflict after a climax as part of the plot but if it were to continue realistically, it would perhaps be in someways very similar to what everyone experiences, unless of course the characters in the movie contains magical powers and stuff like that. Anyway, what I am trying to say is that, we all have happy endings in some parts of our life but the real ending would perhaps be how we would be remembered when we passed away and how much our achievements matter to all or to many. Life is really hard and difficult, definitely far from fairy tales, but I guess we all have happy moments, perhaps even theatrical in a way. So I believe it's safe to say that sometimes, life is partly a happy ending or a series of happy endings, depending how you live it.

Its a good thought to think that life will like to be a fairy tale. but in reality, that doesn't really happen (that's why it called fairytale, its just a fiction).

I remember my boss about 25 years ago, He was telling us that we must have a goal in our life. And to attain that goal we must have a plan, series of short term plans for the Big plan. And what happens next is like yours that all my plans leads me to a very different life I planned. But as you have written, you are CONTENTED. that is the magic word. . . . be CONTENTED because no matter what achievement people get, they will always yearn for more. Look at some rich and famous people they are enjoying what money can buy but the irony of it, they always ask for more and more and more and becomes so greedy that in the end . . . they end their life. Their life becomes miserable compared to the less fortunate people.If you feel not CONTENTED, watch people around and you will realized that you're very lucky. . . compare yourself to them. You will feel more CONTENTED. . . and you will enjoy a happy ending life.

Hello Kissie, Life is beautiful and happy. We can always think that it will end in happy ever after. But we are just human being so trials and problems will always come our way. Though trials will come, it will be solve, and this will be another happy ending, an ending of a trial. We have different stages in our life, and what is shown in the movies and fairy tales are just one phase. Each day our our life is another chapter in our story called life, and in the final ending, it would still be happy. Happy ending together with our creator. :) take care

happen ending is a myth. reality is reality. there are even people who live in fairytales and refuses to live in reality. i dont get these people. they just wont accept what s there in front of them and rather live in a made up place they call -reality-, which is complete nonsense. i dont believe in fairytale anymore. i woke up a long time ago and decided to live my life in the real world.
