This actually probably isn’t what you might think it is. Its under the Diary tag just because it was a random thought from me and as all the diary posts tend to be mine I thought I’d add it as such.
I follow the wonderful Twitter account of @IcebergLuffy a anime account that sparks weekly debates amongst its followers throughout Saturdays. I’ve had some riveting discussions with people all over the world about a wide variety of things from politics to morals, sexual inequality to whether or not you stream anime legally or illegally. Everyone has a interesting opinion and even though I don’t always join in the conversations (the Twitter user is American so the conversation starts at about 1am UK time meaning sometimes I feel I have nothing to add by the time I remember to check his feed) I read every single tweet he retweets. It reminds me of how big this planet is and just how different we all are.
His debate this week was “Could there truly be a perfect world / perfect society?” and whilst personally my answer to THAT I feel was cut and dry (in my opinion) a tweet that then garnered a extra two likes actually made me realise that we always need to be reminded that being nice doesn’t sell…

Picking one single event in my life to erase is hard. If you had the choice there would be a lot of times you’d like to make disappear.
The thing is it isn’t a good idea to erase anything from your past.
I am only the person I am today because of everything that went before. My history made me. I’m not sure I’d give any moment up even if it meant not having to live through something bad. If I got rid of one of the times I got seriously ill then I’d have to probably live it at some point. A bad memory? Well what did I learn from it?
There isn’t really any point living a life if there is anything you’d erase from it. Humiliation, failure and any other negative experiences in your life are there for you to learn from. I’d hate to lose any of it really.
Would anyone really want to erase something that happened to them?
I think the concept of Happily Ever After is stupid.
Life would not be worth living if one event meant you lived a trouble free life from that point on.
Struggles in life is what makes us human. You learn from mistakes, you grow as a person, you meet people that you’d much rather not have but all these little things gives you a life worth living. Even with the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect partner and the best things happening that you could imagine something negative will happen at some point.
In fairy tales happily ever after is usually begun by marriage. In our times you see the amount of people who enter into these unions just to break it once again, you might be happy for a year, ten years even more but there can always be that day that breaks you.
Instead of waiting for a Happily Ever After moment you should strive to live for the moment. Something bad will always happen at some point but facing it all with a positive attitude instead of facing it with blind, childish belief that fairy tales are real is the way to live life.
Only a fool would believe they’ve had a “Happily Ever After” moment.
