A sad part of growing up is realizing the harsh truths of a lot of things we believed were precious and magical. When we found out Santa Claus wasn’t real, the Easter Bunny was a lie or when the Tooth Fairy was just mom skimping us with a dollar, a tiny piece of our youth fluttered away and left us a bit more resentful.
Worse than anything our parents told us is the reality we all learned about Disney once we entered high school. Around then it turns out that all those Disney movies were just the result of a bunch of perverts tripping on acid. But wait…that makes it cool. And Disney yet again held a special place in our hearts.
But these Disney “truths” are a bit harder to handle. There is something very disturbing and almost sad about learning the real facts of “The Little Mermaid” and “Cinderella.” Turns out like everything else in this world, they are just a sad and scary tale of misery and f*cked up sh*t. Try not to let these truths harden you for good.
