The Magic of Fairy Tales: Why We Still Love Them

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Neil Gaiman, “Coraline” 

Fairy tales are more than just stories.

They teach us that we can overcome any challenge with courage, determination, and a little magic.

As a child, I loved reading fairy tales about brave knights and clever peasant girls.

These stories made me believe anything was possible if I set my mind to it.

As I grew older, I realised that fairy tales are not just for children. They are also metaphors for the challenges we face in our own lives.

The dragons in fairy tales represent our fears and obstacles.

The knights and princesses represent our own inner strength and courage.

And the happy endings represent the possibility of overcoming any challenge if we never give up.

I still love reading or watching fairy tales today. They remind me that even when things are tough, there is always hope. They give me the courage to face my own dragons and to believe that I can achieve my dreams.

What are your favourite fairy tales? What do they teach you about life?
