I've realized that there are deep truths lurking in fairy tales. Carl Jung has stated this ,in theories about collective unconscious and archetypes. My life seems to fit patterns of fairy tales a little too precisely for comfort. But I've had to adjust to this and the perception makes it somehow more acceptable. I now realize also that childhood experiences, and one's parents' attitudes carry their influence far beyond, and even into one's later years. My mother told me that she used to leave out all the bad , scary parts of fairy tales. But now I perceive that they exist.
