Calling all Cinderellas

The Cinderella syndrome, Lord help me.

I have been waiting for Prince Charming to show up, where in the hell is he? Why isn’t he coming to rescue me from this nightmare I am caught in? I am in a bad relationship and need help..ASAP.

I call this the Cinderella syndrome. Someone brought me a shoe and it fit but it was never mine and now I don’t know what to do. I keep hoping things will change but nope, nothing. I feel like time is running out. I am still holding onto the promises that were made in the beginning when everything was new and fun. Things were said and promises were spoken but nothing happened. I upheld my end of the bargain and he hasn’t. Those promises were empty and have evaporated years ago along with my tears.

I have given him everything I had and all that it’s done is left me feeling empty. Nothing but a hollow shell of a human. I see a woman in the mirror that I don’t recognize but instead wish her to be something else. I fall asleep at night with prayers on my lips asking for Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
