Sleeping Beauty was lying in bed checking Facebook from her phone, just feeling so completely alone in her depression. Then she came across a post from an acquaintance about how sad he was, it was a darkness that made him feel like nobody could ever understand how he felt. “Is there anyone else who feels this way?” he asked.
She felt a sense of relief wash over her, a little bit of joy, and thought, At least I’m not so sad I wrote about it on Facebook.
This morning, a librarian friend of mine tweeted this. I thought it was worth sharing. It’s worth a few laughs, but it’s also a bit apropos, isn’t it? Old tales shortened, updated, and twisted to suit modern readers. A not of caution, though: some of the humour / language has a bit of an edge some might not like.
