From Hans Christina Anderson’s melancholic and unfortunate ending to Disney’s happily ever after adaptation, ‘The Little Mermaid’ has become one of the most common names and love story known.
The history of mermaid started still way back to the old times. Folktales and different cultures have different and almost the same depictions of the mythical creature. A mermaid, according to the stories, is half-human and half fish. They live under the sea, and once in a while, they swim up for a breath of fresh air. Some say they are the most beautiful women, and with their voices, they can make sailors fall in love with them. Their laughs are as captivating as the shells they wear.
But there are claims that mermaids are vile creatures. They send storms and big waves. They are responsible for shipwrecks. Human lives are their prized possession. They lure men with their angelic voice and drown them and kept reminders down the cold seafloor.
With no evidence even after years of exploration, mermaid continues to live as a myth, but that doesn’t stop everyone from believing them. So, here are some of the mermaid quotes for you to live by this 2020.
She is a mermaid but approach her with caution. Her mind swims at a depth most would drown in.
Being a mermaid doesn’t mean you are dangerous or lethal. It means you are more than just what people see. There’s something within you that sparks fire, and it can be seen through your passion or the way your eyes lit when you do the things you love. Be more than the superficial and material things everybody else loves.
Mermaids don’t lose sleep over the opinions of shrimp.

Such wonderful things around you. What more is you looking for?
Being a mermaid will teach you that everything around you is beautiful already. If you look with your heart open, you can see wonders you never realized before. The rain isn’t just a rain anymore, but a chance to dance, get wet, and be a child again. The flowers aren’t just any flower, but a constant reminder of how are days are going to be, if only we choose the right color and the right kind. There’s beauty in things we thought were ordinary.
Becoming a mermaid may sound crazy when taken literally, but there are so many beautiful metaphors you can create when you become one. Becoming a mermaid is more than just the voice, the tail, and the wondrous sea. But it is all about adventures and wonderful places you can conquer if only you believe in yourself, in life, and the beauty in your heart.
The reason why people believe so much in mythical things is that they want to find a little magic in their life. They need it to stop from getting too preoccupied with their daily life. Believing in something that may not exist gives them hope for their uncertain future. Humans survived this way. They put their faiths in the unknown, hoping and praying someone will hear it.
There’s no harm in believing, and there’s no harm in becoming, but breaking someone’s illusion is evil. So, allow yourself to swim, allow yourself to discover the depths of your ocean, and realize that once you believe and accept yourself, you can do so much more.
Let us all be merpeople and let us feel the warmth of the sea. God has given us a treasure we are yet to discover. Let’s enjoy every moment of unveiling it.
