Soulmate

Soulmate’s.. real or not real?

I don’t think I believe in soul mates to the sense that there is one person out there to complete me. What does that mean anyway? That I am not enough? That I’m not complete without a significant other by my side? It’s a lot of pressure to put on a person if you ask me. A guy is supposed to fit every specification that I have set for them? One guy is supposed to do all of that? Seems impossible, and it’s set every relationship up for failure if you ask me.

Also, no person stays the same for their entire lives. If that were the case life would be really dull. Not to say that you can’t be with just one person your whole lives. Some people are fortunate to find that person who grows with them as they move through the battlefield of life. But the term ‘soulmate’ just doesn’t seem right.  It’s somehow too easy yet so difficult at the same time. When you can just label someone as your soulmate.

The definition of soulmate is a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner. I like that it mentions close friend. I think I would have a better time finding a soulmate through a friendship then I would through a relationship. Though I am not good at keeping friendships either… I’m either a selective/ picky person or people get slightly bored of my brand of crazy. If they can’t handle me then why keep ’em?

It’s not to say that I don’t hope to find the person that I will love no matter what. I love romance as much as the next person, but I believe that that is the only thing out there when it comes to love. I think every will find love. Love through family, friends, kids, pets, careers, etc. That kind of love is forever to me. That is the kind of love that I want to have surrounding me all the time. I think that love makes a person complete. Very cheesy I know, but it’s true. Love does complete you, but it doesn’t have to be limited to a soulmate completing you.

Just something to think about.

Until next time…
