Soul Mates

Do you ever just sit and wonder if soul mates are a real thing? Or maybe it’s just people romanticizing relationships like we romanticize everything that exists?

I, for one, tend to believe that there is one person that was made for me and vice versa. But see? This is the problem. This is where the anxiety kicks in and my person starts asking questions like “what if your paths never cross?”. Well, fate is a thing too. Right?

I guess I should take back my first statement on me believing there are soul mates and rather say that I want to believe they are. I just find the idea of it so beautiful, unique, and special. You need to feel special? Remember that somewhere out in the world there is another person that exists just for you and you for them. How beautiful is that?

Through my experiences though, I guess you could say I am nowhere near close to finding my knight in shinning armor. Yeah, I know I’m still young but it doesn’t change the fact that I am so eager to find the one person I’ll spend my life with forever. You know, some people get really hung up over that statement. Like, how could you possibly be with one person the rest of your life? I actually find comfort in this because if you haven’t noticed people come and go all the time. I find comfort in having at least one person that will be someone I can consider a constant.

I hope you’ll find your soul mate and spend the rest of your lives together.

  1. Not sure if I believe in soulmates but I do believe in finding that person that not only loves you but makes you a better you. I don’t necessarily want someone to complete me but I want someone who can help me complete myself and vice versa. I’d love to have a person I can spend everyday with and not get sick of them. LOL In the end, I want a person who accepts me but isn’t afraid to challenge me to be better. While that may seem one-sided, I want to be able to do that for them too. I want to be the person that accepts them and challenges them for the better. I think I don’t believe in the concept of soulmates because I’ve seen marriages fail and flourish, partners come and go. The person who sticks by me during hard times will be my person, and I don’t know when or how that person will come into my life but I won’t restrict myself with the possibility of a soulmate but will strive for the unshakable base of friendship.

    1. I understand completely what you mean. What gets to me is when a wife or husband dies and the other is left alone. Sometimes not always though the widow finds another soul mate or not soul mate. This is very interesting for me and makes me doubt the ideality of the whole thing. I like the way you word it though, to find the person that doesn’t change you but pushes you to be a better version of yourself. That’s also beautiful because this person believes in your potential even when you find it hard to.

      1. Exactly. What you said about the widow finding a new partner is what I was thinking about when I wrote the comment. Also when someone gets divorced and is looking for a new partner because of course we’re human and make mistakes. The first (second, or third) person that we choose for ourselves might not be our ‘person.’ I like the idea of soulmates and what you wrote about in your original post; I just know that when it comes to real life, people don’t always choose what’s best for them even if it’s staring at them in the face. It takes time and trial and error but I hope that we all eventually find that person.
