I use to believe in soulmates. That there was one person for everyone in the world, and when you met this person you would just know. You would have one of those movie moments, where the world stops moving, your heart stops beating and you momentarily forget how to breathe. It’s funny because I can pick out these moments for certain people from my past. The moment where we each met and had a movie like “meet-cute” (if you know the movie I’m quoting, we can definitely be best friends haha).
I no longer believe that everyone has just one soulmate in the world. I think we all have multiple ones and surrounding factors, efforts and timing all determine whether or not certain soulmates end up being the one.
Love isn’t easy and it isn’t all about fairy tale endings. In love you have to work your butt off to make it work. You have to love yourself first, but also be willing to make many sacrifices. Love is about giving and taking, and fighting to keep a balance between the two.
I love being in love, I love falling in love, but let me tell you, there is no worse feeling than the feeling of giving too much of yourself and not getting enough in return.
After this past year, I have learned so much about what I want in life, for myself and within my future soulmate. I want someone who constantly challenges me to be the best version of myself, I want someone who will point out my wrongs, but also someone who will help me turn them into rights. I know God has someone for me, and I am constantly reminding myself that He will show him to me at the right time.
I pray that you all find the kind of love you deserve and settle for nothing less than that. 🙂
