Definitely not what I thought I would write about today but hey, let’s start the day with thoughts on romantic relationships!
So, if you’ve read of my last blog posts on relationships, well you have an idea where I’m going with this. If you haven’t read it, here’s the link to check this out!
Anyways, the day after I wrote my blog post “Dear Soulmate,” my cousins-in-law/sisters/besties discussed it with me telling me I was on to something. Honestly just the idea that we were having a discussion based on something I wrote was pretty surreal but what we discussed about was really interesting and I believe is worth writing about on the blog.
When I wrote “Dear Soulmate”, I didn’t really think about one person in general but I really thought about the idea of having someone that completes you when you need it or when you’re ready for it. As we were talking about it, we were developing the idea that maybe we don’t just have one soulmate.
Ok first off, what’s a soulmate really? Well, according to Urban Dictionary, it’s:
It’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It’s someone who makes you a better person, well, actually they don’t make you a better person…you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soulmate is someone who you carry with you forever. It’s the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens..you’ll always love them.
And this is how I see it too. Everybody thinks that a soulmate is the other half you will be forever with. Well, maybe not. I really believe in the idea that a soulmate is someone that you will have forever in your heart even though you won’t be with them for the rest of your life.
The reason I believe why we have different soulmates is because as we grow up we most likely meet or will be in relationships with different people who will help out with our growth as individuals.
For example, personally – I believe I already met a few of my soulmates – guys who either I was involved in a relationship with or simply with whom I had a really deep intense connection. All of them brought something in me that made me grow and they were all there at a certain time for a specific reason.
I’m 100% positive we meet people for a reason and when we see these people from the first time, we know they’re gonna have an impact on us. The people I have in mind when it comes to my soulmates, well I remember the first impression they left on me when I first met them and as I’m re-thinking about it right now, I have a bit of nostalgia but also my heart feels full from it. I feel very happy and fortunate that I met the people that I did because they will bring me closer to the actual person that completes me.
So, I know this sounds like what we all know – you meet people and experience different relationships to eventually settle down – but I really wanna stress the idea of soul mates cause I just believe it’s a really pretty term that makes all of this more special.
