Keeping the twin birth scenario aside, we didn’t come on this earth in a pair nor are our souls going to fade into dust in a pair.
So why is there a deep rooted need to constantly be on the lookout for somebody to complete us?
Why is there a strong belief that you need a significant other to give you your own very happy ending?
Because let me tell you, the concept of Happy Endings is a farce, Happy Endings belong in Disney movies.
You start a great relationship with someone, but a few months or a few years down the line, things change, you don’t love them anymore or they don’t care for you as deeply as they used to.
The end is inevitable and then what? You’ll start the hunt for another special someone perhaps? Or you’ll waste away your life, sitting glumly and wondering where did it all go wrong?
To come across another human who is completely content by being on his/her own is truly a miraculous moment, to be savoured and taken due inspiration from.
You can’t let your life be dictated by maelstrom of promises and constant validation from another.
Fulfilment and contentment does not come by sharing a life with someone. What good is love coming from another if you haven’t learned to love yourself right first?
Embrace your solitude, let the empty space around be a source of comfort, a source of peace you crave.
Perhaps by doing so, you will know that fulfilment comes from loving the incomplete, broken parts of you, the ones that cannot be joined by another, even your so called ‘soul mate’.
I hope one day you wake up and realise that only you can complete your incomplete.
