The idea of a soulmate is a delicious temptation!
To find someone who completes you?
Someone to nurture and grow with you?
To stimulate your entire existence on all levels-
mind, body, heart, and soul?
Yes, that sounds perfect,
but the likelihood of it ever happening for some-
Most people settle for less than they deserve
and give up the chance to find their soulmate.
“Who could care enough to help unpack the baggage that I carry
and to listen and learn with me?”
Some will forever be a closed book,
waiting for someone to take care enough
to pluck them off of the shelf,
dust them off,
and learn them from cover to cover.
And when that’s done,
read them again,
looking for the secret parts
that were missed the first time.
There is no satisfaction in just existing.
We should want to be challenged daily.
We should want someone who will drive us insane
and then bring us back down to reality.
Someone who will test our limits,
get our blood pumping within our bodies,
and someone who can soothe our soul
like no other could.
Settling for a mediocre relationship should not be an option
or in the cards.
If there isn’t a fire that ignites first in our heads,
then it will die out
before it ever gets a chance to reach our hearts.
This is the definition of love.
This is a true soulmate.
