Is there truly a soulmate? Not sure, maybe. What I do believe in is being with someone who loves you well. Someone who doesn’t belittle you, someone who knows what you are capable of and celebrates that. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. If a man is too intimidated to say hello to you, you know right then and there he is not the right man for you.
I believe in being with someone who can call you out on your stuff but doesn’t make you feel guilty for being less than perfect and flawed. In the end it’s not love’s job to punish you. Because the person you love is just as broken as you. No one is perfect. I believe in love and loving someone who is patient, kind, forgiving and apologetic.
I believe in loving someone who practices forgiveness freely and often. Love someone who is empathetic, kind and humble. Not only with you but with random people on the street. From the homeless man shaking his cup on the corner to the blue haired old lady in the supermarket.
What I learned is that the right person for you is the person who marks a before and after in your life. Someone who makes you question things, who has the capability of changing your reality by just being themselves. What I learned is that the right person is not the person that everyone else idealized for you but an ordinary person who revolutionizes your world.
So in the end I don’t know if that makes the right person your soulmate. But what I do know for sure is that it makes you rethink about what love is and if you’re loving the right person, right?
