Soulmates! Are You a Believer?

I was watching a juicy episode of "The Talk" on Frid ay and they brought up the topic of whether or not people believed in soulmates. Do you? If so, why do you?

Wikipedia describes a soulmate theoretically as "a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity, similarity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, or compatibility."

Personally, I believe in soulmates and have ever since I was a little girl. Seeing that I was the only child in the house living with Grandma, I was often lonely and bored. Though I often found very clever ways to entertain myself like playing teacher with the croton trees on the walkway or squeezing my uncle's silicone gel onto any "touchable" object in the house, I still felt a tad bit lonely at the end of the day.
I remember having a full body-length pillow that belonged to her which was super comfie. Each night, before bed, I would imagine that my pillow was my Prince Charming. I couldn't fall asleep without it! I'd hug and talk to this pillow as if it was alive and knew in my heart that everyone must have a soulmate, with whom they can share any and everything. I mean God did create Adam and Eve right?

Growing up and seeing my grandma be alone was another reason I had this belief. After terrible breaks in her love life, she chose not to become involved with anyone anymore and dedicated the rest of her life to raising me.  I could never thank her enough. She may not be here in person right now but I know that I will have the chance to tell her again. She, I don't feel like, believed in "soulmates" anymore and thought that the experiences she'd had only damaged her to the point where she would be of no use in a new, more serious relationship. I beg to disagree!

I feel as though the only way you'll ever come across your soulmate is to believe that you have one.  Like Donnie Osmond said on the show, whether you're in Toussant and they're in China, the cosmos will magically bring the two of you together. Tory Spelling thinks that Dean (her husband of nearly 6 years) is her soulmate.  Believe it or not, they were both married when they met and felt like their spouses were somehow "not the ones" for them. They both left their marriages to be with one another. The power of true love! (For now!) Many out there would say that is wrong but the heart wants what the heart wants.


"To me, love is a feeling like no other that can never be replaced. When you really love someone all you want is for them to be happy. You feel horrible when they're upset with you and would do anything in your power to make it right. You always have their best interest at heart and to see them smile, lights up your life. You seem to see their whole soul through their eyes and are captivated by their very aura. You'd give them your last without thinking twice because you know they'd do the same for you.

Wherever you are, you're never ashamed of them, in fact, want the world to see the strength of your love. You're there for them to lean on and are never boastful, quarrelsome or quick to anger.
Peace and love go hand in hand and so you compromise and sacrifice in order for them to smile. They're the first thing on your mind when you awake and you cannot sleep well unless you tell them goodnight, whether in person or in your mind's eye. When you think of them, a warm surge of electricity courses through your veins and your heart races.

Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is thoughtful. It has no boundaries. It is understanding. It is honest and reliable. When you truly love someone, it's unconditional. You're willing to work past their flaws and pray for them as much as you do yourself. However, love is a verb. It takes constant practice and is a conscious choice.

 True love conquers all." - Sue

If there is such a thing as a "soulmate", I believe that when that time is right, you will mysteriously find each other. Both people have to be at the right point in their lives so as to be able to receive love as well as to give it. They must not be so scarred by previous relationships that they don't even care to notice that the love of their life is standing right in front of them. I think we as human beings can sense when someone is right for us but often push them aside because of what society has already conditioned (or brainwashed) us to believe about the opposite sex.

Like I tell my friends, don't go looking for love. Let love find you. The universe already knows exactly what you want! It is us that sometimes go against it.
