Soulmates

I quite like parts of this post.

I’m not religious so I skipped the references to God and I found some things to think about.

‘We love to hear of people who “just can’t help who they love,” or people who “fall in love,” or “find the one person meant for them.” But what happens to these people when the unstoppable and uncontrollable force that prompted them to start loving, lets them stop loving, or love someone else? ‘

‘You could have a great marriage with any number of compatible people. There is no ONE PERSON for you. But once you marry someone, that person becomes your one person.’

‘My marriage is not based on a set of choices over which I had no control. It is based on a daily choice to love this man, this husband that I chose out of many people that I could have chosen to love (in theory, don’t imagine that many others were lined up and knocking at the door). He is not some illusive soul mate, not some divine fullfulment, not some perfect step on the rigorously laid out but of so secret “Plan for My Life.”’

She’s said some things I’ve felt but never been able to put into words. Very nice.

    This is very well said and I may have to re-post this to some young people who think once they find someone it is smooth sailing from there.
