In the movies you see examples of people being supposed ‘soulmates’, the fact that everyone on this earth has one certain person that they are destined to fall in love with. You see soulmates most clearly when it’s a couple that have enormous difficulties being together but always find their way back to each other. However does the process of soulmates stop people from going out looking because they believe that destiny will control it? Do soulmates defeat the point in dating because that special person will find you? Does is stop you from living your love life because you’re constantly thinking about who could be your ‘soulmate’?
I sort of believe in soulmates. I would like to fully believe in the possibility of soulmates but it almost seems like a fairy tale. What I do believe is that there is someone that you are meant to end up with but then I think that sometimes life gets in way so you just have to let it go. Sometimes the person that you are meant for is with some body else, maybe your soulmate is about to leave this world, maybe your soulmate and you just have really bad timing and it just doesn’t work out. So, you just have to give up the idea of soulmates; however special and romantic that concept may seem.
My hope for the future is to have a family. I would love more than anything to be someone’s wife and the mother of children (while also being a powerful woman and owning whatever job I do). My perfect idea is to marry a man that I love and have 2 beautiful children with him. But I know that life sometimes doesn’t go to plan so I’m already preparing myself for possible difficulties. If I’m married but unable to have kids, I would either get someone to carry my child or adopt. My cousins are adopted and it’s just amazing because not only are you giving the children a better life you are also giving the parents the gift of a child. And if I’m not married by a certain age I would quite like to try and get artificially inseminated because I would love to be able to carry my own child. I told my mum and nana this the other day and my mum said ‘I’ll remind you of that while you’re going through labour’!
I also believe in soulmates because of the example that my parents set for me. My mother came over from another county to work out here and happened to meet my Dad almost as soon as arriving here. My mum always said that as soon as she saw my Dad, it wasn’t love at first sight, but she felt that he might be in her life forever. Their relationship with each other has given my hope for souls mates because they love each other very much and I believe that it’s fate that they meet each other. My mums also always says that she only was meant to stay out here for 6 months but stayed for over 20 years. I’m so incredibly lucky to have two loving parents that both love each other and my brother and I.
So, do you guys believe in soulmates? Do you believe in the possibility that right now somewhere in the world there’s someone you’re destined to fall in love with? Do you believe in the power of the universe or do you decided your own fate?
