Soul Mates?

May 9, 2011

No, no, and no!  Nothing sounds more pathetic!  You probably would have been fine with at least 5 other people on the planet, maybe even 50 or 500.

It’s sad that people end up believing “meant for each other” stories.  Humans having an amazing capacity for standing outside of themselves to look for meaning. Yet this one in particular needs to be wiped out because it is juvenile and detracts from the real quality of the relationship.

That we choose to be in a relationship with our significant other is so much more important, and so much more valuable, than us being “fated to come together.” It implies will in a world of chaos. It implies coming together to build something and strength in the face of adversity. It implies choice.
