In all honesty I cannot recollect how many times the question of whether I believe in soul mates have reached my ears, and words have exited my mouth without second thought. It is truly my belief that there is always some defining moment in life to where all bad habits are broken. Some of these defining moments come in death or near death situations, but if we are lucky as well as patient enough, they might come on beautiful, warm, breezeless nights like mine happened to yesterday. I was asked the familiar question, but thought reached me before vocal output did. Instead of the usual No I would give, a new answer seemed to be making its way to my lips.
“Yes, I do.”
Why didn’t I see it before? The answer could be that I just had not given in thought nor been very interested in the subject, which looking back on it now seems to be completely ludicrous to be lackluster about there possibly being someone else put on the earth, not solely for you, but in a loving sense for you.
Is it so hard to believe that there is a soul out there, whom thinks the same as you, feels in the unique ways we all as individuals claim we feel. Yes, there are billions of people in the world, what are the chances of your soul mate and you ending up in the same place right? That’s exactly it though, wouldn’t these similarities in individualism, ideas, thoughts, souls…. Not lead the both of you to end up on the same social network, or possibly even the same place in the world? If my theory is correct, and the theory of soul mates is correct the answer is yes. Maybe its not chance that were in college with a girl/guy that makes our heart flutter, or happen to strike up a conversation with a random girl/guy which happens to be the best human interaction you’ve had in days, and if your being honest with yourself months. Lets not confuse chance with fate, but let’s also not confuse destiny with simple accidents. Mainly though, let us think, and let us believe in one of the most beautiful and wanderlust theories in life.
