Your soul mate, your partner, your other half.
Throughout our upbringing we’ve always been led to believe that there is only One person that is for us. It is true to a certain point because if you choose to live the rest of your life with this person, then they will be “The One” in your life. But before that, when you are looking for that person, you don’t know who will be “The One” so you go around trying to find them through dating.
But if the relationship goes south, we will still try to fix it with all our might. It may work, it may not and when it doesn’t people get bent out of shape at this because they can’t possibly think of themselves with anyone else as they believe this person is “The One”.
Well think of it this way. Surely when you’ve walked around in your daily life, there must have been more than just one person who has caught your eye. Whether it’s a guy or girl (depending on your preference), there’s always been more than one person that we’ve noticed and thought “Wow, they’re cute”, showing our instant interest in them.
Yet if we’ve shown interest in more than one person, why would we assume that there’s only one person out there for us?
It’s because we take the meaning of “The One” too literally, “
there’s only one person out there for us”, no, because if that were the case then we’d only ever have interest in just one person and no one else. If that were the case, what if your “soul mate” or “the one” lives on the other side of the world?
You may never meet them and that’s that since if there is only just one person for you to be with, you’re not going to be interested in anyone else around you and may wind up alone.
In our every day lives, we show interest in more than one person around us because there’s more than one person out there that is great for us!!
Hence, we can move from relationship to relationship after one ends. We can find new people to date, new boyfriends or girlfriends because there is more than just one person for us out there.
Don’t throw the title, “The One” around so casually, the person you’re with isn’t “The One” until you’ve both decided ( and I mean truly decided) to live the rest of your lives together.
