I have debated this idea before. The idea of a soulmate seems like an optimistic idea at first, believing that we have one person out there who will make us feel blissful and become the most important person in our lives. Yet at the same time, becoming too preoccupied with this idea, waiting for the one person to walk into your life, could distract you from paying attention to your own life. In my opinion, you should feel complete on your own first, not wait around for someone else to complete you.
Meeting someone to become a positive addition to your life, someone to make you feel happy, is a reasonable dream to have in life. But we shouldn’t look for someone to “complete” us. Shouldn’t we be complete first? We should be confident in our identities before someone becomes the most important person in our lives.
But how do you know if you’ve met your “soulmate”?
I agree with Carrie’s soulmate, Big, who said, “You just want to be with the one who makes you laugh.”
