Something that I've been thinking a lot about lately,is the subject of true love.What is true love?Is there such a thing as a 'soulmate'?
The 2 pictures above perfectly describe my idea of what true love is.I feel that there is no such thing as a soulmate,or at least not that a soulmate is necessarily your husband or wife.I also think that you can have lots of soulmates.People/animals that you are meant to meet or have in your life.
It makes me very sad when movies and books and tv shows put forth this unrealistic image of what real love is all about.It's not about having passionate sex in all these weird places or staring lovingly into each other's eyes while riding horses in a beautiful valley.No,real love is going through everyday life,all the bad things,good things and just plain boring things,and at the end of the day,being so grateful to have this person in your life,because they,in no matter how small a way,makes your life that much better.
True love is fighting with that person,sometimes feeling as if you're crazy for being with them and not always being on speaking terms,but still loving them more than anything,and wanting to see them,even though you are mad at each other.
I don't know,true love is different for every person,but I find love stories where people live their whole lives together,doing everyday things,to be the most romantic of love stories.I don't much care for those super charged love stories in the movies where the lovedup couple kill for each other because they love each other so much or are so passionate it makes the screen mist up,because in real life,it isn't always like that.
Why do I care about this so much?Because I think the fact that lots of people expect every relationship to fullfil those unrealistic expectations created by movies,etc. causes them to not want to work at any relationship,because if you go by what the stories tell us,true love comes to you,and chooses you,and stays with you no matter what.No work required by you.Which we all know is total crappola.
So,tell me.What do you see as 'true love'?
