Okay, so after talking with a family member, some of the themes of the aborted post came up, thus this post.
In life, yes I would say I believe on love at first sight, likely mentioned before, but there are somethings much deeper, and the concept of “soul-mates.”
Though less about me stating, “oh I’ve found my soul-mate, oh life is great, etc. the theme is more about finding oneself. In finding that person, I do believe you can find the one, and it eventually not happen and/or even work out…whether it be timing, both at different places in their development, or the inability to handle.
I noticed that I found myself in this occurrence…and, not being a cynic, I had to ask myself, how much I like myself. You may ask, what do I mean…when you are in a position, that you end up looking at this person, noticing and observing this person, and you see yourself reflected…it is almost frightening. It essentially boils down to a question my cousin asked on my behalf:
“Would you date yourself?”
