Over the years, the meaning of love has diversified greatly. With the advancements in technology, growth in societies and the cultural blend, there are thousands of things involved when it comes to falling in love.
As humans, we have an instinct to constantly change and adapt to our environment. Thus, we start letting go of the old ways to love, care and woo someone off their feet. Instead, we have started to approach the realistic way of living. So much so that I barely see people talk or believe in soul mates or loving one person all their lives. It is sometimes disappointing and mostly worrying, it really gets you thinking, whether today’s generation, you and I, are giving up on love?
Are we calling quits on the greatest phenomenon of our lives? What really changed and how have we changed with it? Maybe we just need to be reminded of the old simple ways so we can find our way back. So here are the things about why we give up and what should we actually do.
1. WE BELIEVE “SOULMATES” IS A FAR-FETCHED IDEA
I have no idea how this idea changed over this period of time but I believe you truly fall in love once, only with your soul mate. Now that doesn’t mean that you might not love someone you have been with, we all love people in different ways but we often mistake them for being someone we want to love all our lives. We have lost the patience of waiting for “The One”. We just want start off our lives and be with someone even before we understand the intricacies of a relationship and start calling it love because that’s what everyone does.
So you keep on calling every partner of yours your soulmate because ultimately that what you want, your true soul mate, but keep settling for something else.
I’d say, wait, wait for the right person. Don’t rush into a relationship just because they seem nice. Seems-nice and have-never-seen-anyone-like-it are two very different things. Do not confuse the two, when the latter one comes into your life, trust me, everyone else will feel like a joke to you.
