Soul Mates are Mythical Beings – Not Real People
Women, if you’re waiting for that One Special Amazing Soul Mate from Heaven, then Heaven help you. As Ralph Walden Emerson said, “How much of human life is lost in waiting.”
Soul Mate Schmole Mate. The only real soul mate is of the sole mate kind.
Haven’t we been told there is ONE PERFECT soul mate, and that if we just keep keepin’ on, not paying attention, we will meet this person? When we meet this ONE PERFECT person we will have the perfect everything – house, sex, and marriage – because that person is our destiny and we deserve it.
Hate to break it to you, ladies, but the idea of ONE special man in the universe who is perfect for you is ridonckulous. Waiting for the perfect man to fall out of the sky with your social security number tattooed on his forehead is not going to happen till hell freezes over. And that won’t happen till Roissy either moves in and orders it, or gets married (whichever comes first).
What you need to do is reframe your romantic lil minds. Imagine a bar of soap in your pretty brain cavity and scrub it out – be careful around the nucleus accumbens – don’t want to ruin that baby.
Wipe out all images of my knight in white shining armour coming to rescue me from my drab and dreary stepmother who is making me clean the cinders while my two ugly… and replace with reality aka the state of things as they actually exist.
That was the word population in 2008. Let’s make that number a little bit smaller, shall we?
That was North America’s population in 08.
You get the idea, smart people. There are A LOT of people in this world of ours – how can there be only ONE person who is right for you? If half are of the opposite sex, and even if only 10% of the population was datable, then that’s still a fricken huge number.
If you have a one and only soul mate you might miss him because his hair was a mess when you glanced his way – and then what?! You’re poop out of luck. Blame the universe, if you want to. Or, take responsibility for your romantic foolishness and accept that you are picking a mate on things other than prince-like qualities from Grimm’s. Perfectly imperfect men abound. Enjoy!
