The missing piece.

I’ve never believed in soulmates or one true loves or anything else that reeks like it came from a Disney movie, but I do believe people are happier when they have someone in their life, platonically or romantically.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be someone you do the no pants dance with, just someone you can trust and confide in and know will be there for you, and vice-versa.

Me, I’d like to find that person.  I’m not a particularly romantic person, so I don’t know if a torrid, passionate love affair is ever going to happen for me, and that’s fine.  I can do without that, but being alone for the rest of my life?  I’d like to avoid that if I can.  That’s really one of my top fears in life, aside from death/fire/flying.  Does anyone else feel that way?  Are any of you afraid of never finding that one right person?

    Thank you for the post.
    I can remember feeling like this and the biggest step forward for me was being that person: “someone you can trust and confide in and know will be there for you”. I was selfish as a young man and at the same time lonely and it took literally years for me to realise that I had to change my aspect on life. I waited for Miss Right to come along and she didn’t. Then friends just happened and they reciprocated what I was putting out there. Because I began to care. Because I began to be there for folk.
    I expected nothing back and got so much. Still do.

    I miss having someone with whom I can be frank, totally myself and that person is not put off. My husband died in Aug 2012. His death was a great loss. One can’t confide in one’s own children even.

    Your words are touching. Like you, I believe one is not complete without someone who truly loves them. The thought of living life all alone is scaring. And I believe that the true essence of life is in finding that one person to share life with. It’s a true blessing when it happens. Sorry for your loss, time heals and life blossoms again! Blessings to you! 🙂
