I used to be so obsessed with finding my soul mate. I thought that’s what would make me happy. It was my life mission. I honestly remember crying one night, this was my early 20’s, because I was sad everyone around me had met someone and I was still single. I just knew once I met my soul mate, we’d be happy and it’d be all rainbows and puppies and sea turtles. Then I met someone and fell in love and….it ended. So I’m back to the beginning now. But it’s funny, instead of wanting to find someone, now all I want is a peace of mind. That’s my life mission now haha. I’ve been traumatized! I would be perfectly content in a cottage in the woods with my dogs doing what I love. Never thought I’d feel that way. Yeah, it’d be nice to have a companion, but it’s not like I NEED A COMPANION OR I’M GOING TO DIE. And that’s how I was.
