What happens when you meet your soul mate? Do the birds start singing all at once? Do the leaves fall and pave your way with yellowish tinge to set up a romantic ambiance? Does the cupid celebrate on his success? No.
The concept that someone somewhere is out there for you waiting, is slightly disturbing. When you meet that someone, does he accept you with all the curves and shapes you are gifted with? No matter how much our parents teach us, do not judge a book by its cover, they ultimately fall for the looks first. No one falls in love with your personality at first sight. None of us really sees the inside first. Are we that shallow? Yes. Now, the real question is, ‘What if you never find your soul mate?’ What if you are just stuck with a mate who has a soul? ‘He is definitely not the One for me’ phase and ‘I should look for someone better’ phrase usually comes when we are hit with the concept of ‘Soul mate’.
The basic human nature that has evolved over the years is that we tend to find something better than we already have. Truth be said, humans are never satisfied. We want more. Hence the concept of Soul Mate. This concept gives you an optimistic attitude towards the most depressing truth of life. The odds of finding that One person among a million people is almost impossible. The gods have orchestrated this for us to fail. However, what matters the most is finding yourself first. The true purpose of your birth, your goals, your ambitions need your utmost attention. When you find yourself, you will know that you are your own Soul mate.
