Reflecting on the year that's past and setting intentions for the one to come, I've realised how important it is for me to find love.
For a while now, I've been working on becoming ok with being alone and spending time by myself, finding out who I am, without the influence of those around me. It has been both demanding and liberating. I remember back to my 'people pleaser' days and remember feeling so lost, so empty, so inauthentic, like I was betraying myself. And now, feeling so comfortable with who I am, to the point of rarely feeling lonely, even when I'm alone.
However, in saying this, I also deeply feel that having love, an intimate relationship, a partner in life, a soulmate, 'the one', whatever you want to call it, is just a total game changer when it comes to a feeling of purpose in this life. Not even authentic friendships come close in my eyes. There is just something so special about sharing life and its experiences with one special someone that you hold a deep intimate connection with.
This song encapsulates this for me, well, perfectly. 😉 Being able to share stories, support each other, encourage each other, give love to each other, to dance in the dark, in each other's arms, barefoot on the grass.
Maybe it's my inner romantic talking, but I really feel like human beings have a deep-rooted need for true love.
