There is this very annoying, soul-sucking RUMOR circulating around the great expanse of the stratosphere. It’s destroying the lives of many fabulous young women with insurmountable brain power and big dreams.
So what is this ~dangerous~ rumor, I’m speaking of? The idea that finding love from another human being should be the ultimate goal in life.
Nah, babe. Finding love is not the ultimate goal. Finding yourself is the goal.
Don’t get me wrong, falling in love is a mind-blowing, rewarding, deeply profound, experience. I’ve been in love. It’s electrifying, terrifying, black magic.
But it’s not the only profound experience that will ever happen to you.
We screw ourselves over by spending all of our time searching for another person to fill the empty voids in our lives, rather than learning how to fill those vast spaces ourselves.
We exert so much energy into looking for another person to complete us that we end up neglecting the most important relationship we will ever have in our entire lives: the one we have with ourselves.
