“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
Have you ever felt like there is something, someone, missing in your life? Felt as if you are not complete, as if a huge part of you is missing?
I have. For a long time I felt I am searching. But I never really knew what was missing or why I felt so incomplete. I went in and out of some really good relationships (some were shitty too) andI admit that I actually felt like Complete in one of them. At least for a while.
But then I still woke up looking, searching and longing for something more. Something that was missing. Something that would fill that whole in my heart, which although I felt happy and was loved never really disappeared. I asked myself often if it was only a moment, if the feeling of being whole would suddenly be there. Maybe it would just take a little bit more time. Maybe it was meant to be and I just did not feel it right now. Maybe it would develop over time.
You know how they call it the honeymoon period? When you have those butterflies in your tummy and can’t get enough of each other? But then it eases out and life kind of takes over and you realize that there is still something missing.
I asked myself if it really was missing or if I just got used to the person I was with. If this was just the normal way. As I said: honeymoon period was over and now the normal life starts. With all its ups and downs.
I guess life kind of taught me that it was not meant to be like this. I took the risk and continued my search and honestly, in doing so I might just have ended up chasing it forever.
“…and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment…”
I guess I was lucky. Lucky to meet the right person, my missing half, my soulmatei, by coincidence. And it was a different story.
The honeymoon period didn’t last forever either, I admit. But how would it not pass? I mean life is not only cookies and cream!
Although the honeymoon feeling with all those bugs flying around your tummy and the weak knees, the elevated heart rate has passes and turned into something special and deep. Something incredible.
I never felt that emptiness again. I feel complete. I have arrived. And I never want to leave 🙂
“Love is simply the name for the desire and pursuit of the whole.
Love is born into every human being; it calls back the halves of our original nature together; it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.”
