Not every journey is about finding love. Sometimes it’s about finding yourself.
Every single fairytale ends with the princess finding the great breathtaking love in the face of a charming prince. Why no one tells us what happens after that magical moment? So you’re telling me that my life will be wholesome and purposeful only if I find this dreamy love?
Is finding love the purpose of every journey?
And by finding love, I mean meeting the one person who will turn your life upside down, and make you feel emotions you never knew you had. The one you will want to spend the rest of your life with, happily ever after. The one who will fill all the missing pieces of your puzzle.
Right now, you are confused. You have so much love within you, and all you want to do is give it to someone. But no one is ready to receive it yet. You feel like everyone else has a special someone but you. And perhaps you wonder why you struggle so much to find your true soulmate. All of this is making you feel incomplete and even worthless at times.
Guess what? You don’t need someone else to feel complete.
What if now is not the right time for you to find love? What if you need to find yourself first? Think about it.
Maybe what you truly need right now is to get in touch with yourself. At this part of your journey, you need to spend some quality time in your own company. You need to experience the world through your own lenses. Embrace your true nature.
This has nothing to do with finding love. It’s all about you now.
You are given the amazing chance to start living your life the way you’ve always wanted to. To find yourself, you must first lose yourself. So go explore the globe, say ‘yes’ to adventures, make a few mistakes on the way. Find what brings you joy. All you have to do is learn how to be alone without feeling lonely.
Maybe right now your journey is about finding your true self.
This doesn’t mean you are never going to find love. Maybe now isn’t the right time for it. Maybe life is preparing you for greater things. Or perhaps love is waiting for you to grow up and go through some essential life lessons until you are ready to fully accept it in your life.
Right now, life is challenging you. You need to go through all this, to become the person you always wanted to be. Once you realize that, you will welcome those challenges with open arms.
It’s time for you to understand that you are not born with the sole mission to be someone’s other half. You are not a half, you are a whole human being. Maybe this part of your journey is here to remind you that to love someone else, you first need to learn how to love yourself.
So, instead of waiting for the imaginary, fairytale love to knock on your door, learn how to be happy by yourself. Invest your energy into doing the things you genuinely enjoy. Give some of that love you keep for someone else to yourself.
Self-love is essential for self-growth. Embrace that.
We all want to live in a magical land, where love is the answer to all of our questions. The truth is, all the answers are already within you. You just need to find yourself first.
