What do you do if you've known your entire life that what would make you happy is to find the other half of your soul that's somewhere out there in the great-big world?
And you ache for it, yearn for it. That second part of yourself that will make you whole?
I'm been listening to a book on tape that has taken a romantic turn and now I'm maudlin. I'm so sad.
You see, I know, I've always known what I really want out of life. I've always wanted to "be happy." And that happiness, for me, can only come with the terrible, horrible soul-crushing, up-lifting, painful, joyful binding of me with another. The perfect "other," the one other that completes me.
And how sad is it and how true it is that from a very early age, I knew that I was going to be alone. I would make all my decisions on my own, I would not share my responsibilities with a special "other," nor share my milestones with that one person, either.
And I've not put myself out there. I haven't actively looked because of fear. And I'm damaged. I've had pain and disease inflicted upon me. And the character flaws that I was born with that seem to me I shall never overcome, have not helped. It seems they were perfectly fitted to compliment each other so that I will remain alone forever.
