Never Give Up Hope!
I wanted to share my story as I have spent the past few years of my life scrolling through these stories hoping they would help me keep my faith that one day it will happen, I will meet my soulmate. They did help and I did find my soulmate.
I spent my entire 20s pretty much single. I wanted more than anything to meet my soulmate, I was determined I wasn’t going to settle and that the right person was out there for me. My friends said I was too picky and as I crept closer to thirty, I began to believe that maybe I was. There were a lot of tears over the years, some low times when I couldn’t understand why I had not met him yet and then worry that it might not happen at all.
I became obsessed with the LOA. I studied it religiously and lived my life by it. But, the main and crucial point that I was missing was to let it go!!
In December 2018 I finally got to the point where I just had no more energy to give this part of my life. I was exhausted and fed up, another year had rolled by, my 30th year and I was still single. I just stopped caring anymore. I went to the bank and set up an account so I could save to buy a house on my own. l started planning a life for myself in 2019 and stopped putting pressure on myself to meet my soulmate. To be completely honest, it felt good, it felt really freeing to take the lid off the pressure cooker and take a well-deserved break. I’m sure you all know where this is going!
In the first week of January, I matched with a guy on a dating app. I’d always hated the idea of internet dating. I wanted to meet some organically but at this point in time, I just wanted to go and have a nice glass of wine in a cozy country pub on a Sunday afternoon with some nice company, so I had no expectations. I had the most wonderful date with an incredible guy who turned out to be everything I had been waiting for!
Now we are now living together and share the most amazing life together!
For anyone reading my post, if you take one thing away from this, please do not give up hope. It will happen and it’s all down to timing. I realized when I met him that even though I have been ready for the past few years, he wasn’t! He was living at the other end of the country building his career. I do believe that my positive attitude and belief helped to bring this amazing human into my life. Never settle, I promise it will be worth the wait.
