A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet — a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before.
Throughout my life, I have known the word “soulmate” be referred to as the one man you are meant to be with. The man who completes your soul and who is your other half. The man who fills your heart up where it is empty. The one guy who knows everything about you and knows exactly how to make everything better by just a smile or a kiss.
All of that may be true for some people, but what if I tell you that it might not be true? What if I tell you that you already have a soulmate and you haven’t even realized it yet? But here’s the catch, you do.
Our girlfriends are our soulmates. They are the ones that keep us going no matter what. They are the ones that support you through the hard times, let you cry on their shoulder at 3 a.m., pig out eating pizza while watching rom coms, and still love you even though you’re mad at them.
Your girlfriends will always be there for you no matter what, and you will always be there for them because you each other through the good, the bad, and the ugly. They are like the sister you’ve never had, and the funny thing is, you’ve basically already adopted yourself into their families – that’s a given.
I’ve recently learned that the people who stay in your life no matter what are the ones worth keeping and that the ones that walk away were never meant to be there in the first place. One of my favorite quotes is, “everything happens for a reason.” And when a friend walks out of your life for any reason, it is meant that he/she isn’t meant to be in the next chapter of your life. But the ones that stay – those are the ones worth keeping. Those people are the ones who are a blessing in disguise.
I am thankful I found my three soulmates in my life. Those three women understand who I am and not for something that I am not. They support me through the hard times, let me cry on their shoulder at 3 a.m., pig out eating pizza while watching rom coms, and they still love me even though I get mad at them. You don’t come across amazing women in your life very often, and I am extremely lucky that I found them. I have found my persons.
Thank you, Charlotte, for teaching us the most valuable lesson in Sex and the City history.
