The answer to that question is yes. But do they exist in the way that we want them to? I believe the answer to that is no. A high majority of people in this world have conceived an idea of what it means to find the person or “the one.” It seems that a lot of people believe that they have found this right person when they are in a relationship that works. A relationship that is balanced and always striving for a better day while appreciating the day before. A relationship between two people who compare and contrast in ways that builds and enables each other to grow. While all of that is true, I suggest that someone can find the right one without being in such preferable situation.
I believe that we will all come across Mr. Right and Ms. Wonderful at some point in our lives. We will all meet the person whom we might consider perfect and built specifically for us. We will find the person that we feel is the best possible mate for us. And it’s the best feeling when you realize who this person is and that you have found them. But what happens these feelings are not mutual? Does that mean that this person is not who we thought they were? It certainly does not.
I myself have seen what the right one looks like. But the fact that I was denied does not change the way that I looked at her before I found out that we would not be together. I still see her in the same light of perfection that I saw back when I thought I had a chance. The fact that I didn’t have a chance doesn’t change the compatibility that I saw between us. The only thing that changes is my newly gained knowledge that you don’t always get what you want and that the feelings of the past often prove to be irrelevant. This isn’t a fantasy novel that suggests that we are entitled to the person we believe is the right one. We are entitled to nothing and we only get what we are given. No amount of wanting or deserving feeling will get us what we’re wishing for.
I have had the pleasure of finding what I believe to be the best that there is for me. Regardless of the results, I can say that I am content knowing what it feels like to go for what I truly want. I challenge the reader to be brave enough to figure out what you truly want. A lot of us hide behind the fact that we don’t know. And you can’t seek out what you don’t know. But only the brave will find out whether or not Mr. Right and Ms. Wonderful share the same feelings.
