I find that the more things are up in the air, the more I gravitate to my “true self”. My true self is a romantic and an optimist. Of course we all have some self serving fatalistic stuff in our inner being mixed with a little despair.
I find that the toughest part about being a romantic at heart, as am I, is that our ideal is so far above what mere mortals (non-romantics) conceive is love. We romantics spend much of our lives alone and lonely because of our dedication to that perfect love. We are all so unique that no one has the same finger prints… Not even identical twins. There are over 6 Billion people on earth. So, finding your one true love in 6 Billion minus 1 people may take some time.
Ironically, the older I get, the more I believe that the romance is truly unattainable but the more closely I cling to my beliefs in that love. Only time will tell if this is a segment that will appear in my life’s storyline. I hope on.
