Love can't be short-term or short-living.. in which case you are persuading yourself into infatuation and circumstantial & temporary foothold.. It is ok to go through compromises and adjustments as long as your heart sees a light at the end of the tunnel..

Sometimes movies can provide you with a good framework to devise your thoughts.. Things always work out for you when you are young and beautiful.. whats more important is what after that? How will you survive when you are not all that important anymore?

There was this movie that was released in 2009, Up. The movie starts with how a young girl, full of dreams, bumps into a very ordinary rather boring boy, falls in love, grows old with him and then eventually she passes away... All this togetherness is shown beautifully in less than 5 minutes at the beginning of the movie.. But, after all, that is all anyone would want, right? Fall in love and grow old together with complacence... What else could be purpose of a marriage?

Of course, there will be fights and sometimes very dirty.. but as long as you see yourself together, it is all worth it... all the fights to tolerate and compromises to make..

Every day you go through mix of emotions, both at work and personally.. Not every day is great and sometimes its real shit and sometimes its smiles all the way.. But what matters is, whatever it is, you need that one being with whom you can just pour your heart out.. without thinking if you are being judged, if you are being wrong, selfish, egoistic etc. And of course, vice versa to hear back from the one..

It is so easy to get swayed away and say that there is no more love left in a relationship and walk away.. May be that is true for a few.. but before anyone gets there, imagine yourself no more with the one you loved and its all empty because you chose to move on culminating your friendship.. and there is no one walking with you, holding your hand and listening to your experiences or insecurities or pain when you are old..
To me, personally, this image flashes when things aren't right and I truly have felt growing old with one person and it continues to be the one..

I possibly can't believe in soulmate concept.. You make your own life on this planet (can't speak for extra terrestrial) and you and only you get to make your choices..

Companionship is a beautiful experience.. And you both get to see high and lows together and be an anchor in tough times.. You get to feel what the other person is thinking by being miles away.. There is an amassment of memories which you can never dissociate yourself with but rather enjoy as oneness :-)

After all, sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people..
