So What?

Today, while talking to my girl-friend I realized exactly where I was standing on dating and all the attention I'm getting these days. The best way I could put it was "So What?"

I think we all come to that point in our lives when we just don't care. It could be due to bad experiences, it could be due to busy schedules, or simply due to the part of growing up. I believe all those factors are at play. But most importantly, I believe it's due to my progressively developing self-love, self-discovery and self-worth. The point when you realize that the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. I know it sounds cliche and it's been said and will be said many times. But I don't mind being one more person to say: The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself.

I heard it so many times, and I recited it to myself time and time again. But before it actually happened, it was just words. Yes, it takes time, but one day it happens and you just feel it. You start listening to yourself before taking any step, before taking any action, before saying any word (maybe that's why I've been less vocal these days:). Anyway, you just know that it's You now and whatever it is you have to do you want to make sure it's aligned with your heart, mind and soul.

So you ask me, Where does dating fit in this?
Well, dating is just a social activity to experience yourself through others. Something like that :) So you become more philosophical about it. You definitely filter it more carefully, and become more precious with the time spent with others. Read between the lines: less dating, more about quality than quantity :)

And what about finding true love? The question most of us ask ourselves most of our lives, and the question that started this blog! Believe it or not, I have the answer.

There is nowhere we need to look or go, but within ourselves. Yes, true love, is the one you have for yourself and it's already within you. That simple, yet that hard to accept.

But once you find and cherish that love, the search is no longer outside yourself but within. and all other relationships simply become a beautiful reflection of it.
