subject line: I am my own other half. August 19, 2015 by Hannah Brencher san francisco, california I used to buy into the idea that every soul had a mate. I thought that I would someday find my other half and life would be perfect. Then as I got older I started to believe that I would never find my other half, but life would still be perfect. Then I met you and nothing made sense at all. Falling for you forced me to realize that putting all of that pressure on one person to be that missing piece of me is not only unrealistic, but also so terribly wrong. The fact of the matter is that we are complete on our own, but sometimes we don’t realize it until someone comes along and helps us discover our missing pieces hidden inside of us. So I wasn’t totally wrong. I did find my second half one day, I just didn’t know I would find it in me.
