Some of you may know that I am a huge believer in the Law of Attraction. And what does the law of attraction state? That like attracts like. So where did this whole idea of opposites attracting come from? Can two completely different people really make it work together?
If you’ve watched my YouTube videos, you might know my boyfriend, Aaron. I’m not sure if it’s immediately apparent, but myself and Aaron are complete opposites, on totally different ends of the spectrum. He loves food, I’m the pickiest eater known to man; he plays sports, I sing and am more creative; he’s an extrovert and can talk to people with ease, whilst I’m an introvert who panic when she has to make small talk. He is not even slightly religious, while I currently believe and practice two faiths. He likes rap music that makes my ears bleed while I practice operatic arias that most likely pierce his frontal lobe and have given him a slight hearing problem.
Personally, I think this all makes for interesting conversations and, occasionally, colourful debates. Difference sparks interest, I’m sure of that. But what keeps it going? What happens when initial interest inevitably fizzles out, and you’re left with someone who views are so incredibly different to your own.
Sometimes, it doesn’t work. So then how are Aaron and I so different, and yet are in the longest relationship either one of us has ever had? I have a theory.
Some similarities that I have with Aaron. We both hate Trump, and have the same political views when it comes to UK politics. Check! We both have the same values and morals that we think a relationship needs to stand up. Check! We have the same sense of loyalty to each other and expect the same things out of the relationship. Check!
The thing about Aaron, is that I have never known anyone to be more right for me. I don’t want to sound like an absolute sap right now, but honestly. He has been immensely kind, patient and compassionate during what I can say without doubt is the hardest and most challenging part of my life to date. And when you find someone who takes care of you, and wants to protect you for the rest of your life, you really don’t give a fuck about the fact that he’s a fully fledged carnivorous aspiring stock broker, and I’m a plant-based vegan opera singer practicing Buddhism and Wicca.
Follow your bliss, and be with someone who makes you feel good about yourself. Life is too short to settle for less. When you find somebody who’s energy and vibration matches your own, you’re on a similar path, and they make you laugh and take care of you, don’t be put off by the fact that you couldn’t be more different at first glance.
