Im Not Alone, But I Feel Lonely... Where Is My Other Half?

...I belive and think long time already, that there are no such people who would completely understand me etc... and also i know, that still there are people, who care.. really do care.. and try to understand... and I do appreciate it... But... I feel so damn lonely sometimes... I feel like an alien.. I feel Im alone, even when surrounded with "close" people...
Am I just silly and complaining too much..?
**
Anyways, I escaped... I left those dear ones behind for a while.. I came to do what I belive I like most... travel... I took a trip.. its pretty far from home... we have 6 hours difference in time, it was 8 hour flight... so its pretty far...
I wanted to understand if I still would feel lonely.. well, yes i do..and i feel also stressed becouse of different culture and language...
**
I do not know what I want.. maybe deep inside I still dream about the prince (or princess or whoever) who would come and understand me, who would be my other side in this life... Do you know this mythic story, [Greek philosopher] Plato describes a world where there were creatures who were like two people with their backs put together, and then they got separated... and now those two halves are alone in world, searching for another one... It is rare that two halves actually find each other, but when they do it is as if they become complete again...

THAT is what I am still hoping inside me... Hoping to find my other side...

You're not alone. Many of us are waging the same war in search of our symmetrical half. I am currently experiencing the same feeling. And while it's not enjoyable doing the searching; I do believe that when I find my other half it would be worth the time and effort into searching. I love the reference to Aristophanes's story. Don't give up hope, it will happen. :)

This is a beautiful writing dear. You are searching for your soulmate, your true companion. He will come, one day when you least expect it there he will be and forever yours.
