I was reading an article and came across this creature described in terms of relationships.  My curiosity was peaked, I mean I love any mythological or supernatural being so I was curious what this had to do with people and love.  Here is the definition I found:


Your dream person. Your perfect person. The person to whom you wish to be with intimately more than anyone else. Despite its rarity, everyone has a unicorn. But everyone’s unicorn is rare to them. This one person can sooth your soul and give you a sense of worth or completeness. Just the thought of this person can heal your innermost pain on the darkest of days. It’s the perfect person. 

That is seriously beautiful . . . really it is!  Plus, unicorns are awesome!!! 

So, here is my question to you . . . what happens when your "unicorn" or the person you love  the most is the one who " CAUSES your innermost pain on the darkest of days"?  Well, that sucks to think about, doesn't it?

When Ed isn't acting out . . . or sex addiction isn't surrounding our world . . . he is my perfect person.  That is actually what keeps me here, Ed is what I always wanted in a husband and father.  

It has become harder though, since his last bender was so bad and I am much more aware of my inner pain.  Truly I have learned that nothing is perfect and happiness needs to come from within.

Is there really such thing as our "perfect person"?  I don't know the answer to that but I do know this:  
  • I am the only one who can heal my innermost pain
  • I am the only one who can soothe my soul
  • I am the only one who can give me a sense of worth or completeness

These things need to come from within myself.  I guess I am my OWN UNICORN . . . . .
