Soul mate

” Your problem is you don’t understand what the word means. People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of your self to you and they leave. ” Eat. Pray. Love.

whatever happened to the soul mate being this person who matches you perfectly and makes you happy for the rest of your life? Reading this made perfect sense though, it was an aha moment. Thinking about it, I think I may have already met my soul mate, and he did his job, then that was that. If anything, he definitely revealed that other layer of my self to me, and I’m learning to live with her now….
