Soul Mates-What is one?– I found this in a book and it made me think. I like some parts of it….see what y’all think about it.
\"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 yourself to you, and then they leave. And thank god for it. Their purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.\"
I’ve met my soul mate, and many of these things did happen. He tore down my walls for sure, and broke my heart open a few times. Anyway….I’m curious what you all think about this \"definition\" of soul mate.
