interesting definition of a soul mate. it actually describes part of my past very well. according to this definition, i met my soul mate back in high school. i hardly ever talk about it because it was a very painful relationship. but when i look back on it now, i realize that it helped to shape who i am today. i think it made me a stronger person.

according to the definition, my hubby would not be my soul mate. part of the definition fits, the mirror part, i see in him things that i would like to be, but he doesn’t make me feel desperate or out of control at all.

in my opinion, this definition is only partly right, and a bit exagerated. i believe soul mates are better off because they have found each other. in my opinion, they help you learn things about yourself, but without the painful drama and they stick around for a while :).
