They have built themselves a relationship. Like a marriage. It equates to a marriage, for sure. I don’t think they realize how close they are, when next year they won’t be so together every day. It will be tough. I can’t see them just taking off in two opposite ends of the Earth. They’ve been best friends for years. I just hope they’re good friends seventeen years down the road - as good as they are now.

“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 is 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 leave.

A soul mates 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 can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”
