Last summer, as i was reading the infamous, Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, i annotated the passages that really touched me.
To be honest, i still don’t know if i completely agree with this theory, but i love it nonetheless.
“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.”
