The Soul Mate Myth

Today I had the most amazing revelation, what if soul mates do not really exist? What if this is just another Hollywood tale we get fed to sell movies and books? ‘

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, drive you out of that bad situation, 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’ Richard from Texas.

We believe that we can get everything we need from one person and then our lives will be complete, this is complete and utter madness, treat every person in your life as a teacher. Not in the sense that they tell you what to do or influence your decisions but by learning about their experiences and their views and weighing them up against yours, it all adds to your life and your story if you choose to take it on board.
