Reassesing Love

“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…”  ―Elizabeth Gilbert

I'm at the office and have nothing to do, so I roamed around Thought Catalog as I usually do. Then this hits me. 

It feels kind of good to know that someone knows you that well. It feels great when you realize someone slaps you in the face because they know you're going to heal and become stronger. I also think this statement doesn't goes vice versa. If you're lucky enough, you'll meet a very few individual who might become your soul mate, but they might have they're own instead of you. You can be your own soul mate too. A soul mate doesn't has to be the love of your life. You don't belong together. "Belong" is a bad word, especially when it's unrequited. Because to love someone with expectation to be loved in return is overrated. It doesn't go that way.
