I’ve been thinking about soulmates again. And I think soulmates do exist, but not in the be all, end all, love only one-person kind of way.
Search for someone who challenges you to be better every day, while still loving you right now, unconditionally, for the mess that you are.
Soulmates are absolutely everywhere. In many many forms.
You need someone who will balance you out. Someone who is able to calm you down when you’re angry. Someone who is able to wipe the tears dry when you’re upset. Someone who is able to keep you steady when all you want to do is collapse.
Who was the person who had always held my heart and treated it with the utmost care? Who was the person who gently nursed it back to health each time? Who was the person who deserved my gentle heart more than anyone I had given it to? The answer was always there. It was me.
ENFP: Sitting half asleep on a beach chair near a lake, a book slipping out of their hands. A dog runs up to them followed by their attractive owner who apologizes profusely before recognizing the book the ENFP is reading.
He wasn’t your soulmate, he was a lesson – and what you projected onto him tells you everything that you need to know.
October: Someone who encourages you to be who you are and to not worry as much about what other people think.
He taught me how to fall and break and crumble. But he also taught me that I am stronger than I think. And eventually, I began to build myself back up. Without his hand to hold.
There is a connection that is deeper than love. Above all the physical and material belonging.
