“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. 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…” ~Elizabeth Gilbert
This gets a huge wow, mouth open, and momentarily speechless. This is very powerful, and I do believe that people show up in our lives to teach us valuable lessons on how to be the best human being possible. However, we have to be ready to receive the messages or we will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. Perhaps it's not mistakes we are actually making but growing at our own individual pace. Just thoughts. This was shared by Karma Korrupt.
