i’m currently reading the famous ‘eat pray love’ by elizabeth gilbert. i’m sure many of you have already finished this book as well as watched the movie. but i want to share with you a small passage that i really liked.
“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.”
this quote is taken chapter 48 where elizabeth and richard from texas are discussing about david.
sometimes, people wonder whether they would ever find and marry their soul mate. but we need to realise that a soul mate can be someone that comes and goes. some stay. some go. and this quote reminds me that people shouldn’t dwell on the fact that their soul mate have gone. we should be thankful that they came into your life and made you who you are.
