    Elizabeth Gilbert
    “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...”

    “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world
    but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do

    well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
    Rebecca Katherine Martin
