There are two types of love

There’s the kind that you find
in Good morning texts and shy smiles
The kind that comes with
butterflies and stolen glances
The kind where
You laugh for no reason
And a smile is forever glued to your face
Sweet, simple, honest, pure

And then there’s

The kind that finds you
in 2 a.m. Phone calls
and the tears on your pillow
The kind that comes with
A war between your brain
and your heart
The kind where
Nothing makes you happier
And nothing makes you sadder
Passionate, overwhelming,
Intense, daring
And when it all comes crashing down

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 mate’s 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…

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
