Soular (support)System

The other day my Hayati reminded me of this quote from Eat, Pray, Love:

“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…” Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

I was then reminded of how “tender” I can get lol.

Last night, my homie allowed me to be crazy and irrational our entire phone conversation. Then, right before we hung up, he told me to STFU and STOP.

He is my soulmate.

Yesterday, my girl said something. Then, I said something. Then, we both disagreed with each other … with the utmost respect.

She is my soulmate.

Earlier today I had a heart to heart with one of the only people in the world that I trust my life with. And with one sentence, she verbally grabbed me by the shoulders and shaked the shit outta me.

She is my soulmate.

A few hours after that, I told one of my best friends to stop acting like a pretentious idiot and “I love you,” in the same sentence.

I am his soulmate.

And everyday, she manages to find a way to break me apart (without breaking me down), then make me stronger (without building my ego), and makes me remember the things I forgot or never knew about myself. BOTH good and bad.

She is my soulmate.

Some people are lucky to have fallen in love, even if things didn’t work out at the end. Others are luckier to have found their soulmate. I’m blessed to have found 5 of them.

Lonely, but Not Alone (Written 01.13.21)

Don't tell me not to feel lonely. You don't know what lonely is. I've spent many moons dancing by myself, and solo sunsets staring into my own eyes. Yet, I'm still here scratching and clawing and flou
