I realized that I cannot unlove you. So now my heart has a new prayer. I pray that you’ll find happiness. And in return , I will find mine. I pray that someone will love me the way I loved you. And may I love this person a thousand fold more than you. By then I’m sure my heart will stop looking for you.
When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.
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.
