“True love never leaves, sometimes it just gets lost temporarily. Lost in pride and ego, lost in confusion and misunderstanding. But love being lost is never the end; sometimes love needs to breathe before it finds home again.”
me, sobbing: but no you guys, when Aziraphale said “I forgive you” to Crowley at the bandstand, it wasn’t for anything Crowley had done or said to him. Aziraphale believed that this really was the end of times, that Good would triumph over Evil, that Heaven would triumph over Hell, and that all demons and every evil thing would be destroyed… including Crowley. Aziraphale wasn’t just trying to make things right between them. He didn’t want to spend eternity without Crowley. He said “I forgive you” because he hoped it would turn Crowley back into an angel, thus saving him from being utterly destroyed when Heaven inevitably won the war. You guys. He was trying to save Crowley’s soul.
Imagine that a young woman is in a relationship with a rich old man. She needs him to pay for her tuition, rent, car, bills and clothes. He needs her for sex. The mutual benefit is not balanced. She would starve without him. But he, with all his money, could easily replace her with another just as pretty. They are not soulmates. They cannot be.
2) There is elemental compatibility.
If Water is the dominant element in your natal chart, and your boyfriend is Earth-dominant, that is a major sign that he is your soulmate. The compatible elements are: Water and Water, Earth and Earth, Water and Earth, Air and Air, Fire and Fire, and Air and Fire. Everything else is not.
3) Fixed energy dominates both of you.
This is in relation to the previous point. If you are Fire-dominant, and your wife is Water-dominant — Fire and Water being incompatible — this negativity can be overridden by mutual Fixed energy dominance. If you are a Leo dominant and she is a Scorpio dominant, there is still a big possibility that you are meant to be. This is because Fixed signs share the ideals of loyalty and stability.
4) Your skills are on par with each other’s.
If a man is a famous actor, and his husband does not work under the spotlight, but is a successful real estate broker, then their skills are on a similar level. Neither fame nor income is the criterion, but the level of reputation in their respective fields. There will never be a huge disparity between two halves of the same soul.
5) Neither of you has an ounce of fear.
Not of death, disease, failure, suffering or poverty. Such fear is present in all of us at some point. But fear of the other person’s cruelty or infidelity. Countless people in relationships stay loyal not out of love but out of fear of being found out. And countless more live in fear that their partner is betraying them behind their back. When either is present, you are with the wrong person.
6) Their touch does not feel foreign.
When kissing or making love, their body will feel like an extension of yours. Sexual or not, their every touch and embrace will be a true comfort to you. The body often acts as a mirror of the soul. If your souls are halves of one, your bodies will feel it too.
7) More than love, respect is shared.
Butterflies in your stomach, or romantic love as we know it, is just chemicals in your brain. That is why lovers are replaceable. Because the same chemical reaction can be triggered by different people. Our brain, and therefore our heart, do not really know the difference. But respect is a conscious choice made by our soul. Someone who can earn our full respect is likely to be the right one.
This list is a mixture of socio-economic, astrological, intellectual and emotional circumstance. But at the end of the day, you will simply know if they are the one.
Love is essentially self-communicative; those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. Those who receive love from others cannot be its recipients without giving a response which, in itself, is the nature of love.
True love is unconquerable and irresistible. It goes on gathering power and spreading itself until eventually it transforms everyone it touches.
Roger and Dominique Taylor’s wedding was held at Kensington and Chelsea register office on 25 January. Freddie and Mary went along as witnesses while, back at Garden Lodge, Phoebe and I gave Joe a hand preparing a small reception for after the ceremony. It was a happy occasion, and while the guests were leaving Freddie gave me a hug and a kiss. ‘Do you love me?’ he asked. ‘Yes, I love you,’ I said. I held him tight and we kissed. He constantly needed the reassurance that I loved him, and until the end would now and then ask whether I did. He knew I loved him, but he needed to hear me say it. Even though thousands of fans around the world loved him without ever having met him, the only person he seemed to want to know really did love him was me. His fondness for me made me feel very special. I’d never known anyone want my affection so much, and I was deeply flattered. And I loved him dearly in return.
❤️ When you close your eyes and breathe, you can’t help but imagine yourself with that person, can’t help but feel their touch on your skin, their smile lifting the corners of your mouth, their kiss setting off both a spark and a calm somewhere in your soul.
❤️ When you laugh, you crave the sound of their laugh mixed with yours. You want to tell jokes, just to hear the sound of their breath leaving their lips. You want to watch the way their head tilts back in abandon, the way their arms outstretch or cover their mouth unconsciously. You want to kiss that smile, melt it into yours. You want each moment to stretch and grow and last forever; time simply bears no weight when you’re together.
❤️ When something happens, whether good or bad, you want to share it with that person. You construct texts in your mind throughout the day of things to tell them. You can’t wait to put the phone to your ear and tell them all the little pieces they’ve missed, or open the door to their embrace and spill yourself at their feet.
❤️ You long to know all the tiny parts of them—the secrets, the stories, the lives they’ve lived outside of you. You want to know them, physically, emotionally, spiritually, completely.
❤️ When it’s three in the morning and you roll over, your arm drifts to their side of the bed, searching for their warmth or aching so deeply for their presence next to you. When it’s two in the afternoon and you’re yawning, you imagine what they’d say to you, or what they’re doing, a few cubicles or three thousand miles away from you.
❤️ You want them, all hours of the day. But not just their physical self. You long for a soul connection. You want their heart, their mind. You crave knowing them, understanding them, entangling your heart and life with them.
❤️ When you’re with that person, your heart skips, your palms sweat, your entire body buzzes with life. And yet, you’re overwhelmed by calm, by tranquility, by pure, numbing joy. With them, you are both fearful and fearless, wild and at rest. You want to stay up all night and talk, and yet, you also just want to lay your head against their chest and breathe in the silence.
❤️ When you think about your future, you cannot imagine it without them. You cannot see yourself days, weeks, months, years down the road without that person’s hand intertwined with yours. You unconsciously imagine the dates you will go on, the events you will attend, the places you will travel, the dinners you will cook together in a time down the road. Suddenly you aren’t scared of what lies ahead of you, but excited to know you have someone to share it with.
❤️ You fight. You fight to stay together, in spite of your differences, despite all odds. You don’t always want to be right, but to understand. You don’t want to walk away, but to stay, even when you are your most angry.
❤️ You don’t want to lose what you have, so you fight to find a middle ground without losing yourself. There’s this part of you that can’t seem to, and doesn’t want to ever let go. You fight because you cannot fathom no longer having them to fight with.
❤️ When you think about your life, you realize how blessed you are to have that person in it. You are thankful for the ways they challenge you, strengthen you, teach you, and let you bloom. You are inspired by their passion, by the way they care for you, by who they are, and are growing into by your side.
❤️ You aren’t so much worried about what the future holds because you know you have a friend, a partner, an equal, a force who will take on the highs and lows with you. You know that whatever you face, you won’t have to face it alone.
❤️ When you talk about them, sometimes you gush and can’t stop, and sometimes it’s as if you’ve known one another all your lives. Sometimes you’re overflowing with passion, talking about their hands, their eyes, their smile, their touch. It’s as if you’re a little kid again, admiring your crush with such wildness and desire. But sometimes you speak with such calm. You’ve settled into comfort, into familiarity, into a wonderful, beautiful tying of your souls that it seems you’ve always been together, that there never was a time before.
❤️ You desire them. You desire their mind, their heart, their soul. You want to support them at their weakest and inspire them at their strongest. You want to touch every part of them; you want them to touch and understand crave you.
❤️ When you think about their presence in your life, you want to be better. You’re inspired to become the best version of yourself and to fight to improve and grow and be all that you’re capable of for the both of you. When you wake up, you’re thankful, simply for another day by their side. You can’t help but fall a little deeper every day, and that’s scary and wonderful all the same.
❤️ You’ve never really thought about love, never really understood the weight of the emotion, or how one knows love or feels it in their lives. But with this person, you simply know.
❤️ You now understand that the saying was right, there are some things in life that cannot be explained, just felt. And this is one of them.
You can’t force love, find someone who makes you happy. Even if you think your doing it for the other person. Don’t try to fake love. It will only hurt everyone involved. Let yourself find real love, true love, love that makes you feel weightless and happy.
The last message that Captain Ri sent to Yoon Se-Ri was “Let’s meet again where those flowers bloom”
“Those flowers” are Edelweiss, the national flower of Switzerland, the place where they first met.
Edelweiss mostly grow on rocky mountain areas and are very hard to pick. Men have fallen to their deaths in their efforts to pick these flowers in the Alps.
This flower signifies deep love and devotion. Giving this to someone means that you’re willing to die for them, and that’s exactly what Captain Ri did for Se-Ri as he risked his life for her countless times!
My grandparents deeply loved each other for an odd 60 years, and they met in their late twenties. If I’d love someone like they loved each other right now, I’d have to live up until the age of 92 to experience all that which they experienced. Which is preposterous, ‘cause seeing how life has been going I’ll be lucky to reach the age of 70. Still, I have witnessed something completely out of the ordinary, and I’m only realizing just now that such a love is, in fact, the ridiculous dream I’ve been chasing due to my perceiving it as the most natural occurrence. It is my fallacy. I didn’t see how lucky those two were. And, perhaps, how lucky I am to at least have witnessed such a love in my lifetime. I guess in terms of luckiness, right now, I should consider myself extremely blessed if I’ll have a love-like endeavour that ends with some kids and a divorce at 50 plus these days. Not to mention anything remotely close to real love at all. The way they’d sometimes look at each other, man; I’ve only met one girl that ever looked at me that way. It’s a gaze, in her case, or rather a glance that I remember witnessing in my grandparents’s case, of complete understanding, acceptation, and tenderness; an almost telekinetic moving into purposed action; a speaking from soul-to-soul. She died at 88, he died 10 years later. And right before he did, he prepared us by saying, ‘Little Marie has been beckoning me in my dreams’. Since then; three days. And he waited until all his children surrounded him before exhaling his last breath. At home. At his terms. In his favourite armchair. Peacefully. It was the first non-struggling death I had ever encountered, after having witnessed many that were as a matter of fact gruesome and untimely. And, I’m not gonna lie, all of this is something I’d wish for all people as kind as they were, but it’s also something I deeply envy. More than anything, I am saturated in the knowing that I blew my chance at having such a love, shared lastingly. We fucking had eternity. And, if anything, I am deeply aware that come the day I must die, the soul I’ll be beckoning, or who has been beckoning me in due time, will only have had a relatively marginal physical presence in my life considering those 60 years of the once witnessed ideal, as she is not physically present in my life currently. The loss of our love; her loss, is a loss that transcends a lifetime. That transcends time. It is a truth that keeps resonating within everything that is not temporal about me. And when everything except that temporality decays and rots away, I can only hope there’ll be another life hereafter, and thereby another chance, in which we’ll meet.
Ich wollte dir einfach nur einmal sagen wie dankbar ich bin dich an meiner Seite zu haben. Denn du bist der einzigste Mensch der mir ein Gefühl von Freiheit, Geborgenheit und vollkommener Liebe geben kann. Eine Liebe die keiner mir jemals so geben konnte so wie du es tust. Ich liebe dieses Gefühl von Liebe das du mir gibst. Es fühlt sich unbeschreiblich an. Es wird zwar nie perfekt sein doch ich kann dir versprechen, dass es echt und leibhaftig ist und auch immer sein wird.
Egal was passiert, du wirst immer eine wichtige Rolle in meinem Leben spielen. Denn wenn du nicht mehr da wärst, fehlt ein Teil von mir selbst. Ein Puzzleteil ohne das ein Puzzle niemals vollständig wäre.
Jedes mal wenn wir uns streiten brennt mein Herz aus Angst dich zu verlieren aber wir sind ein eingespieltes Team, dass alles überwinden wird. Wir geben nie auf und das macht uns zu perfekten Partnern. Denn wir werden jede Klippe überwinden bis wir auf dem richtigen Weg angekommen sind. Unseren gemeinsamen Weg.
Du liebst meine Fehler und überwindest mit mir jede Hürde. Jede Hürde scheint leicht zu erscheinen solang wir am Ende des Tages wieder zueinander finden. Denn alles wird mich immer wieder zu dir zurück führen. Weil du meine erste und einzige große Liebe bist und bleiben wirst.
Du erfüllst mich mit Glück und Freude. Du bist der Beste Freund. Manchmal auch der schlimmste Feind. Aber so funktioniert doch eine richtige Beziehung? Solange ich am Ende des Tages in deinen Armen liege ist meine Welt wieder perfekt.
Du gibst mir die Liebe die ich zuvor noch nie so erleben durfte. Mit dir fühlt sich alles anders an. Es ist nicht vergleichbar mit anderen Männern. Denn du bist einzigartig und unersetzbar. Ohne dich fühlt sich mein Leben kalt und einsam an. Denn nur deine Wärme lässt mich glücklich erscheinen. Ich will mich niemals mehr so kalt fühlen.
In deinen Augen spiegelt sich unsere gemeinsame Zukunft. Ich möchte noch so viele schöne Momente mit dir erleben. Denn nur du alleine bist meine Zukunft.
Ich liebe es einfach mit dir Zeit zu verbringen weil es jedes mal aufs neue was besonderes ist. Auch wenn wir nur nebeneinander liegen, machst du mich glücklich.
Du verdienst einfach nur das Beste. Merk dir das immer. Egal was passiert. Du bist ein Engel.
