I asked on Twitter if people believed in soulmates. Vincent wrote an entire post to answer my question, so I thought it’d be fare for me to do the same.
Do I believe in soulmates? Yes. Why? Because I’ve met a few of them. I think soulmates are people with whom you fit perfectly at a certain time in your life. You know they have something to give you, they’re like keys, and you play the same role for them. Besides, you can feel the connection. It’s a unique and deep feeling. But I don’t think soulmates are only about romance. They can be friends too. And sometimes, they’re your soulmates for a very short time. Not that it’ll all disappear, but the connection might change. And, let’s face it, life’s not always fair.
In French, we say “l’homme/la femme de ma vie”, which means “the man/woman of my life”. Well, I think we live different lives in one life, which you could also call phases. Some of them are shared with a special someone, some are spent alone, some last only one evening, and others many years.
And what about the “he/she’s the one” feeling? I don’t know. There’s magic, but there’s a whole lot of other things too. And our intuition can be wrong.
What do you think?
