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…
It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.
You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.
I can confirm that this is accurate
There are random Denny’s in New Zealand…
being told i was smart and above average from a young age was probably one of the worst things to happen to me because now i have a complex and question my entire existence when i dont excel at something right away
I’m sorry, but I don’t get this… I can agree that it’s not right or can be harmful to place heavy expectations on young kids or be overbearing/abusive or whatever. But would you rather be told you’re a piece of shit and you’ll never do anything with your life? When I was young, I was told that I was smart and encouraged to perform at above average levels. It gave me confidence and motivation to work hard for things and actually succeed… Just “being told” that you’re smart/above average is not what gives you a complex, but there’s definitely a lot more factors that tie into feeling such things.
