When Your Soul-Mate Throws a Wrench in Your Plans

Every now and then, I wake up and wonder who the guy is in my bed and why there is a minivan parked in my driveway. I love the guy, and our daughter, and our cute little house in suburbia. But sometimes I do wonder how the hell I wound up in this life.

Why I Hated The Term Soul Mate (Until Yesterday)

Evelyn Lauer | Posted 04.04.2014 | Women
Evelyn Lauer

The notion that there is one soul mate for everyone is ludicrous. If you expand the definition, a soul mate doesn't even have to be romantic. My best friend is a soul mate; my son is a soul mate; a man I knew but never even kissed is a soul mate.

What we've built over the last five years isn't worth throwing away any more than my son's thumb is worth cutting off.

The Real Me

Several weeks ago I had that moment. With very little forewarning we were thrown into each other's path. It was as though the heavens above took mercy on me. Many years ago he had told me we were Soul Mates. I have always believed this. I still do.

"I could have had a number of young, firm, beautiful woman," was the way he put it, "but I realized that what I wanted was you." And he thought those words would make me swoon?

I have come to believe the answer to love, to finding our soul mate, is really finding intimacy within ourselves. If someone provokes irritation in you, this shows a weakness in yourself that needs to be elevated.

Don't Believe The Lies, God Doesn't Have A Perfect Match For You

Emily Timbol | Posted 02.25.2013 | Religion
Emily Timbol

I love my husband, but he's not God's match for me. God is not an omnipotent Yenta, spending His days deciding which coupling would lead to the easiest, happiest, most attractive twosome. He certainly isn't sending down Christian biased algorithms to profit driven websites.

I challenge you to take on change for the next couple of weeks. Little changes, safe changes if you want, but take on something. Try walking an extra couple of blocks to get on the train or bus at a different stop. Try a restaurant you've never been in.

From the beginning, her heart and mind and body were still attached (addicted to) the jerk. Equating sex with love, she was completely convinced that she would never feel in love with her husband.

People make bad decisions, sometimes knowingly and sometimes subconsciously. Maybe Michaele and Neal were "destined" to be together from the start. Maybe a lot of us are destined to be with someone other than who we're with.
