i’ve spent too much time trying to fix people. i crave broken people, there is this feeling of helping them see some light that i constantly crave. but you’re different.

i’ve spent these last few weeks trying to help someone who is using me to fill this void in their lives. maybe i liked the attention and all the kind acts but now i realized i rather be alone. i never understood how people could cut people off so easily without a care in their head, until now.


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 mate’s 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…
