By far, the last blog on this topic has generated as much response as anything else I've ever written. A very hot topic indeed.
I think one of the key lessons I'm hearing and learning is to relinquish "who" has the potential to truly influence your life...your growth..when in comes to intimate relationships.
In other words...could it be possible that EVERYONE your have ever dated...or will ever date..is a soul mate???
It seems to make a lot of sense, as anyone you or I have, or will, date, influences who we are and who we become.
One person may challenge your patience, while another may help you learn how to set healthy boundaries.
Someone else may be a great teacher for you sexually, yet another may be a reflection to you of your overpowering ego...or need to be right in all too many disagreements.
Some may show you the need to learn to fight for love...yet another may show you how to walk away with grace.
And then there is the one who mirrors your beauty in a fleeting comment. Another may help you go deeper on a spiritual path, and yet another may greatly influence how you raise kids or handle money.
Hmmmmm...do you see a pattern here?
Everyone you engage with intimately, regardless for how long, may just be a perfectly placed soul mate.
Slow down, and think about this.
As it means that every former lover, is an angel of love.
