No emotion is stronger than love. Some might be moved by anger, sadness, happiness, etc., but nothing can move a person more than love. It is the end-all when it comes to emotions and can be a driving force unprecedented by anything. But this feeling of love is elusive and isn’t always found very easily. When you think of love you might think of a soul mate; man or women. But soul mates are about as elusive as they come, and there are many people who go throughout life without ever finding theirs.
But not all of us believe in soul mates. I believe that there are certain people who are meant for someone, but on the other hand love isn’t something that is always constricted, limited, and set in stone. Love should be allowed to flourish anywhere and everywhere, even beyond the confines of a potential soul mate. Nevertheless when you find someone that you want to share you life with, it’s important to share more than that. You must give them a piece of not just your heart, but your soul. After all, they are a soul mate. “Giving someone a piece of your soul is better than giving a piece of your heart. Because souls are eternal” – Helen Boswell. This quote is perfect because soul mates truly deserve more than just the heart, they deserve the soul. This way the bond is strengthened even more so and you can begin the process of eternal, flawless love.
This kind of love isn’t just found in soul mates however. Some of us develop this strong of a connection with family members. Whether it be parents, siblings, or children, a real deep connection like the connection you produce with a soul mate can exist in your own family. But nothing worth while is ever easy to get to. Soul mates might be difficult to find, but easier to maintain; family is a different story. Family for the most part is easy to find, but very difficult to maintain. Loving your family is not always easy as it comes with its fair share of unhappy experiences, but its these experiences that act as reminders as to why you’re with these people. “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way” – Leo Tolstoy
