Elizabeth Gilbert on Soul Mates (Eat, Pray, Love)


“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 persona who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A soul-mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart our ego a little bit, and tear down your walls and smack you awake. 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…”  – Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
