Love is not supposed to feel like pain. Love should liberate you from the bondage of attachment. Love is meant to empower you and become your strength. Love should make you feel worthy of yourself. Love is supposed to build you up and make you shine from inside out.
You will know it’s love when you find the one.
He /she won’t be coming into your life with a light over their head looking for you or shouting from rooftops announcing that they are the one. You won’t feel any butterflies in your stomach or have some fancy dreams like they show in the movies.
It’s going to be a very very ordinary encounter when that special person walks into your life. They will not attempt to stand out of the crowd with their talk and their behaviour.
They will be the quiet and comforting kinds. The one, who will listen to your nonstop idiotic jabber with a wonder in their eyes and a smile on their faces. They will think that you are a complete fool. They will even make fun of your every move and laugh at your nonsense.
But they will be kind, funny and safe.
You will feel like being in the safest place on earth when you are with them. You can sit with them in total silence and it won’t be awkward or boring.
They will win your trust before they win your heart.
They won’t be the most significant person to you at first, but you will be invariably drawn to them like a magnet. And when they become the most important person in your life you will settle for no other.
You will never question their motive but rather believe them wholeheartedly.
They will be the one who understands your mood by just a text message you send them. They will know and understand that you have your bad days and that you are not perfect in any way, but will stick around you in spite of it all. They will know how to cope with your mood swings and how to control your anger.
They will stand by you; stand by your fears and your dreams, your hopes and your insecurities. They will stand with you and help you build your confidence. They will motivate and inspire you.
They will respect you for who you are, never trying to change you or your beliefs.
They will let you live your life according to your whims .They will protect you and guide you.
They will definitely sweep you off your feet but it will be a slow gradual sweeping- the one you won’t even realize.
They will love you quietly in their own sweet way. But that love will be worth every ounce of its weight in ‘gold’
That’s when you will know whom your heart and soul belongs to.
Have you ever met someone new or even talked to them for a few minutes and suddenly you both realize like as if you have known them for your whole life. And it’s even more surprising when it’s just the first time you are meeting or interacting with them?
It’s like they just get you, and you get them.
You form an instant and a natural connection with them, with a comfort level unlike any other. You are drawn to them almost magically.
The conversation flows freely and they understand you, they resonate with you, and they share the similar values and beliefs. They believe in you, your passion, your philosophy, and your purpose. And you believe in theirs.
I think it’s one of the best feelings in the world.
Do you know that it is your soul tribe you have just connected with?
Yes it’s not bizarre! And not to sound exclusive, but they are part of your inner circle and you are in theirs.
It’s a little difficult to explain this if you don’t believe in it. I have had people who say to “it’s all humdrum. There is no such thing as a soul tribe”.
Well all I can say to such people is that “you wouldn’t know. You haven’t met yours yet. I have and I know”!
Have you ever felt all alone and vulnerable at times? Well let me tell you that you are never really alone on your journey. Someday one of your soul tribe will somehow cross paths with you and help guide you along the way. They will come into your life at exactly the right time. And when you connect with someone from your soul tribe, you will feel a sense of wholeness and peace wash over you.
They will be these wholehearted and passion-driven people. Their hearts will be big, their thoughts deep, and their words loving. They will know exactly what you want to accomplish in life because they can sense your energy and they will help support you and accomplish that goal.They will not abandon you when you are lost, but will help you find your way back again. You can feel free to speak your mind and tell them your deep secrets without feeling vulnerable or rejected.
Trust me if you feel a strong connection with someone while you’re going through a tough time, don’t take this as a coincidence. Allow them into your life and nurture that connection.
Having people who really get you and your soul makes life so much more magical. You and your soul tribe are all on a journey. As individuals, but also together. Isn’t that amazing? Because together is better. Because don’t we all “belong to each other.”
Let no one deprive me of the wrinkles of my forehead.
Or the bags under my eyes.
It is the memory of the days,
Of how much I worried and cried.
Oh those tiny lines near my lips,
Show how much I laughed and how much I kissed.
The smile on my mouth,
Hides the words I didn’t say.
And the pain in my eyes,
Shadow the hurt that lies there.
These lines and these scars are mine.
And they make me beautiful.
They tell stories of,
All the hurt and the pain,
Of all the love and the gain,
Of all my victories and defeats,
And most of all,
These wrinkles …well they show you,
They show you the real me.
