“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
— Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte
Let’s talk about soulmates.
I’ve always been a skeptic. Or, at least when it comes to the traditional sense where soulmates are concerned. Soulmates are not bound to lovers, as this Emily Bronte (and many romantics) suggest. And there’s always room for more than one.
A soulmate is a friendship that instantly feels like you’ve known each other forever. A soulmate is a loyal pet attuned to your emotions. A soulmate is a loved one that defies time and distance and circumstance. They’re the people you would do anything for, and you know without a doubt they would do the same. Your souls are made of the same elements and they call to each other in times of smiles and tears.
Soulmates are the first person you think to call when something really really exciting happens.
Write about your soulmates today.
If you’re a fiction writer: who is your main characters soulmate? How did they meet? How does their relationship fit into the story? Think of some bubbly moments between them. Also, think of some sad or angry moments. Both are important in terms of soulmates.
