But I think it’s intoxicating when somebody is so unapologetically who they are.
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 person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, 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…

I made some basic goals for myself that I want to reach by the time I’m 65, because I don’t want to end up having lunch with a young woman one day and telling her that I still can’t accept myself. I don’t want my experience of being a woman to always be dragged down by impossible or at least painful expectations for my appearance. I don’t want to be forever stuck in a cycle of trying to tweak the way I look until I look closer to perfection, because there is no such thing as perfection, and because there is always something else to tweak.
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
Let everything happen to you: Beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
We’ve got two lives, one we’re given and the other one we make.
One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.
