So what’s a soul-mate for me? It’s a person with whom I have an immediate connection the moment we communicate. A connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. My soul-mate understands and connects with me in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when I am in touch. And when I am not around them, I am all the more aware of the harshness of life and how bonding with them is a really important part of my life. It is an affinity which you can’t explain but never take for granted. A soul- mate makes you more aware of the beauty in life and because I have been given a great gift I will always be thankful.
