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 mates 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, then introduce you to your spiritual master…” —Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia)
quite rude. but it is the truth, perhaps.

i visited several personal blogs today (some belong to ppl i know). some are funny, some lack update, some gives me (what shi calls) second-hand embarrassment. haha. some ppl probably feel that writing in english gives better/cooler impression of their blogs but I SERIOUSLY DONT THINK SO.
okay i write mine in english - but thats cos my bahasa suck.
anyways i find bahasa very hm, how to say, not-less-boring than english. i really think young indons should force themselves to write in english just to sound cool like in those blogs i just read. really, its not how language works. all the more they are your blogs! theyre supposed to be your tool of yknow, letting out. to write yourself out, to express your thoughts and ideas and interests. how can you do all that if youre not even sure of what youre saying? how can you get the satisfaction of self-freedom if you restrict yourself in limited vocab and grammar knowledge?
so poor thing, i say. oh and i found many who copy-pasted fashion news onto their blogs. so un-cool. lol.
