Soulmate?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Yin to My Yang.”


Soul Mate: Someone who is aligned with your soul and is sent to challenge, awaken and stir different parts of you in order for your soul to transcend to a higher level of consciousness and awareness. Once the lesson has been learnt, physical separation usually occurs.

Life Partner: A companion, a friend, a stable and secure individual who you can lean on, trust and depend on to help you through life. There is a mutual feeling of love and respect and you are both in sync with each others needs and wants.

I have a friend who is the total opposite to me. Extrovert, opinionated in the extreme, stubborn, a leader, charming when he wants to be, and an alpha-male. He can be infuriating. We sat next to each other on a training course ten years ago. I was expecting my son, and resisted any form of friendship with him. He joined our company soon thereafter and our families both relocated to Sydney at the same time. A few years back he worked in the same building as myself. After many years of trying he succeeded in getting a conversation out of me. He promised we would be friends forever. They have moved to another city. He said his promise would always stand, we would always be friends. Sweet-talker. He is different to all my other friends, being of such strong personality and with a temper. It caused me to realign my definition of friendship. Is it possible for heterosexual male and females to be friends only? Is it appropriate? Can I be friends with someone who has a temper and whom I fear on a deep level, like being friends with a lion? Do opposites attract? Does that make a soulmate? Another soul my own has attracted in order to grow and evolve. As opposed to the definition of life-partner, of which my husband is the chosen one.
