goodbye guy

It's been a great last few weeks/months, but alas, it had to come to an end.
He's ready for the "next step" and I am not so we're parting ways and wishing each other well.

This excerpt from Eat Pray Love reminded me of him...

“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."

I really am very happy I got to be so close to him for the short amount of time we had. I've been making much needed changes in my life because he brought them to my attention. My life is finally going in the direction that I've been wanting it to and I don't think it could've happened without his help.

Oh but it's still a shame, I'm sad to see this relationship end.
