When Plato wrote nearly 2,400 years ago that love is nothing more than the desire to be whole again, the concept of soul mates was already ancient. In an age when divorce rates are disturbingly high, it is comforting to know that our ancestors also longed for love’s completion. Fairy tales have endured because their message touches a part of us that won’t give up hope. Happily ever after is within our grasp. Keep the faith that you can and will be whole again. Love’s promise is close at hand.
