First let us split this word into two, soul and mate. Does it mean that its two different people with one thought? Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Is a soul mate that one person or a number of group people? Are soul mates people who are supposed to give you support when you need it?
Soul mates, it has two words and too many definitions and views to it. I believe that you can count on your friends as soul mates. And once you find these people hold onto them because they are rare to find.
These people will provide you with different kinds of support. There is a kind of support you may ask for, and there is a kind that you don’t ask for, that is the kind that pops up when you least expect it to, and it gives you that boost.
