Remembering Eat,Pray and Love

3 Jul

Since Elizabeth announced she and the guy she fell for by the end of her journey are seperating and people are going insane.

I guess the last time i was shocked that two people decided to part ways is when my parents did.

And then i grew up -or so i claim- and i got shocked in most of my relationships, no matter the shape or form; relationships arent a gurantee. Marriage isnt a gurantee, promises and vows arent as well.

Feeling safe in a relationship is blissful. But taking that relationship for guranted as eternity is scary and fictional.

Hearts, heads and emotions are so magical and so interesting to be honest! Love starts as a chemical reaction in your head and your mind starts to act accordingly. 

So, you will work hard on your love to make it work, and sometimes you just give up and sometimes if that person is not compling that chemsitry in our head stops! The intensity decreases.

And thats okay!

It is scary, i know but it is okay.

Heartache is not an easy thing to pass. Specially if you have the idea of “this one is gonna last” anchor in your mind. 

Believe it or not, the”love” feeling is not a basic feeling. It is a mix of two feelings! Yeah! I know crazy stuff!!

Well, anyway i can talk aboht that topic forever, so without further ado. Ill share two of my favorite parts of the conversations in the movie and book.

Btw for me in thats my preffered order of thr movie( pray, eat and then love).

——
1) I’m not laughing.” I was actually crying. 

“And please don’t laugh at me now, but I think the reason it’s so hard for me to get over this guy is because I seriously believed David was my soul mate. 

”He probably was. Your problem is you don’t understand what that word means.

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’s 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 they leave. And thank God for it.

Your problem is, you just can’t let this one go. It’s over, Groceries. 

David’s purpose was to shake you up, drive you out of your marriage that you needed to leave, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in,

make you so desperate and out of control that you had to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master and beat it. 

That was his job, and he did great, but now it’s over.

Problem is, you can’t accept that his relationship had a real short shelf life.

You’re like a dog at the dump, baby – you’re just lickin’ at the empty tin can, trying to get more nutrition out of it.

And if you’re not careful, that can’s gonna get stuck on your snout forever and make your life miserable. So drop it

———

2) “But I love him.”

“So love him.”

“But I miss him.”

“So miss him. Send him some love and light every time you think about him, then drop it.

You’re just afraid to let go of the last bits of David because then you’ll be really alone, and Liz Gilbert is scared to death of what will happen if she’s really alone. But here’s what you gotta understand, Groceries.

If you clear out all that space in your mind that you’re using right now to obsess about this guy, you’ll have a vacuum there, an open spot – a doorway.

And guess what the universe will do with the doorway? It will rush in – God will rush in – and fill you with more love than you ever dreamed. So stop using David to block that door. Let it go.
