Once it has been said that we are all spending our lives in search of the other half of our soul to be complete. It was believed that when we are born, the soul we are given was split apart and half of it was given to someone else. That person must be born on the same date.

Some people may think that their soulmate should be their closest partner. What if they are having an entirely different life with us? When we were depressed, our other halves were in their best days. When we just broke up with our partner, our other halves just got happily married. Or when we won the lottery, our other halves lost their job. We are like living in the opposite side of the world to take a balance of opposites.

Imagine one day that we were meeting our other halves, what would we say to them?

曾經有人說過,我們這一輩子都在尋找我們的「靈魂二分一」–和自己分享同一個靈魂的人。「靈魂二分一」論相信每個人其實只擁有二分一靈魂,出生時,另外一半靈魂跟我們分開了。那個人,必定是跟我們同年同月同日同時生的人。

有些人可能會覺得自己的靈魂伴侶會成為自己最親密的人,但是如果那位「靈魂二分一」是和自己相反的一個人呢?當你低落的時候,他/她正值人生的黃金時期;當你失戀的時候,他/她剛剛結婚;當你中樂透的時候,他/她卻剛丟工作了。你們彷彿就是生活在相反的平衡當中。

假如,有一天,你們相遇了。你會跟他/她說什麼?
