When we met, neither of us knew what a spiritual awakening was. Neither of us knew the term twin flame. We tried to stem the tide of hurt; everything from porn to affairs outside our marriages to prescription drug dependence to alcohol and food abuse. They didn’t work.
We told each other the truth, first. We admitted to all the lies we had told each other in a relationship based on lies. We began to share raw truth about ourselves. We told our biggest, dirtiest secrets to each other. And through it all…we kept coming back to each other and falling more in love.
I didn’t know anything about myself anymore, because I’d lived a life built on decades of lies. I see how lost I was reflected in my face in that picture. When it was taken, it was still two years before I ever looked up the term ‘twin flame’.
