They’re stupid and deluded. You’re born alone and you’ll die alone. And who ever’s there in between is just there to stop you from being lonely before you die. If they choose to stick with you until your dying day, then that’s fine. But they’ll always have a bit of time left before they go. Soulmates do things together, right? Well, that should include death too. Yes, you could argue that the dying half would want them to live and be happy. But if they truly loved them then they wouldn’t allow death to separate them. The world fills your head with lies, Emily. There’s not such thing as love, money, soulmates and all of that other pointless stuff. It’s an illusion, a trick of the mind.
You make a good point. But love is not an illusion or a trick of the mind. Love is something you feel on a daily basis, whether that be towards a partner, a family member, a pet, anyone you care about. Caring is a form of love. Caring shows that you love them enough to be there for them, to support them. I’m pretty sure if you feel something as powerful as love then it’s not just an illusion. Love’s a beautiful thing, without love then there’s no point. The world would just be shit.
