Soul mates are a near mythical concept- people can search for them for their whole lives and be unsuccessful, and others seemingly find their perfect match only to realize later that they were wrong about that person. In ancient Greece, it was believed that in the beginning people were four armed, four legged, and had two sets of eyes, mouths, and noses. These beings frightened the gods so much that they split these first human beings into two parts, leaving them disorientated and searching hopelessly for their other half. This myth symbolizes how hard it is to find your soul mate, but also gives people hope, because everyone has another part of himself or herself somewhere in the world just waiting to be discovered.
