"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life." - Bob Marley

Poetry. You can't say something like that without actually experiencing those feelings. You can't make them up. Marley was real man and marijuana had to have that influence on him. When i'm high i have realizations of my feelings. I understand them and love becomes more strong. Weed REALLY does bring out all of the feelings inside you and makes you a complete person.

i just read this again and said "thats a little fruity" and then realized i was the one who wrote it and didn't remember. Marley said "weed reveals you to yourself"..so does that make me gay?

What sucks is when you think you've found this person and in the end, they just want to be friends.

Or when you find out they have feelings for you and/or you guys hook up. And end up " talk talking " then they date someone else.

Fucking hurts man .__.

What hurts the most I think is the damning never ending what ifs you find yourself thinking. What if this had been different, or what if I had said that and done that. Truly some BS my friend.

But does everybody find this person? Is it possible to never find your "soul mate" ? :/

Such a beautiful quote. I have someone like this in my life!

im almost postive bob marley didint say this or write this. the internet attributes many such quotes to famous people, to an extent, its falsification of media. have you heard a bob marley song or an interview before. the man spoke with a thick british jamaican accent, no where near as articulate as what you credited him with. this looks like something of tublur. it may be insightful, but i 'high'ly doubt mister marley spoke these words.
