“You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.”
I love this more than I can express. I think this can be such an empowering message. Not only for individuals who are religious, but also for young girls like me. Young girls can sometimes be very critical of their bodies. I think this quote sums up that your body is temporary, while your soul and who are will last beyond this Earth’s existence. The message that I’ve heard for years about “it’s who you are on the inside that matters,” finally makes sense. I also really appreciate how in this quote; soul is not capitalized in the first sentence, making it seem of less importance. However, in the second sentence Soul is capitalized just as our names are, metaphorically stating that the Soul is who we are. I really cannot thank whoever founded this quote enough. It has really made me think differently about who I am and how I see myself. I hope that it’s done the same for the individual reading this blog post.
