THE POWER OF READING BETWEEN THE LINES
I sat up reading Plato's Symposium as you requested, and I agree that everyone has a twin soul they rarely remember. I also was able to find things within his book that also supports my own theory that you can be in love with someone and still mentally you belong to someone else. Next you'll read some passages from his book pages 176-185:
"Whether playing the flute as a great master or as a miserable flute player, you have a power which no other have that alone possess the soul and reveals the want of those who have needs. You produce this effect with your words only and do not require a musical flute, and that is the difference between you and him.
For he makes me confess that I ought not live as I do neglecting the wants of my own soul. Therefore, I hold my ears and try to tear myself away from him, and he is the only person whoever made me feel ashamed—which may not be my nature, and there is no one else who does the same. For I know that I cannot answer him or say that I ought not do as he bids. But when I leave his presence the love of popularity gets the better of me, and therefore I run away and fly from him, and when I see him, I am ashamed of what I have confessed to him.
When he is opened what temperance there is residing within. When I opened him and looked within at his serious purpose, I saw in him divine and golden images of such fascinating beauty that I was ready to do in a moment whatever he commanded. Now I fancied that he was seriously enamored of my beauty, and I thought that I should therefore have a grand opportunity of hearing him tell me what he knew.
You have indeed elevated aim, if what you say is true. And if there really is in me any power by which you may become better, truly you must see in me some rare beauty. Therefore if you mean to share with me and to exchange beauty, you will have greatly the advantage of me, and you will gain true beauty in return for appearances."
So, in response, I say what I took from this was that no matter if he does the right things for you as a man should, if he doesn't give you that affection you need, someone else will. Because even if his gestures may show his love, the words he say will forever be burnt inside your mind whenever you think of him. By him not doing so, you've begun to seek that knowledge from someone else who has gained entry into your heart because of this.
I say that if it seems as if you want to open up yet you feel it'll be a betrayal to him by doing so, ask yourself: if he seems too good to be true, is it a sign that maybe he can't give you everything you need? Truly, twin souls you've found. Yet the final question is—can you trust yourself around your equal?
REAL TALK ALWAYS.
