As an introvert who already works from home, not going anywhere for weeks at a time because of self isolation can get old.

A Twin Soul relationship is a mirror of discovery. It gives us insight into ourselves, into our wounds, into our dreams and hopes. It can show us where we are settling or not honoring our truth.

I didn't go to Las Vegas to gamble or drink, as I don't do either of those things.Tell someone that on an airplane bound for Las Vegas and you get some odd looks.
