Woman learns brutal lesson after abandoning family of 14 years for her new “soulmate”

When it comes to giving life lessons, we always look for those who have won in life and overcame their challenges. But, this is not always the case.

One Australian woman has come out with her book entitled “When A Soulmate Says No”.

It is a memoir of her own life wherein she shared how she left her husband of 14 years for a man she considered her “soul mate”. Now, before you get the wrong idea, the man she chose over her husband did not actually return her affections – which led her to the life-changing decision of leaving her husband and children behind.

The truth is, this woman has shared about this guy she named “Jason” who triggered something in her one night, at a party she attended. She did not go to that party to meet him, nor did she attend the party as his date.

Jason never really hit on her.

In her book, Amanda shared how she fell head over heels in love with Jason at that dinner party.

“I knew in my heart, in my soul, in the very fabric of my being that I had profoundly changed,” said Amanda, describing her fleeting experience with her “soul mate.”

In her written words, Amanda said:

“The connectedness I experienced with Jason was at a level impossible to describe…All I knew for certain was that this one encounter, in the most unlikely of places, under the most unusual of circumstances, had dramatically altered my life.”

A detailed description of her intoxication by Jason’s presence that night was written in her memoir, giving everyone a glimpse of the extreme attraction she felt for the man at that moment.

In her account, she also wrote that the evening ended wherein she and Jason hugged and Amanda whispered in his ear that “This isn’t over, I need to see you again.”

Clearly, Amanda is the one who was smitten with Jason.

There is no indication yet that Jason reciprocated her intense feelings, but after almost a month of their encounter, Amanda decided to end her 14-year marriage because she has found her “soul mate”. This was despite the fact that she and Jason had never communicated after the night they met. Oops.

“The woman who had always been so careful, so planned, so organized and so clear about the path her life would take, had just made the most dramatic decision of her life, one affecting those dearest to her — her family,” Amanda wrote.

Despite the book’s very detailed description of her feelings, Amanda ended her book with a cliffhanger. She never actually mentioned if Jason accepted or rejected her, but the title actually says it all!

Amanda launched her memoir online to receive a lot of attention, which it did, but not in a positive way.

People saw her memoir and reacted on social media about how she ended up being heartbroken after leaving a healthy marriage and her kids for some guy who probably did not care about her as much as she did. Some of the comments were quite brutal.

And what’s even more surprising is that the woman is now offering her services as a life coach, something that people online found even more bizarre.

Well, who are we to judge, right? We all have our ups and downs, and moments of glory and stupidity.

Whether Amanda did the right thing or not, let’s just hope she’s happy and that her family is on their way to recovering from their fallout.
