In our language we have the word ‘friend’, and the word ‘soul mate’ which is essentially romantic by nature. But how would you describe someone that falls in between? Someone who is more than just a ‘best friend’ but doesn’t have the romantic and sexual attraction of a ‘soul mate’? We need to create new words to express these relationships we have with others. Here are a few words that help to distinguish these deep connections we have in life: soul friend, soul teacher, soul companion, soul twin.

“A new poll last week revealed disturbing trends about the increasingly dire media coverage of the Ebola story in the United States. Measuring the rising anxiety among news consumers, a Rutgers-Eagleton poll of New Jersey residents found that 69 percent are at least somewhat concerned about the deadly disease spreading in the U.S. The truly strange finding was that people who said they were following the story most closely were the ones with the most inaccurate information about Ebola. The more information they consumed about the dangerous disease, the less they knew about it. How is that even possible? Poll director David Redlawsk cast an eye of blame on the news media. ‘The tone of the coverage seems to be increasing fear while not improving understanding,’ Redlawsk told a reporter. ‘You just have to turn on the TV to see the hysteria of the talking heads media. It’s really wall to wall. The crawls at the bottom of the screen are really about fear. And in all the fear and all the talking, there’s not a lot of information.'”
