Does your soul mate have to be your life-long partner, or can they be a fabulous friend without the complication of sex or intimacy?
Trust is paramount in any relationship and whilst you may love someone very much, you might not be able to trust them with everything. You might feel that you have to keep secrets from them. If you find a soulmate you will be able to tell them anything. All your hopes, dreams, and even your deepest secrets should be safe with your soulmate. But, although that would be nice, it doesn’t have to be the person you spend your life with.
So what’s a soul mate for me? It’s a person with whom I have an immediate connection the moment we communicate. A connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. My soulmate understands and connects with me in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when I am in touch. And when I am not around them, I am all the more aware of the harshness of life and how bonding with them is a really important part of my life. It is an affinity which you can’t explain but never take for granted. A soul mate makes you more aware of the beauty in life and because I have been given a great gift I will always be thankful.
You have given me much to think about Caroline. That is a fascinating thought. I believe I understand and had the benefit of such a friend most of my life. When he passed away about ten years ago, a piece of me died. He still visits in my dreams occasionally.
He filled a place in my life long before I met my wife and was my best friend until he passed away. My wife will always be my best friend as well. But that is not the same as a soul mate.
Your words feel so right. I do not know where you found the inspiration for this post. But I thank you for writing it.
Hi-I’m pleased you like the post. As ever I write what I see and what I experience and this happened to be at the forefront of my mind yesterday.
Too many people think of a soulmate as having to be their life-long partner but it doesn’t have to be so. It’s lovely to have such a friend if you are lucky enough to find them.
