I believe in soulmates! <3
1. They willingly give you validation for how you feel and who you are even when you don’t tell them to.
Your soulmate is really going to pay attention to how you feel during any given moment. They are never going to do or say anything that will make you want to hold back from expressing yourself. They would never just dismiss what you think or how you feel as something that’s insignificant. They will always make you feel validated for who you are. They would never belittle or demean you as a person or your feelings either. They will make sure that you know that you always have a safe space for expression in the relationship because they would never judge you or dismiss you; they would never hold anything that you might say against you.
They would never make fun of you or make you feel like less of a person than you actually are. They will always make sure to cultivate a safe space for you in the relationship to convey whatever it is you might need to convey.
2. They prioritize you and your relationship above other aspects of life.
Of course, just because we get into relationships doesn’t mean that we have to drop all other aspects of life. When we get into a relationship, we have to make sure that we still maintain our individual lives outside of the relationship. However, your true soulmate would always know when to prioritize you and your relationship. It’s all about balance and time management. But your true soulmate wouldn’t have a problem with dropping everything else if it meant saving your relationship. At the end of the day, when it all comes down to it, they’re going to choose you.
So you won’t ever have to feel insecure about your place in your soulmate’s life. You won’t ever have to wonder if they’re still going to be there for you even when other things in their life demand their attention. You know that they’re really in it for you.
3. They respect whatever boundaries you set for them in your relationship.
All of us as human beings are always going to crave for our space and our independence to some degree. And that carries over even when we get into relationships with people. It might seem counterintuitive to crave for solitude and isolation even when you’re in a relationship, but that’s something that the best and most successful couples are able to grasp. You know that your partner is your soulmate whenever they don’t feel entitled to having you in their lives. They respect that you are your own human being who is capable of making your own decisions about what you want to do with your time. They would honor whatever boundaries you might set for them in the relationship. They would never pressure you into doing things that you don’t want to do. They would never deliberately place you in positions of discomfort.
You have a soulmate who loves you enough to let you be who you are in spite of the relationship. As much as they want to be with you all the time, they still respect the fact that you are entitled to your own time.
4. They serve sour strength whenever you start to feel weak.
If your partner is truly your soulmate, then they would always be your rock in life. They would always serve as the foundation from which you can draw your strength. Your partner should be your safety net whenever you fall or stumble. They should serve as your last lines of defense whenever you start to feel weak and vulnerable; whenever you feel like you can’t take it any longer.
Your soulmate isn’t going to baby you or coddle you. They are going to push and motivate you. They are going to give you the confidence that you need to pursue success in life. They won’t allow you to give up on yourself because they’re never going to give up on you.
5. They really live up to being your partner for life.
They’re fully in this thing with you. They’re not going to leave you alone. They’re not going to have you doing a bulk of the work. They will be right there beside you helping you along the way. That’s what it means to be in a great romantic relationship. It’s a genuine partnership where no one gets left behind. It’s two people who are constantly helping and pushing each other forward. The best kinds of relationships aren’t the ones that don’t have problems. The best relationships are those that look problems in the face and say that they’re going to solve them together.
Your soulmate is always going to help make you feel like you have a genuine teammate in life. It’s the two of you against the world as they say.
