First, we need to be able to establish what exactly a soulmate is. A soulmate is a person with whom you can just be your true and genuine self. A soulmate is someone you can just completely bare your entire essence to without any filters. You might not even be mirror images of one another. You might not exactly be the same kinds of people. But you’re going to be exactly what you need for one another in that exact point in time of your meeting.
We’re all probably familiar with the idea of soulmates at this point. In the age of mainstream media, you’ve probably been exposed to so many different concepts and ideas surrounding love and relationships. So, you probably might already have an image in your head of what a soulmate is supposed to look like. Bu then, are you correct in your assessment? Are you fair in your expectations?
Well, it’s probably a different case for each and every one of us. However, I would like to share my experience with my soulmate; and how that love was able to change my life and my perspective on it.
When I was younger, I always imagined my soulmate would be the person I would meet for the first time and instantly know that we would be spending the rest of our lives together. This was what I believed because it was what I used to read about in books. It’s what I saw in the movies. It’s what I heard in the music that I used to listen to. And so I made it a point to find my soulmate as a means to further my pursuit of true love. When I was younger, I had a fresher and more optimistic heart. I was more open to so many fantastical ideas. And I was so impatient. I was very hard-headed. I was very stubborn. I was set on what love was supposed to be like, and I didn’t want to settle for anything less. I desperately wanted to experience that love that I was dreaming of.
It took me a little while to realize that the kind of love that I was looking for was so readily available. I didn’t realize that the love that I wanted was all around me. The kind of love that gives a person joy, fulfillment, meaning, and contentment; that kind of love comes from within. And that’s something I’ve only learned over the years through experience. It’s so easy to revive love in our lives once we lose it from someone else. Sometimes, it can be hidden and it’s going to take a little time to bring it up to the surface. Sometimes, it’s going to take meeting the right person or finding the right hobby to make manifest that love that is within our souls.
We always want to be recognizing remnants of ourselves in other people. That’s what it means to really connect with someone. That’s what it means to establish an intimate bond with another human being. That’s what meeting my soulmate exactly did for me. It was my soulmate who made me recognize my own personality in them. And it was the love I had for that person where I really felt a sense of contentment and warmth in my soul. We were strongly connected to one another. The bond was something that I knew was special. This was the kind of connection I knew that I wouldn’t be able to emulate with just anyone. I knew that what I had in front of me was something that was worth preserving; something that was worth holding on to.
But then, over time, I also realized that soulmates don’t always have to play permanent roles in your life. I understood that sometimes, a soulmate doesn’t necessarily have to be the romantic relationship partner that you have for the rest of your days. Sometimes, a soulmate will walk out of your life as easily as they walked into it.
And that’s what makes a soulmate kind of love different from any other kind of love. It’s a very strong and powerful one. It’s definitely a very special one that is always worth giving time and attention to. However, it isn’t always going o be permanent. The thing about having a soulmate is that you only ever really get your soulmate at the proper time. And when that time is up, you’re going to have to learn to say goodbye and detach yourself from that situation. Because that’s just the nature of soulmates. They enter your life at a time when you need them to. And once you’ve learned everything that you can from your soulmate, it’s time for you to part ways and lives your separate lives.
