Soulmate vs. Life Partner
“I believe all interactions we have with people serve a purpose. Regardless if they’ve stayed for a short period of time or re-entered our lives after a long period of time.”
A couple weeks ago I was having a conversation with a friend about life partners and soulmates. We were discussing the differences and similarities between the two, and wondered who we’ve encountered in our lives fits which title best. I am all about connections and vibes with people and believe I’ve had/have a few soulmates. They are friends, exes, and even strangers I’ve randomly met at a point in my life. Some of the frequencies I have with people are inexplicable and definitely mind-blowing. Being able to connect with someone spiritually is amazing. But, being able to connect with someone spiritually, intellectually AND emotionally is a whole ‘nother level. This is said to be the connection you get with a life partner. You explore new things with this person and learn from one another and it feels invigorating.
Last week this topic was brought up by a co-worker and friend while we were having lunch, and I told her it was crazy because I just spoke about this not long ago. She sent me an article that she recently read titled “The 5 Most Significant Differences between a Soulmate and a Life Partner.” After reading, it put a few things I already thought about into perspective, more. I started re-evaluating current and past relationships/friendships I’ve had, just to figure out what I gained or didn’t gain from that person. Did our relationship carry any value at all? Am I or Did I serve my purpose in their life? And vice versa? What did I connect with this person most on? What lessons have I learned?
I believe all interactions we have with people serve a purpose. Regardless if they’ve stayed for a short period of time or re-entered our lives after a long period of time, there’s a reason for it all. Can there be people in our lives who aren’t necessarily soulmates and life partners? Well, duh. Absolutely. The people who are in our lives who we may not have a connection with are just [social] associates, colleagues and even family. Just because you’re related to someone doesn’t mean you necessarily have a connection with them. I’m specifically addressing those who have presented special energies in our lives and how we’ve managed those relationships.
I’ve included the link below to the article my friend sent me, along with another article I found interesting on the same topic. Share your thoughts, ideas and disagreements if you have them.
