I saw the attached media and had to comment that that one thing I disagree with is that finding a soulmate only takes a second. You will never know in a second that someone might be your soulmate. Most of us don’t look for soulmates, and if we are looking for such, probably won’t find them. It happens when you least expect it and it takes time. Your mind and heart have to be open and you can’t be desperate for it or blocking it with pre-conceived notions.
Our lives often prevent us from seeing that potential soulmate right in front of us. It is not about sex, lust, passion, money, looks, possessions, ambition, age, station in life, education, or a host of other things. It is about intimacy and a sharing of life’s triumphs and disappointments.
Don’t get me wrong. Sex is great. There are people, however, for whom such a relationship is not possible, for many reasons, whether it be physical, mental, distance, gender, other relationships, or a myriad of life circumstances.
Sadly many people never find a soulmate. Luckily for some, they find more than one in a lifetime…..sometimes at the same time. Yes, you can have more than one soulmate. It is insane to think that you can provide all that is needed for someone else and that same person can provide all that you need. You can come close, but it is not healthy to depend upon or the other person to be totally dependent upon you. True soulmates bring happiness, humor, and outside interests to the other, was well as the common bonds. They are devoted to one another, but know that that both they and the other need more in life than just one person.
I’m lucky. I met my first soulmate shortly before I turned 18 and we are still together. We would not be if we stifled each other.
