What is a soul-mate?
I really don’t believe that there is just one person with whom you can fall in love. There are a number of people in the world with whom you can connect and if you are lucky, you will connect with the one who is right for you.
Many a people have fallen in love with the wrong person and have endured it because they thought they were soul- mates.
I think we fall in love or are attracted to a person initially due to their physical attributes. And with time and understanding, we develop a close and stronger bond, that of true affection.
A good partner is the one who compliments your personality. Two people in a successful relationship are never exactly same. They are in fact quite different to each other and that’s why they have a good relationship. They fit together well because they are different. In real life we seldom see love at first sight, or fairytale style, happily ever after. What we see are relationships forged with effort and determination to make them work.
It would be so much better for us all if we could come out of the story book style romances and look at life realistically.
Do you have reoccurring dreams about a particular person (known or unknown)? When you think about what you are looking for in a life partner does a particular image come to mind? What characteristics are you looking for in said partner? Have you ever encountered someone and felt an instantaneous and inexplicable bond with that person reciprocated or not? What does soul mate mean to you? Do you just know where someone is/what they are doing/feeling intuitively? Have you ever felt the presence of someone who wasn’t physically in the room?
