So for today’s tale I’d like you to consider the concept of “soul mate” – it could be yours or your character’s if you decide to write a fiction: it might be a partner, spouse or a friend.
What is a soulmate?
A soulmate can be a romantic partner or a friend or a sibling even. The connection is intangible but it’s very much there.
Someone who understands you without you telling them. Someone who will answer the question before you have asked it. Someone who will say what you were going to say at that exact moment.
I don’t think romance has much to do with this connection. We gravitate instinctively towards people with whom we feel this connection. People who share similar values and views. They become our best friends whatever relationship we have with them.
I say similar, not exactly the same. Luckily, I’ve had many such connections. My younger brother was one! I say was as he had lived in America for last 33-34 years and we’ve grown apart. But when we were growing up, we were so much in sync that it was amazing.
I’ve had a few childhood friends who are also on the same wavelength as me. That’s why that we have been friends since our school days. Almost 50 years.
With my husband, I have a yin-yang relationship. We compliment each other. On the important issues of life, we think similarly but on other things, we are wildly different. But we work together as a team.
