When you hear the word ‘soulmate’ you probably think of the love of your life. But there are other types of soulmates. A soulmate doesn’t have to be romantic in nature. It could be a sibling or even a best friend. If you’re lucky, a soulmate comes around more than just once over the course of your life. Having a soul-level connection with someone is personal, unique and should never be taken for granted.
Here are four signs you have made soul-level connection with someone in your life:
1. You’re In It For The Long Haul
You may have developed a soul-level connection if you cannot imagine living the rest of your life without this person. If they are absent from your life, you feel like a part of you is missing. You’re able to celebrate each other’s successes and comfort each other in times of need. You support each other’s dreams and you are incredibly happy navigating through life with this person by your side.
2. You Become More Patient And Understanding
Your pet peeves seem to disappear when you’ve found your soulmate. Things that might irritate you in other people don’t bother you as much when they come from this person. Instead of being quick to anger, you’ve become more understanding and you’re able to forgive more easily. You’re able to see your soulmate’s heart and accept them for who they are. You might be able to extend your new-found patience and understanding to others in your life as well.
3. Your Relationship Is Very Physical
If you’ve found your romantic soulmate, you might not be able to keep your hands off of each other. Your attraction is so strong that you want to constantly be near them. If you’ve found your soulmate in a family member or friend, this can manifest as frequent hugs, hand-holding or cuddling. Whatever type of relationship it is, the physical aspect is there because the two of you are so close that it can even be seen physically.
4. You Feel Compelled To Give Them Your Full Attention
You might find yourself half-listening to friends or co-workers while playing on your phone during a conversation. This is never the case during an interaction with your soulmate. You feel the need to give them your undivided attention, because you truly care about what they have to say. You feel what they feel and you want nothing more than to be present with them. This honest communication allows your relationship to flourish and grow even stronger.
