Guys, we made it to February! Firstly, kudos to us after possibly the longest, oddest January on record (can I just say, no one wants to live through anymore ‘historic’ awful events, thank you very much 2021). We’re now, hopefully, onto somewhat greener pastures. Look, we know that February is all about Valentine’s Day for a lot of people, this year will definitely be slight different, if you do celebrate it. Anyway, with love and romance (kind of) in the air, we thought we’d tackle a big topic. Soulmates. Now, some people believe that we all have one soulmate, some (me, I am part of some) think it’s likely we have several. There are those that believe soulmates have to be romantic and others who feel that a soulmate can be anyone with whom you have a natural, mutual understanding and liking of. I personally love the idea of that. Question is, how do you know if you’ve met such a person? Here are 5 signs you’ve truly found your soulmate…
We’ve all likely had times in our life where you just know something with absolute certainty. Whether it’s that you were meant to be somewhere, or meet someone. There are many couples who will tell you that they just knew that their partner was their soulmate. Maybe it was based on a big event like they saved their life, or a smaller one like anticipating a need they had and being prepared for it. If you’ve seen The Good Place (highly recommend it, what else are you going to do with your time right now other than binge watch shows) one of the couples find that they’re soulmates when one of the partners is about to sneeze and the other is already handing them a tissue. Sometimes, your gut just knows stuff, what can we say!
Many people who have met their soulmate, have
found that something about them made them fearless,
in the sense that they never thought about not being
their true selves around them.
You know how you can be seeing/dating someone and you’re constantly on edge. Whether it’s wondering if the date you just had will be the last before they ghost you or just feeling like you can’t trust them. I’m sure we can all relate on some level. Well, with your soulmate, these feelings will likely not come into play. Some people have even felt that from the beginning, something about their now soulmate made them feel at peace and not nervous at all. What a dream!

When you’re dating/seeing someone, especially in the early days, it can feel like you have to ‘edit’ yourself. You get a lot of people who feel like they can’t truly be themselves because they think the other person can’t possibly be ready for all that. What if they get scared and run away? Many people who have met their soulmate, have found that something about them made them fearless, in the sense that they never thought about not being their true selves around them. When they’re together, they don’t worry about their partner seeing their ‘bad’ side or fear that they might say the wrong thing because they both have that deeper understanding of each other.
As much as they’re a couple, they’re still independent
entities and they allow room for that, making
Now, by external threats, I mean things like being worried that if your partner exerts their independence by still wanting to do things alone from time to time or having non-mutual friends. One of the things that soulmates have is that bond that isn’t shaken by such things. They don’t see their partner having other things in their life that don’t involve the two of them as ‘competition’. As much as they’re a couple, they’re still independent entities and they allow room for that, making them stronger.
I know this is going to sound very rom-com, meet cute (bear with me here!) but a lot of people who have met their soulmates say that there was a clear before and after. As in what life was like before they met their soulmate and what it was like after. That is not to say that they were all miserable and alone before they met their person, it’s just that there was a marked difference. Something about this person now being in their life just changed it somehow.
So, there you have it! 5 signs you’ve truly found your soulmate. Remember, there are many forms that a soulmate can come in and as much as it’s about unconditional love, it’s also about acceptance, seeing value in each other and raising each other up!
