A romantic soulmate is the one
person that you are meant to live happily
ever after with, right? Once you meet them, everything
will fall into place and
life will be wonderful,
Well - yes, and no. Let's take a look at
some of the myths about romantic soulmates.
We each have only one
romantic soulmate during our lifetime.
True for some, not for others. Some people
have one soulmate who they'll be with for most of their life. However,
many of us have several romantic soulmates during a lifetime, at different
times in our lives - each exactly who and what we need at that particular
time. For instance, we may have a deep, meaningful relationship with
one romantic soulmate, that relationship ends for whatever reason, and
later we may meet another of our soulmates. Most people don't know exactly
how many romantic soulmates they will have, or when they will show up.
always live happily ever after.
Sometimes this is the case. Very often,
though, soulmates will live "ever after" - with happiness,
but also with some challenges. The challenges are what urge them to
learn and grow, and often end up helping them love each other more deeply.
Soulmates always end
up together for the long-term.
Sometimes romantic soulmates live "happily"
but not "ever after" - meaning that soulmate relationships
are sometimes meant to last long-term, and sometimes for a shorter time.
A soulmate can be lost to illness, for
instance. In some cases, a romantic soulmate relationship runs its course
and it naturally ends after its purpose has been accomplished. Occasionally,
a romantic soulmate will decide that the relationship is not worth the
challenges it presents.
There is nothing that guarantees that a
romantic soulmate relationship will be "all happiness" or
will last a long time. Remember, though that in romantic soulmate relationships
everything happens for a purpose - providing opportunities not only
for love, but also for learning and growth.
I'll recognize my romantic soulmate immediately when I meet them.
Occasionally this happens, where one or
both soulmates recognize their soulmate right away. But not always.
Sometimes a person is expecting a certain
"type" of person as their soulmate, and they don't recognize
them when they show up. In some cases, they can't get past this expectation
and they miss connecting with their soulmate altogether.
In some cases, it takes a while to discover
that romantic soulmate connection - especially when the relationship
starts out in another context such as "friends" or "co-workers."
Once I'm with my romantic
soulmate, everything will fall into place and life will be great.
Many aspect of life may be better, and
you may be happier overall - but you will still have most of the same
challenges in your life. You will still be running the same patterns
you were before. Still have the same subconscious beliefs or tendencies
for self-sabotage, for example. If the personal challenges were there
before, they will very likely still be there after.
