There is a time and place for everything. You cannot change someone’s feelings, and you cannot ‘make it work’, when it has already been broken and the other person is not fighting for love. It takes two to Tango…
Someone who does not want to be commitment to themselves, will never be able to commit to you.
During your bumpy and thorny road of your past relationships and affairs, you learned who you are, what you need in order shine, radiate positive energy, bloom, blossom and stay strong in a world, that has so many challenges.
You learned about your personality and your ego-aspects. You learned how to be a strong person, and how to make a future partner a powerful and strong person by the vibration you are able to send. That is how you love in a way that makes the other person stronger, not weaker.
Now, you have 2 choices to make: a life partner, or soul mate (if you’re lucky you will find both in one). Whatever you choose, and are willing to fight for, first you must know the ups and downs in your next love-life chapter.
There are 5 major ways to know if your lover is your soul mate or your partner for life:
1. Guiding vs. Support
Anyone can be your soul mate – your friend, relative, a colleague from work or even a total stranger you encounter. Soul mates enter your life to guide you. They teach you life altering lessons and once they’ve achieved that, their purpose in your life is over.
As is clear from the term, life partners are for life. They support you throughout and share similar interests. They stick to you through thick and thin and continue giving you positivity.
2. Different Levels Of Spiritual Connection
You may have the best tuning with your partner, but in the case of a soul mate, your relationship won’t be permanent. Very often, ego and misunderstandings escalate to a point of heart break.
In case of a life partner, this connection is much deeper. It remains more consistent and lasts your whole life. It is because you both share similar emotions and understanding which results in a superior tuning.
3. Time framed or timeless
It is usual to feel an instant connection when one meets their soul mate. You both feel as if you’ve known each other for ages. You feel what the other person feels. But usually such instant bonds are very destructive. Eventually it ends in a painful manner.
Life partners on the other hand are quite stable. They may not click immediately but they’re much more empathetic. They are calm and spend more time understanding you at every level. They create a safe circle around you and provide the calm security free from hectic emotions.
4. Whimsical Emotions vs. Spiritual Stability
Soul mates have indescribable connection. You feel attracted to them like magnets do to nails. It is because you both share common feelings and habits which makes it all the more magical. You don’t need words to understand each other.
Life partners are more about learning and lasting. They want to spend a long time with you, so that they can share their experiences and wisdom with you. They not only have an emotional understanding with you, but also an intellectual one. They appeal to your senses in every form which makes them much rarer than a soul mate.
5. Life experiences of a moment or long term
No wonder soul mates are wonderful, but they come with a lot of difficulties. It is almost impossible to make it last forever, even with a lot of efforts.
Life partners enter your life to remain in it. With time, that connection only gets better and deeper. Time or distance only makes it stronger. Such relationships are extremely uplifting. It never fails to cheer you up. You feel a sense of tranquility and safety in such relationships.
We can thus see that there is a lot of difference between a soul mate and a life partner. But this doesn’t mean that your life partner can’t be your soul mate or your soul mate can’t be your life partner. What is important is to know the difference so that you can make an effective choice.
