In our life time, we meet many people and make many new relations and often end up mixing up the relations. Two of such most common are ‘Soul mate’ and ‘Life partner’. Though they may seem to hold the same meaning, they are totally different.
Soul mate is someone that is connected at a deep level, they come in your life to stir your soul, awaken the consciousness and transcend to a higher level. They come in our lives when we are ready and not anytime sooner. Their arrival depends on when we are ready to manifest the lessons that we are destined to fulfill.
Soul mates relationships are not forever, once the lessons have been learned, physical separation usually occur. Soul mates can be a family member, a friend or any of the relatives and not necessarily a romantic partner.
Life partner is someone who you walks with hand in hand, a stable and secure individual who you can lean on, put your faith and trust in and depend on through the journey of life. They grow and learn with you, there is a mutual feeling of love and respect and you both are in sync with each other’s needs and wants.
The differences between soul mate and a life partner
A brief colorful moment Vs A bliss for life time
Love with a soul mate is a moment of bliss at dawn with sky colored in Aurora and fireworks delighting your eyes, but soon you realize that fireworks left burns on you. A long lasting love with a soul mate is almost impossible as there will come many obstacles. It requires a lot of hard work and efforts to make it work and still, the chances of success are very low.
Whereas life partners are like the dusk of spring morning accompanied by fresh breeze that sends a signal of happiness through your spines. Lie partners are there in your life to lift you up and make you happy, they are there to stay. Each the love and connection deepen, and each day you feel more loved, happier and safe. They are not fireworks but warmth in your heart. A happiness that matters, a happiness that lasts.
Instant connects Vs taking its time.
Upon arrival of your soul mate, you will feel a connection between you two instantly; it’s a feeling as if you have known each other since years. The chemistry and understanding is so good that you will feel like ‘yes! He/she is the one’. But relationships with soul mates are full of struggles and chaos. By the time your relationship had walked some distance you both will be unhappy and end up in a destructive way.
Life partners take their time, they uncover your insecurities, fears, likes, dislikes one by one and know about you. They connect with you slowly and try to understand everything about you. They are calm and the relationship with them is calmer and safer. You feel more relaxed and let things unfold itself. You have a sense of safety and reliability which you cannot find in a relationship with a soul mate.
Guiding you Vs walking with you
Soul mates are not necessarily your lovers, they can be a member of the family, a friend or anyone. They come in your life to guide you, to show you the correct path. They teach you lessons that are most necessary to learn at that point of time and once the lessons have been imparted they disappear from your life.
Life partner is there to walk hands in hand with you. They are there to support you throughout the life. They will stick around through all ups and downs. They will push you to excel and do well in life and they will always be around rooting for you and lifting you up.
Fancy connection Vs stable one
The connection you feel with your soul mate is beyond words can describe. You feel as if this was meant to happen, you feel a deep connection at an emotional level, you share similar thought process. Soul mates are there to guide you and teach you and they make you feel a certain way.
