The 6 Ways In Which Soulmates Nourish Your Soul
Soulmates are about much more than simple instant gratification. They are here to help you in your personal growth and nourish you. All of them will have these 6 signs in common and if you can’t relate these to your partner, then sadly, it implies that they are not really the one to be called soulmates.
1. Giving You Validation For Your Feelings Even If You Don’t Ask For It
They pay attention to how you feel and react accordingly. They’ll be jubilant when you have achieved something in your workplace and will be equally outraged when life hasn’t been fair to you. They will not belittle or negate your experiences or anguish and will give each thing as much attention as you would have.
If instead your partner is someone who constantly makes fun of your emotions or feelings, someone who constantly says that you are making a big deal out of nothing, you better look for the next exit. If they constantly make you feel like you have to apologize for everything you do and feel, then they are definitely not nurturing and helping you grow. Constantly belittling you and making you feel inferior is not the sign of a soulmate; much less a good one. Do not let such people have any control or say in your life.
2. Giving You Priority Over Other Things
All of us are busy with our own trials and tribulations. And everyone has their plates full to the brim. But, we make time for the things that matter to us and have no doubt about it, if they treasure you, they’ll make you a priority. Meetings and appointments aside, there is no reason why any of the partner should feel like the second fiddle in a relationship.
If your partner cannot seem to be able to find time for you that means that they do not value you enough to do so. Do not spend your time and energy on someone who wouldn’t even give you the time of the day. Remember that you are not a toy, to be brought out according to convenience. You should be made a priority by your partner because that is what you deserve.
3. Helping You To Grow And Evolve
The only people worth having around are those who support you and encourage you to always achieve more than what you thought possible. They are the ones who are rooting for you to succeed and are also there to comfort you when you don’t. This applies to the soulmate as well. A true soulmate is one who helps you realize your hidden potential. They encourage you to look deep within yourself and sometimes recognize talent which you didn’t know about yourself.
Day in and day out they encourage you to be better than who you were yesterday. If they are not encouraging your growth or helping you realize your hidden potential, then they are not your soulmates. A soulmate will never let you be the mundane, making by with whatever is the bare minimum. They want you to excel in every way and they will make sure that you do. They will be critical of you when you lag behind and give you a hand when you need it, but they will make sure that you reach the top.
4. Giving You Your Own Space
All of us need our own space and not all the partners are comfortable with it and/or realize its importance. Although you might be a couple but you are still individuals who have their individual likes, dislikes, hobbies and social circle. Neglecting all of that in the favor of each other’s company, all day everyday is neither healthy nor will it do anything to make the two of you grow fonder of each other.
The two partners have to be mature enough to understand that everyone has a life of their own and trust each other to love it to the fullest without forgetting all about them. If both the partners can come to a consensus on how much space they need to grow and thrive as individuals, and then not begrudge each other for that, they will definitely not face any altercations or problems in life. Personal space is a necessity and not just a luxury; so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
5. Being Your Pillar Of Strength
A true soulmate will be the pillar of strength when you need them. They will know when to lift you up and when to hold you when you need it. They will help you survive the tough times and ride effortlessly over the easier ones. They will never demand more than what you can offer without harming yourself, be it your love or your time. They will never drain you completely.
They will always add to your strengths and not drag you down. And they will give you as much love as they demand. They will nourish and protect you and also give you the space to grow. If instead they only care about their own problems and constantly ask for attention regardless of your own complications, then they aren’t really your soulmate because if they were they wouldn’t have been this selfish.
6. Always Taking Equal Responsibility
They will never let you pull the cart alone. They will always be right there with you when it comes to sacrificing their own personal quirks for strengthening the relationship. Relationships don’t come easy. They take a lot of work and communication and sacrifices to build up to something significant.
And they do it without any qualms because they know you are doing your best as well. They will not expect you to shoulder the entire burden by yourself. If they only expect you to do the dirty work, and complain when things are not all sunshine and rainbows then they are not your soulmate. You are partners and partners are in for the equal haul not just the bright parts.
