Falling in love is a beautiful experience. Your stomach is full of butterflies, your head is spinning, and every day is a new adventure. There comes a time when you start to wonder whether the person you are with is just a fun phase or a potential future. A soulmate is somebody who you have a profound connection with that is based on more than just feelings. It is based on understanding, love, and kindness. Your soulmate knows who you are and chooses to see you as who you can be.
Sometimes, it can be hard to know whether you have found your soulmate, so here are 10 signs that you have found the one.
1. They are your best friend
Your soulmate is truly your best friend. You can laugh and cry with them without ever feeling judged. You love spending time together and are always there for each other. I genuinely believe that every healthy relationship is founded on a deeply-connected friendship. Just like you should work on your romantic relationship, you should also work on your friendship!
2. They genuinely care about you
Do they take care of you when you’re sick? Are they there to help you when you are having car troubles or just a bad day? Your soulmate genuinely cares about you and your well-being. They never put you in dangerous situations or make you feel unsafe. They also care about your feelings and go out of their way to show you that. Caring comes in lots of ways, such as surprising with a coffee on your bad day or simply asking you about your day.
3. They help you become a better individual
Your soulmate also recognizes that you are your own person and help you become your best self. They help you get motivated and support you through all the crazy things life may throw at you. They’re also not afraid to have a difficult conversation with you to help you become better. How do you feel about yourself when you are with your partner? Your partner should always help you build yourself. Relationships are all about growing together and separately!
Your partner should help you strive to become the better you, and if they are not doing that, then chances are that person is not meant for you. Surround yourself with those who want to help you grow!
4. You look forward to sharing with them your wins and losses
Whether you had the best day ever or the worst one yet, you want to share that news with your soulmate first. After all, your soulmate is the person who understands you like no other and who you can find comfort and support in. If you are continually sharing your accomplishments and losses with your partner, it means that you feel safe celebrating and finding comfort in them at the same time.
5. They make you laugh like no other
Happiness is laughter. Being able to laugh through life with your partner is so important! Life can be difficult, messy, unfair, and even painful, which is why it is so important to find that someone who you can laugh with. Though serious moments are just as important, nothing can beat a laugh therapy with your soulmate. After all, life is too short to be taken too seriously.
6. They listen to you
We all want to be heard and understood. Your soulmate knows that your feelings, thoughts, and ideas are important; therefore, they always make sure to listen when you are trying to communicate with them. Remember that being a good listener is a two-way street, and you should also listen to your partner when they are trying to communicate with you.
7. They respect you even when arguing
Sometimes arguments, disagreements, and misunderstandings are unavoidable. Every couple argues once in a while; however, you should always do it respectfully. Your soulmate would never degrade, intentionally hurt, or disrespect you when you two are arguing. Your soulmate wants a resolution with compromise and understanding. They never want to hurt you and get “even.” If your partner ever makes you feel unsafe or degraded when having an argument or a simple disagreement, then that person is not for you. One of my best friends since said, “I want to have the kind of people in my life who I can argue with without destroying our friendship/relationship.” We should all strive to be that kind of people!
8. They are gentle with you
Your soulmate is always gentle with you and your feelings. They are patient when you make mistakes and understand that you are trying your best. They are always compassionate and kind, even when having difficult conversations.
9. They always choose you
Life can be very unpredictable, and sometimes we have to choose. Whether it is long distance or any other obstacles that come your way, your soulmate is always going to choose you at the end. Choosing somebody doesn’t always mean that you choose them over your career or other opportunities. Choosing somebody no matter what means that you are willing to face hardships together rather than apart, which is precisely what your soulmate is going to do. Though we are all human and can have our doubts, your soulmate is always going to choose you at the end of the day despite their fears.
10. They love you unconditionally
Unconditional love doesn’t have limits. It always hopes for the best, chooses kindness and gentleness. It always gives, fights for the future, and supports. Your soulmate is going to love you unconditionally despite any obstacles, against all the odds.
Your soulmate is somebody who you see your future with. Your soulmate is your best friend who you choose to fight for always. Your soulmate is somebody who you can have fun at a grocery with. It is somebody who you want to wake up to every morning and make dinners with. Your soulmate simply understands your heart and holds it tightly and gently.
