Over time I’ve come to realise that a soul mate could be anyone, not just a love interest or partner, however, lets go along the romantic path of soul mate and check out what those connections are.
A soul mate is someone who has your best interests at heart and for the long haul not just for that heady early period when you first meet. They don’t have to have the same interests as you, but are happy and wiling to be part of what makes you happy to give you freedom to be yourself, to love you when you look good and when you don’t.
They are there for you during the storms and the sunshine, they value you but don’t put you on a pedestal, they feel equal and are not afraid to tell you if you over step the mark, but do so with love not judgement.
You are able to laugh together and cry together, you are able to show them the true you and not be afraid of rejection.
You want the best for each other and can talk through any problems. It’s not that it’s perfect but perfectly imperfect where you accept each others flaws, and can say sorry and mean it when things go wrong. You will feel trust and be able to communicate completely.
Look for these kind of qualities in a partner and don’t sell yourself short, you deserve the best.
