Fleeting relationships can be here one day and gone the next, but there’s nothing quite like being intertwined with someone who leaves an everlasting imprint on your soul. Everyone wants to find “the one”. The one that will make them happy for the rest of their lives. Many people chase after it, but how can you tell which relationships will truly make a soulful impact in your life? And is there only ONE life mate for you out there?
Many people believe that we don’t choose our partners, and that destiny puts us together. Whether that’s true or not, it’s important to know if the person you’re in a relationship with truly has the potential to warm your heart forever. To gain a clearer vision when seeking “the one”, these 10 things should not go unnoticed:
6 Signs You’ve Found “The One”
1. They support your aspirations
Support from your significant other is vital, and the one who loves you forever should be able to provide this at all times, in all situations. They will help uplift you, stay aware of your emotions, and help pick you up when you’re feeling down.
Of all people, the one person who touches your soul will know your vulnerabilities, and much like the ancient art of Kintsugi, that person will help fill your cracks and make you stronger than ever before.
2. They spark passion in you
When someone inspires you to bring out your best self and create from your heart, there’s a good chance that they could be a soul mate. This person will not suppress or distract you from your inner desires, but rather act as a catalyst to help you propel into the life you’ve always dreamed of.
You and your soul mate have the potential to become the best versions of your own selves, giving way for growth that you’ve only imagined. They know the importance of seeing you fully live (not just exist) as your best self, and will take the positive steps necessary to help you see your passion come to life.
3. You communicate comfortably with them
You can be confident that you may have found the one when your words towards each other are kind and loving (more often than not). Of course, you’ll have your ups and downs, but if kind communication is consistent, you have a winning formula. You also know that you can tell your partner ANYTHING without being judged or criticized.
Likewise, you can be honest and expect understanding and love. If you feel like you cannot be open and honest, even during a moment of “human error”, that’s a sign of someone who may not match your energy.
4. They truly appreciate your affection
In the right relationship, it’s important to make all the non-physical connections such as comfortable communication, similar interests, etc., but there’s no denying the powerful energy produced when you physically connect with that special person. Just a single touch can send chills through your body. They want to give and receive these things on a consistent basis.
Your soul mate will NOT simply “get what they want and be done with you”, but rather enjoy every moment of passion with you – every step leading up to it and every step leading down from it.
5. They (always) think you’re irresistible
The person who makes you blush, no matter what time of day or day of the year, is surely a soul mate in the making. A soul mate type of relationship is one that looks past imperfections, messy hair, wrinkles, and little behaviors that may be considered “less than savory” by others.
Even when you don’t necessarily see your own radiance, your soul mate will. Your special someone doesn’t need to see you in your best dress to be enamored by your beauty.
6. They are trustworthy and loyal
With the negative temptations that life has to offer, it’s no wonder why breakups and divorce rates are at an all time high. It can be hard to stay confident that “The One” can really be trusted, but trust is a must, and finding your soul mate requires you to open up to an even higher level of trust.
These high levels of trust may seem high-risk for you, but you can be assured that your soul mate will not abuse the freedoms of your relationship, and that they will show an equal level of trust and openness, without trying to simply “keep up” with your level of effort.
The one you know is right will also be willing to remain by your side, even when you aren’t in a “season of harvest”. When you finally do connect with the right person, a union is made that goes far beyond any superficial situation.
