6 Huge Differences Between A Partner And A Soulmate

6 Huge Differences Between A Partner And A Soulmate

For many people, finding a soulmate to spend their life with is a goal they hope to achieve. People don’t want to just find a partner to live their lives with, but find a soulmate that understands them on a deeper level. And when it comes down to it — it is easy to see that there are some differences that make finding a soulmate so amazing.

1. A partner tries to understand your feelings, while a soulmate feels your feelings

Partners can be wonderful about trying to understand your feelings. They are usually willing to sit and talk with you to find out what you’re feeling and why you’re feeling it. But a soulmate doesn’t even need to ask what you’re feeling or why you’re feeling it. They know it and understand it within their own heart and will not only not need it explained, but a soulmate will also feel your feelings with you. When you’re hurting, they are hurting, when you’re filled with joy, they are filled with joy. Soulmates are so connected that their feelings are attached by the heart.

2. A partner wants to hear your thoughts, a soulmate already knows them

A partner wants to hear what you’re thinking, they like to know what you think about movies, music, and current events. A soulmate doesn’t need to ask because they are already thinking the same thing. Without saying a word they know that you hated that movie you just saw and most likely they felt the same way about it.

3. A partner encourages you to shoot for your dreams, a soulmate won’t let you settle for anything else

A partner wants you to go for your dreams and your goals. They are encouraging and want to see you happy. But a soulmate doesn’t just push you towards your dreams, they won’t settle for anything less. Soulmates will make sure that you are going for your dreams no matter what they are, and they will do anything in their power to help you get there. You may have what seems like an impossible dream, but your soulmate doesn’t think anything you dream is impossible and will make sure you reach your goals.

4. A partner doesn’t want to live without you, a soulmate finds it impossible

A partner will tell you that he doesn’t want to live without you, that he wants you in his life. But a soulmate will find it impossible to live without you. A soulmate not finds it impossible to even picture a life without you. The thought of living a life without you is something that they know they just can’t do so they are willing to do whatever it takes to keep you in their life.

5. A partner has dreams and hopes that you are in them, a soulmate has dreams that always contain you

A partner will have dreams and plan for a future, and they will hope that you are in them. A soulmate will plan for a future that contains you, without any doubt. Jobs, houses, and any major plans for a future will revolve around what is best for both of you, not just one of you. Soulmates make sure that everything is discussed and open on the table, so that one person doesn’t plan a future that the other won’t want to live in.

6. A partner will hide parts of themselves, while a soulmate will open their entire soul

A partner finds a need to hide parts of themselves for fear that their partner won’t approve of them and their deepest secrets. A soulmate leaves no part of their heart left hidden. Their deepest fears, anxieties, worries, joys, and experiences that they hide from the rest of the world will be shown to their soulmate. Nothing is left hidden and a soulmate will never judge your heart. They will be understanding and love you through it all.

Having a committed partner is a wonderful experience. Having a soulmate who loves you is an even more amazing thing. Finding a soulmate means you have someone in your life that understands you, needs you, and feels with you like no other person. It’s a relationship that can barely be summed up into words- except that it is magical.

7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

7 Public Speaking Techniques To Help Connect With Your Audience

When giving a presentation or speech, you have to engage your audience effectively in order to truly get your point across. Unlike a written editorial or newsletter, your speech is fleeting; once you’ve said everything you set out to say, you don’t get a second chance to have your voice heard in that specific arena.

You need to make sure your audience hangs on to every word you say, from your introduction to your wrap-up. You can do so by:

1. Connecting them with each other

Picture your typical rock concert. What’s the first thing the singer says to the crowd after jumping out on stage? “Hello (insert city name here)!” Just acknowledging that he’s coherent enough to know where he is is enough for the audience to go wild and get into the show.

It makes each individual feel as if they’re a part of something bigger. The same goes for any public speaking event. When an audience hears, “You’re all here because you care deeply about wildlife preservation,” it gives them a sense that they’re not just there to listen, but they’re there to connect with the like-minded people all around them.

2. Connect with their emotions

Speakers always try to get their audience emotionally involved in whatever topic they’re discussing. There are a variety of ways in which to do this, such as using statistics, stories, pictures or videos that really show the importance of the topic at hand.

For example, showing pictures of the aftermath of an accident related to drunk driving will certainly send a specific message to an audience of teenagers and young adults. While doing so might be emotionally nerve-racking to the crowd, it may be necessary to get your point across and engage them fully.

3. Keep going back to the beginning

Revisit your theme throughout your presentation. Although you should give your audience the credit they deserve and know that they can follow along, linking back to your initial thesis can act as a subconscious reminder of why what you’re currently telling them is important.

On the other hand, if you simply mention your theme or the point of your speech at the beginning and never mention it again, it gives your audience the impression that it’s not really that important.

4. Link to your audience’s motivation

After you’ve acknowledged your audience’s common interests in being present, discuss their motivation for being there. Be specific. Using the previous example, if your audience clearly cares about wildlife preservation, discuss what can be done to help save endangered species’ from extinction.

Don’t just give them cold, hard facts; use the facts to make a point that they can use to better themselves or the world in some way.

5. Entertain them

While not all speeches or presentations are meant to be entertaining in a comedic way, audiences will become thoroughly engaged in anecdotes that relate to the overall theme of the speech. We discussed appealing to emotions, and that’s exactly what a speaker sets out to do when he tells a story from his past or that of a well-known historical figure.

Speakers usually tell more than one story in order to show that the first one they told isn’t simply an anomaly, and that whatever outcome they’re attempting to prove will consistently reoccur, given certain circumstances.

6. Appeal to loyalty

Just like the musician mentioning the town he’s playing in will get the audience ready to rock, speakers need to appeal to their audience’s loyalty to their country, company, product or cause. Show them how important it is that they’re present and listening to your speech by making your words hit home to each individual.

In doing so, the members of your audience will feel as if you’re speaking directly to them while you’re addressing the entire crowd.

7. Tell them the benefits of the presentation

Early on in your presentation, you should tell your audience exactly what they’ll learn, and exactly how they’ll learn it. Don’t expect them to listen if they don’t have clear-cut information to listen for. On the other hand, if they know what to listen for, they’ll be more apt to stay engaged throughout your entire presentation so they don’t miss anything.
