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.

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
