When we begin a relationship with someone, we would like to believe that they are our soulmate for the rest of our lives.
However, there may come a time where both of you stumble across certain differences between each other that you never knew existed until now.
This can make us feel confused sometimes, unsure of what we should actually be expecting from our significant other; and yet all we really want to do is make sure that both of you are on the same page.
We build the image of our soulmate up so much through years and years of growing up, that we think we have a perfect image as to what we want when it comes to being in love with someone.
Even though you may seem a little conflicted at the moment with your partner and second guessing yourself, if they’re really your soulmate, then you should look at these seven ways to tell if your partner truly is the one meant for you, or maybe you should be looking for someone else.
1. Does Your Partner Have A Forgiving Nature?
One of the biggest things, that matters most in all relationships, is being able to forgive the other one of previous failures or misadventures they’ve had before meeting each other.
If your partner likes to loom your previous mistakes over your head all of the time as if you owe them something for the things you did in the past, then your partner might not exactly be the soulmate you’re looking for.
If this person was truly in love with you, they’d be able to get past all of the things that you used to do before meeting them. They certainly wouldn’t be taunting you with old memories that you prefer not to look back on.
2. Do You Trust Each Other?
Another major, key element to every single relationship, especially to those who believe they’ve found their soulmate, is being able to trust one another.
If you feel as if you and your partner are still figuring out how to trust one another, then they may not exactly be the soulmate you’re looking for right now.
Being able to trust the person you love just goes without saying that it’s one of the most necessary pieces of your bond with each other. Otherwise, what is the point of being with on another if you aren’t going to trust them?
3. Can You Communicate With Each Other?
One of the other important elements to being in a romantic relationship with your soulmate is being able to communicate with one another about literally anything at all.
There should never be any idea that it’s taboo to your partner, to where you’d feel uncomfortable talking to them about something. Your soulmate will understand or at least try to understand where you’re coming from whenever you bring up something you’re nervous about.
Not only that, but you have to be able to communicate in order to truly understand each other. Expecting your soulmate to be a mind-reader is a very unrealistic expectation to have about the other person.
4. Being Yourself, Comfortably, Around Them
If you feel like you aren’t able to be your true self around your soulmate, then you might want to reconsider looking for a different one.
Being able to express everything that you feel as well as being able to be yourself no matter where you go or who you are with is a very important thing to have when you think you’ve found your soulmate.
They should love you for you, no matter what that looks like. Your happiness should matter most to them and not their own selfish preferences that would oppress you otherwise.
The same goes for them, if you don’t let your soulmate be themselves, then you should probably consider being with someone else.
5. Can You Let Your Guard Down?
Being able to let your guard down and be vulnerable around your partner is also another key aspect of a relationship with your soulmate.
If your partner was truly your soulmate, then you’d be able to expose every emotion that you’re feeling to them without fear of consequences.
Your soulmate, as well as yourself, should be able to shed all of your armor so that you can both be closer to one another without feeling like something bad is going to happen if you let them in for too long.
This is a genuine feeling to have around your soulmate and if they aren’t able to share those tender moments with you then you might not be with your soulmate.
6. Can Deal With Compromises
Compromises are a constant thing with growing relationships, especially with your soulmate.
If your partner isn’t able to figure out compromises with you in order to make you happy,as well as making your relationship work, then you might not have found your true soulmate.
Of course, there will always be stubborn people in the world, but when it comes to being in love with someone, you should do your absolute best for them even if it means creating compromises for each other.
Your happiness together should come first, above all else, in your relationship.
Hopefully this has helped you determine whether or not you think your partner is your true soulmate.
