We always imagine our soulmate to be our spouse. Someone we’re in a relationship with, and someone who’s always on the same page as us. You know you can’t live without this person. However, the idea that your soulmate is anyone other than your spouse is rare. Many people don’t consider that a soulmate doesn’t have to be romantic.
Everything about having a soulmate is subjective. I know some people don’t believe in soulmates, while others have the traditional “you only have one” perspective. Personally, the notion that you can’t live without your soulmate is only part of the definition. I believe it’s someone with whom you’re always on the same page, like they can read your mind. The connection you have with this person is unmatched.
There’s one thing I disagree with in terms of the traditional view of soulmates — the person has to be your spouse.
Soulmates can be anyone — your mom, your best friend, your roommate. Literally, anyone who you come into contact with can be your soulmate. I also believe you can have more than one soulmate. You can’t limit that special connection to just one person. If you meet someone with whom you have a strong bond, you should consider them a soulmate. No one else has a say in this.
I believe I have multiple soulmates.
My husband and best friends are my soulmates. I can connect with and talk to all of my soulmates with few words. We are great at reading each other’s body language and communicating with partial sentences because we just get what we’re saying. I can’t picture my life without any of them. Even after going long periods without talking to my best friends, we can pick up where we left off as if we just spoke yesterday.
Giving up the idea that you have one soulmate and it must be your spouse isn’t for everyone. Honestly, the idea of soulmates is controversial in itself. If you do believe in having them, though, take a look around you and see if maybe there are multiple people with whom you share an unimaginable connection. It could be your neighbor, your best friend, or even your spouse. Just don’t limit yourself to the traditional view of having a soulmate.
