Is your soulmate the love of your life? Is a soulmate and the love of your life the same exact thing? If you have met your soulmate, they will be the love of your life. That is not to say you could not love anyone before, or after, but a soulmate will always be significant.
It is safe to say that you will never love anyone the same way, or on the same level, as you do a soulmate. You would let things pass with a soulmate that you would never let anyone else get away with. You will find yourself doing things and saying things with a soulmate that you have never done before or since.
When you are connected to another human being as soulmates are, that bond is unbreakable. You feel they get you, and that they truly are a part of you. You may have been in love before, but not like this. Even people looking for their soulmate, or praying they arrive, are not truly prepared for the emotions that come with it.
Many people find it hard to find someone to talk to about their soulmate, because they know it is hard to find someone who can really understand. If you have not been there, you don’t really know what it is like to experience it. Many soulmates have a difficult time adjusting to and accepting that level of connection with another person. This is one reason why many soulmates become runners.
So it is safe to say your soulmate is the love of your life. But what happens if your soulmate doesn’t get their act together, or passes on? Some people are lucky enough to get another soulmate, especially if the relationship did not move forward like it should have because a soulmate rejected the connection.
Not every person who experiences the love of their life though, has actually found their soulmate. That is not to say that the love of their life was not special or that their feelings towards this person were not special. Love is an amazing thing, and intense, passionate, and hard to forget but not everyone we love is our soulmate.
Sometimes we cannot forget someone we know that was totally wrong for us, and we do the “what if’s” and wonder what could have been. It is hard to look back on a relationship that did not work out, especially if we know that person was the love of our life. Sometimes people call their first love the love of their life. In part that may be due to everything being “first”. It is a first kiss, first date, and all those things are special and sentimental to many of us. Whether or not the love of your life was/is your soulmate doesn’t really matter, what matters is that you found each other.
