Was your soulmate hurt in a previous relationship? If a soulmate is hurt they can bring baggage into their relationship with you. This causes them to be more cautious in their next relationship. They try to set the pace and keep the relationship progress to a minimum.
They fear emotional pain and want to do everything to lessen the risk. They may not be ready or willing to commit to someone right away for fear of getting serious too soon. They’re unwilling to deal with their feelings, acknowledge them or express them. Even soulmates will act this way if past relationships hurt them. It actually makes sense, even though it’s tough to deal with.
Soulmates who experience hurt before crossing paths with you feel they have no control. They can’t control deep feelings that surface nor allow themselves to get serious too quickly. Their brain is telling them this makes no sense and that you can’t possibly feel a connection to someone you just met.
The ease at the beginning of a soulmate relationship can also feel too good to be true. Why is this person so easy to talk to? It’s unlike any relationship they’ve experienced. It’s scary for people who suffer damage to feel so positive about a new relationship. All the plans they put in place to keep from suffering again aren’t working. They worry about emotionally investing in someone. And feel they will suffer more than ever before if it doesn’t work out.
SABOTAGE AND RUNNING
In many cases, they will sabotage the relationship. They may run away from it, feeling like they must abandon their soulmate before things go sour and they get hurt. They’ll try to deny to themselves and anyone who will listen how they really feel. And deny how much they really care for their soulmate. A damaged soulmate will try to minimize their initial feelings, and take back things they once said. They’ll also tell their soulmate that they don’t feel the same way they did before. They may flat-out deny the connection ever existed.
Sound familiar? It’s sad to say but these things happen to so many soulmate couples out there. But don’t worry, all hope is not lost. It doesn’t mean it’s over between you. It just means you have to let them go for now. They need to put their issues to rest in order to experience a real relationship with you. They have to make the choice to either keep playing it safe, or to take the risk of a once in a lifetime relationship.
