They realize how blessed they are to be spending their days in the embrace of their best friend, lover, and sacred partner.
Rather than brag or shout it from the rooftops, they quietly relish their relationship and give thanks from a deep place of gratitude. During the past 13 blissful years with my soulmate, Brian, we often talk about how blessed we are to be together and experience a relationship that exceeds our wildest dreams.
The notion of a soulmate oftentimes leads individuals to seek out someone they believe will make them feel elated, euphoric and love-drunk.
This high level of ecstasy, which is fueled by obsession and infatuation, is not the basis or stable foundation for a long lasting union.
Terms like "twin flames," "the one" and "love of my life," also personify the concept that we have a sole partner in the universe that will fulfill every whim, need and desire.
The person that fulfills you is the one who makes you feel the most centered, stable and comfortable.
They will be the person that you can truly build a life with and not just live in a state of unrealistic nirvana – that type of high is not conducive to a long-term relationship that nurtures true connection and growth.
They think love has passed them by and that it's better to just to be in a relationship than to be alone.
Others are staying married for the sake of the kids and believe it's their duty to fulfill the sanctity of marriage, even though they believe that it is not "true love."These individuals are forcing themselves to live a life where they believe that the world has something more to offer. In all actuality, they have found what they are looking for, but the deception of their mind tries to convince them that they are miserable, alone and they've lost their chance.
