When you think of the word ‘soulmate’, what comes to mind? For the majority of people, finding your soulmate is synonymous with living happily ever after. It means finding that one special someone who was made for you, someone who will whisk you off your feet and kiss all your troubles away. We are surrounded by this ideal in popular culture, in the fairy tales we grow up hearing, and in Hollywood (or Bollywood!) movies. For many, finding their soulmate is a lifelong mission. And yet very few people, if any, find relationships that fully live up to that ideal.
If you’ve ever questioned whether soulmates exist, you’d be right to feel skeptical. The good news is, they do exist. However, an actual soulmate is something very different to what most of us have been taught to believe.
