"True love is the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another". Soul mate for me is someone you deeply connect with. The connection is unbelievable that you understand each other even when words are not uttered. You both are always thinking about the same thing and you are compatible in every way. I don't care what those self-righteous people say but a soul mate is someone who completes your existence. People who have fallen deeply in love can relate when I say that when you have found your soul mate, your life is never the same anymore, you feel complete even if there are other things that are obviously lacking in your life. The tips below can help you understand it further:
1.) Believe that you will find true love.
Have a little faith and start believing that someday you are going to find that person who will love you for all that you are. Allow me to quote Paulo Coelho- "When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it", he is absolutely right. True love is such a deep, mysterious topic and there are many opposing views whether or not soul mates do exist. For some, there is no such thing. Nobody really knows, right? What you need to do is to keep an open mind and stop being cynical. When your thoughts are always negative you are also attracting negative situations. Your definition of soul mate may be different than most people so hold on to whatever you believe in and know that there is someone out there, somewhere, for you.
2.) Make yourself a better person.
Are there aspects in your life that you need to improve on? Do you have to work on some issues about yourself? Are you unhappy with yourself and life in general? Before finding a soul mate, you have to be the best person you can be. Work on your issues and make peace with yourself. You won't have someone stay with you if you are bringing a lot of emotional baggage into the relationship.
Another way on how to better yourself is by engaging yourself to whatever you are passionate about. You are not only helping to make the world a better place but you are bringing yourself closer to your soul mate.
3.) Be Patient.
Everything that happens in our lives has perfect timing so you don't have to rush into things or you may end up being with the wrong person. Take your time and give yourself a chance to get to know the person. Keep in mind that love is not just about strong physical attraction. True love will make you see past the superficial aspect of the relationship.
4.) Learn how to love and accept people for who they are and not for who you want them to become.
This is a very common pitfall in a relationship. We try and try to change somebody to what is ideal. Remember that every person is unique and no human being is created perfect. We are given the ability to love so that we can accept the person with all their imperfections and faults. If you live in your own fantasy world and you want someone perfect then you will never know how to find your soul mate. Unrealistic or delusional expectations can ruin everything for you. These will prevent you from experiencing what true love really is.
