I agree that there are many soul mates.
I think that feeling of "predestination" or absolutely compatibility are meant to draw you to a specific person so that some needed lesson or issue
can be resolved within yourself.
Thats why I think some soul mates break up and others stay together, the core experience meant to be shared is not the same.
There is a psychologist that says when you get that feeling of a strong click, RUN not walk the other way, as it is a sign of some big deep emotional
stuff coming your way, and it is not going to be pleasant. (I forget his name, he does marriage counseling and wrote some book)
I disagree with that. I think if there is some experience or person that has a strong draw for you there is no point in running, it has to be dealt
with somehow, and sometime, why not see what it is and try to master it?
My personal experience has been that he is right, that that click is an indication of a lot of soul searching and work on the way. Every strong click
has also been a transient relationship for me. There was a lot of similarity and feeling of affinity in the beginning, but generally they have served
to show me sides of myself that I was unaware of, that I eventually decided to allow to pass from my life.
My longest, most satisfying and enduring relationships have been with people I really didnt feel strongly one way or the other about initially.
Generally speaking, they have been people who are NOT much like me at all, but very different from me, and I have gained enormously from them by
learning tolerance, and how to appreciate sides of things that differ from my own. We compliment one another, and together make for a more well
Great thread, and great responses. I really enjoyed reading everyones experiences and view points.
