I like the word soulmates in plural form, not just one, soulmate, we are all so different, and connect in various ways.  One of my friends just lost his soulmate, they were together for 17 years, I went to the funeral yesterday, everybody could feel the love and sadness that we would never see him again.

My husband and I clicked right away when we first met, he really is a good fit for me, and I love to say everything in life is pros vs. cons.  Nothing is perfect, nothing is easy, and that is how we grow, and when you have found your soulmate, you grow together.


plural noun: soulmates
  1. a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
I love the Jewish explanation of soulmates:
3. Rabbi Sharon Brous, founder of nonprofit Jewish community IKAR
“In Judaism, your bashert—a Yiddish word that roughly translates to ‘bestowed’—is your destined partner. But I also like the Jewish notion of a hevruta, or learning partner. That’s the person who pushes and challenges you. It’s not about finding someone who completes you; it’s about finding someone who gives you the opportunity to complete yourself.”
In this article it has the Hindu and Buddhist approach as well, so beautiful,

We fall in love by chance.

We stay in love by choice.


I feel that as we go through life we meet many potential soulmates that may connect to some parts of us, but not to all.  We also change as we grow, so somebody that may have been a good fit and one point in our lives, may not be the other half after all.  Sometimes you hear of people knowing each other as teenagers, and then meeting later in their life, sometimes it clicks, and sometimes it is completely two different people.

I believe that we can have more than one soulmate in our lifespan.  I am so grateful and present that I am blessed with my other half, and it is so important to stay strong to who you are, communicate, and grow together.
