The soul is what we have in common and yet we spend a lifetime in relationships thinking we have nothing in common with the people we share our lives with, but perhaps that’s not altogether true. If we’re with the right person, our souls will connect.
We tend to think relationships won’t work because we have nothing in common with the other person, but relationships aren’t always about us having to have things in common. Relationships and friendships are less stressful when two souls connect on a level far greater than what we see on the outside. When our souls connect, we don’t have to try too hard. The soul is what we have in common.
Of course, away from the soul, we must continue to work on our relationships, listen more attentively, communicate and be prepared to continue to make those emotional connections. Sounds obvious, but perhaps it’s not as obvious as we think. We think we have the connections and therefore stop trying. We need to be selfless.
Away from our soul connection, we must continue to work on meaningful relationships. When souls connect, we already have that in common. Unfortunately, when we put too much value on material worth, we will always fail to see or work on those connections, friendships or relationships properly.
All relationships need empathy, compassion and tolerance. In this fast-paced world we live in and where we are with all that is going on in the world, we in fact have the opposite.
By making others a priority, taking out our own agenda and making our relationships work, without soulful connections, these things can make relationships work.
