Do soulmates forget each other? Will your soulmate be able to forget you with the passage of time? Are you worried that if you have no contact with your soulmate they will forget you?
It is not easy to forget a soulmate. The deep connection between soulmates is so significant an experience that it would be almost impossible for soulmates to forget each other. It is hard to forget someone you can’t stand, who treated you horribly and that you wish you never met. So, it stands to reason it would be even more difficult to erase from your mind the memory of someone you loved and were connected to so deeply.
We can remember people we worked with, went to school with, and what we watched on television as children. Anyone we have significant (and sometimes, in many case that we barely knew) encounters with stays in our memory bank for a very, very long time.
The fear we hear so often from clients and readers is that their soulmates will forget them and move on. This is actually a very unrealistic fear. There are so many people who would love to forget bad memories in their lives and cannot. We are not able to choose which memories we discard and which ones we keep. Yet so many people worry needlessly that after a few months, or even a few years, their soulmate will have no memory of them and what transpired between them.
First of all, a soul connection is a permanent one. You can’t forget a soul connection. You can deal with it so the memory of it does not haunt you for the rest of your life, but that does not mean the connection is gone. When true soulmates have been separated for a long period of time, sometimes even decades, they often say when they met again it was as if time had stood still. The feelings are still there, and so are the memories. Many admit they picked up right where they left off and the connection was still as strong as ever.
Think about the relationships you have had in the course of your lifetime. Not the people you dated only once, or a handful of times. We are talking about people you had relationships with and developed feelings for. They don’t have to be a soulmate or even someone you had a good relationship with. Have you truly forgotten ANY of them completely? Of course not. So why on earth would someone think that soulmates can truly forget each other as if they shared the experience? It defies logic, reason, and basic human ability.
So many people would like to forget their soulmate because they are in the throes of the drama that goes with these relationships. They may have not heard from their soulmate in a long time and want more than anything to just be able to forget and move on. Guess what? They CAN’T. They can deal with it. They can handle it. They can move forward from it. But they can’t forget them. Just like your soulmate cannot forget about them either.
