Is your soulmate keeping you a secret? Does your soulmate hide your existence from everyone he knows? Do you hate being the secret your soulmate won’t share with those around them? No one wants to be someone’s secret, we want them to proudly acknowledge our relationship with them. So why are soulmates often kept as a secret?
Sometimes one soulmate is already in a relationship. Instead of ending that relationship, which is the more honorable thing to do, they choose to cheat on their current romantic partner. Under these circumstances it is understandable why they choose to keep their soulmate relationship hidden from those who may judge them.
On the other hand, it could be that either you or your soulmate have children they want to hide the relationship from. They may feel the children are not ready to know their parent is involved with someone new. Their children may have a negative reaction to a new relationship. To void the drama that could come with it, they keep their soulmate a secret. Some soulmates keep their relationship a secret from their children until they know the relationship will last. These are not bad reasons for keeping the relationship a secret. But that secret should only be kept for a reasonable amount of time. Children should not dictate the lives of their parents, and parents should not be afraid of their children. At a certain point a parent should feel free to introduce their soulmate to their kids.
If your soulmate is in denial, they may keep you as a secret to those around them. They may not even acknowledge to YOU they believe you are their soulmate. It is hard for some people to talk about how they feel about another person. Some people think if they talk about how good something is going they are going to jinx it. Until your soulmate is able to accept the reality of their feelings for you, they won’t bring you out into the open. They will act single, and may even tell you they are not ready for a relationship.
Until you decide you will not enable them to continue hiding, this could drag on indefinitely. Sometimes being apart from a soulmate can force them to face their feelings head on. Once they do that, it is much more difficult for them to deny them. Then there should be no more reason to keep your relationship a secret and then your soulmate connection can be made public.
Some soulmates meet and immediately keep their relationship a secret. Sometimes families may disapprove, for religious or cultural reasons, but sometimes it is simply because they are dysfunctional. There will come a time, and they should wait too long, for them to tell the truth about your relationship. The problem isn’t going away, it won’t disappear and this won’t work itself out by magic. At some point soulmates must be brave enough to stand up to a family that opposes them. They have to show their family how serious the relationship is and that they are willing to fight for it. You may not like confrontation, but sneaking around forever and being terrified of being caught sucks too. And if you get caught, instead of coming clean, it often makes the situation much, much worse.
There are reasons for keeping a soulmate secret. But there is no reason for keeping that soulmate a secret for an unreasonable time, or indefinitely. If your soulmate is keeping you a secret, it may be time for you to put your foot down, and insist they bring your relationship out into the world.
