Not All Soulmate Relationships are Meant to Last

Not all soulmate relationships are meant to last. Souls come together for a reason or a season. But they’re rarely together for a lifetime. It would be great if all these connections end in happily ever after. Unfortunately, this can’t be the case.


You may be with your soulmate. But that doesn’t mean you have a perfect relationship. Now they all do include a great, cosmic connection to another soul where things just fall together and flow together. But only for a time. Many people believe soulmate relationships guarantee a happy ending. But if we look at the true nature of soulmate relationships we will understand why they can’t. A few of these unions that can go the distance, but they are few and far between. But many soul connections are not meant to be.

Soulmate relationships are a catalyst for change in your life. But once the lesson is complete, many of these relationships will end. One of the characteristics is a soulmate becomes a mirror. And it reflects back to us the issues  within us we must address and work on. Sometimes this happens easily and painlessly. At other times, a soulmate reflects back to us something that will shatter our self-image and self-confidence. And we must work to address those issues to become whole.


Since the Universe creates us, we’re already whole. We don’t need someone to complete us regardless of what Tom Cruise said in that movie. We have soul connections to compliment us. And this allows us to become the best we can be. You may encounter more than one soulmate during your lifetime. Perhaps you’ve been in one soulmate relationship and learned the lessons from it. And then moved on to other soulmate relationships. So wouldn’t it make sense not all soulmate relationships are meant to last?


So what are some of the reasons soulmate relationships can’t last?

  • You learn the life lessons and personal growth detailed in your soulmate contract. And it’s time for both souls to move on.
  • One of  you may find the connection too intense . And even be afraid of it. Please remember that just because the connection feels amazing to you, they may see it differently. They may even say it feels amazing but deep down inside they’re terrified to be so intimately bound to another.
  • One of the you may already have a soulmate, or twin flame. And would like to being a relationship with them. Yes that can happen. Especially since we live in a time where more soulmates, and twin flames, are incarnating on the planet at the same time.


Endings of soulmate relationships are devastating. Although we talk in terms of learning the lesson and moving on, it’s really hard. It’s very important, if you’ve suffered a break with a soulmate, to practice self-care. Now is the time to be gentle with yourself and find things in your life that make you happy. Spend time with your friends, take a short vacation and do the things that nourish your soul. When you’re in the middle of it you may not be able to see the changes happen. But you will at the right time. And then you’ll be able to look back and understand why this person was in your life and how it changed you.

      Ive been with my soulmate for 25 yrs we are separated but we still miss each other and feel the same love for each other but we dont know why we separeated and why

      • perhaps you both have to go through some personal growth that can’t happen while in soulmate union.

  1. I have to hope that what you say here is true – that just because we’re soulmates doesn’t necessarily mean we’re meant to be together. I met a girl fifteen years ago while we were both undergraduates. Fifteen years I’ve loved her. Fifteen years I’ve never told her of what’s inside, but I’ve felt it literally since the moment we met in 2001. We were never together in the romantic sense, but I feel a connection to her that I’ve never felt with anyone before or since. The memory of her is the shadow that looms over all relationships I’ve been in. We were lab partners and I fell for her the instant I looked up from my desk and saw her sitting opposite me. We lost touch for a few years, but I continued to think of her daily. She is now married with children and we have maintained a long-distance friendship. There is a connection between us that I think we both feel and often hint at, but never discuss – something greater than either of us. Still, I do not think we’ll ever be together, not in the way I want. Due to her marriage, I feel I cannot tell her what I’ve kept bottled up for the last fifteen years. But I also feel that I’ll never have closure until I do. I fear my mangled heart will love her for eternity and she’ll never know. I don’t desire to tell her I love her so I can hear her say it back. I want to say it so she knows. If it’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all, where does that leave me? I need something to help me accept that and move on. Please help me move on.

  2. I have a question….if there are many soul mates/twin flames that come into our lives, how do we know when we’ve met “the one”? The one that we’re meant to be with, to marry, to spend the rest of our days?? Thank you! <3

  3. Don’t fret over how long a soulmate relationship lasts. Just enjoy being with them while you can. Life’s way too short not to enjoy the beautiful experiences we are sent. There will be many soulmates throughout life. They aren’t twin souls.
