Not All Soulmate Relationships are Meant to Last

It would be great if all soulmate relationships ended in happily ever after, but unfortunately, this can not be the case. Soulmate relationships do not mean you have the perfect relationship, with telepathic communication, great sex nor that you will ultimately be together at the end of the day. Of course, soulmate relationships do include a great, cosmic connection to another soul where things just fall together and flow together, for a time. Many people believe that soulmate relationships guarantee a happy ending but if we examine the true nature of soulmate relationships we will understand that they can’t. The number of soulmate relationships that actually do last are few and far between.

Not All Soulmate Relationships are Meant to Last

Soulmate relationships are intended to teach lessons that evolve your soul and be a catalyst for change in your life. Many times when the lesson has been assimilated, the relationship can and will end. Through the course of soulmate relationships, our soulmate becomes our mirror reflecting back to us the issues and flaws within ourselves that we must address and work on. Sometimes this can happen quite easily and painlessly. At other times, what the soulmate reflects back to us can shatter our self-image and self-confidence as we must work to address those issues to become whole.


We must also remember that we are whole ourselves. We don’t need soulmate relationships to complete us, regardless of what Tom Cruise said in that movie. Soulmate relationships are not meant to complete us, but to compliment us, so that we can become the best that we can be. More than likely you may encounter more than soulmate relationship during your lifetime. If you have been in one soulmate relationship, learned the lessons from it and then moved on to other soulmate relationships, would it make sense to you that not all soulmate relationships are meant to last?


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

  • The soulmates have learned the life lessons and personal growth that was defined in the soulmate contract and it is time for the souls to move on.
  • One of the soulmates may find the connection too intense and actually be afraid of it. Please remember that just because the connection feels amazing to you, and they may say it feels amazing to them as well, deep down inside they may be terrified to be this close to another living soul on the planet.
  • One of the soulmates may have actually encountered another soulmate, or possibly even a twin flame, and would like to being a relationship with them. Yes that can happen especially since we live in a time where more and more soulmates, and twin flames, are incarnating on the planet at the same time.


Endings of soulmate relationships can be quite devastating. Although we talk in terms of ‘having learned the lesson and moving on’, it can be easier said than done. It is very important, if you have suffered the break with a soulmate, that you incorporate of lot of self-care into your life. Now is the time to be gentle with yourself and find the 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 are in the middle of it you may not be able to see the changes that have occurred within, but you will, in the right time and be able to look back and understand why this person was in your life and how you changed because of it.

  4. 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.

  5. Every you guys say is true..but it still hurts so oooo much

  7. This is so true and has happened to me several times!

  8. 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

  9. I needed this so badly right now. Thank you for speaking to my heart and sharing your wisdom.

  10. 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.
