When it comes to being in a relationship, how can you tell that you and your partner are good not only just good for each other, but are good for each other’s souls? What exactly is a soul-nourishing relationship? It means that you and your partner are able to support each other and grow with each other in a fulfilling and healthy way because you not only take care of each other emotionally and physically, but you also nourish each other’s souls. So, how can you tell if you’re in a soul-nourishing relationship? Let’s take a look at some of the signs.
Your Relationship Isn’t About Two Halves Creating a Whole
Often times in a relationship, people tend to think that their partner will complete them…that together they will make a whole within the relationship. If you’re in a soul-nourishing relationship, however, you and your partner realize that it’s actually about two whole people creating opportunities and challenges together that will help each other grow and evolve.
Your Relationship is Never About the Other Person
That’s because it’s always about you as an individual. If you’re unhappy in a relationship, it’s usually because there is something about yourself or a certain situation you’re unhappy with. When it comes to most challenges in a relationship, it comes down to lack of self-love and self-respect. However, when you’re in a soul-nourishing relationship, you and your partner realize where disagreements come from and handle them accordingly by supporting each other.
You and Your Partner Can Share Tough Things
We all have things about ourselves we find hard to share with others. But within a soul-nourishing relationship, you and your partner feel comfortable sharing the uncomfortable with each other. You’re able to talk to each other about things you wouldn’t otherwise share with a partner whom you haven’t connected deeply with.
You and Your Partner Know You Must Be Able to Grow Apart Before Growing Together
When you’re in a soul-nourishing relationship, you and your partner realize that both of you need to be able to be independent of each other whenever it’s needed. You aren’t dependent on each other so much so that you cannot function without being around each other all the time. The two of your respect each other’s independence, allowing you to grow together in a much stronger and connected way.
You’re Both Aware That Your Relationship Takes Commitment and Courage
All relationships take commitment and courage, but some may find it takes too much work and get too comfortable in their relationships while letting that commitment and courage fade away. However, in a soul-nurturing relationship, you and your partner are always working on your commitment and courage, allowing your relationship to grow and strengthen every day.
You’re Both Aware That Your Relationship Will Change and Evolve
You and your partner are changing and evolving every day, so it’s only natural that the nature of your relationship will also change and evolve. In a soul-nourishing relationship, you and your partner embrace those changes within your relationship. Because of your deep connection, you’re aware of you the eventual evolution of your relationship and welcome it. And because you are so connected mind, body and soul, your relationship will deepen even further, giving you and even stronger soul-nourishing connection.
