Short-Term Soulmates: How They Fulfill Our Needs

People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. In the beginning, it can be difficult to define the nature and purpose of a relationship. The following descriptions may help clarify this conundrum.

When someone comes into our lives for a reason, it is usually to fulfill a need that needs to be fulfilled. They have come into our lives to help us through a difficult time, to support and sustain us, regardless of the length of the friendship.

Perhaps they have come to us to give us the healing power of goodness and hope. They appear endlessly to reactivate the soundness in us and to help us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

They seem like a godsend and they are here because we need them. Often, without any warning, this person ends the friendship. Sometimes they simply walk out of our lives or cause us to end the friendship.

What we need to realize is that our needs have been met, our desires have been fulfilled and they have taken care of that. The request you sent has been answered and it’s time to let it go. This is difficult because we often think that we haven’t learned our lesson or that we have yet to reach our goal.

When someone comes into our lives for a reason , it is because it is now our turn to share, grow or learn with this person. They bring joy and rightly make us laugh. They teach us things we’ve never done or even thought about.

They often bring a form of creativity and wisdom that opens up a tremendous gift within us that has always been dormant in us. Often these mentors and instructors open our minds to new dimensions and give us new ideas. They often bring with them an enormous amount of grace. Experience it, believe it and enjoy it – it is real, if only for a moment.

Everlasting relationships bring us lifelong challenges and lessons so that we grow. Not only love partners but also parents, siblings and long-term friends do this. They bring us love, patience, generosity, compassion, etc. – these virtues that we construct provide a lifelong emotional balance. Our job is to be open and receptive to the lesson and love that this person brings.
Some lifelong friends can be very tender, while others can be very challenging. As a good friend once said:

“WHAT IF THAT PERSON CAME INTO YOUR LIFE SIMPLY TO DRIVE YOU CRAZY… AFTER ALL, YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT FORGIVENESS.”

Many relationships seem to separate and end, as a ‘ A Course in Miracles ‘ reminds us:

”NO RELATIONSHIP COMES ABOUT BY CHANCE, NOR DOES THE END OF A RELATIONSHIP SEEM TO BE A REAL ENDING. EVERYONE WE MEET WE MEET AGAIN BECAUSE IT IS THE FATE OF ALL RELATIONSHIPS TO BECOME SACRED. ”
