Have you ever heard of the term karmic connection?
Whether we think about friendships or love relationships, there are only a few people we connect with on a deeper level. While we can have many things and thoughts in common with our closest friends, there are only a few or only one person in our life who makes us feel like we talk with our twin flame.
Spiritualists call that type of connection a karmic connection. Karmic connections or relationships are formed with people who have played an important role in our past life and we reconnect with them on Earth.
The easiest way to recognize your soul mate or your karmic connection is through the vibrational energy she/he transmits to you.
Sense of peace
Friends, family, or coworkers can make you feel at ease and relaxed, but a soul mate will give you the sense of peace. The soulful connection that is instantly created through your gazes, words, sounds or similar thinking will make you feel like you have just met an old friend who knows you better than anyone.
Similarities and differences
You will be amazed about how many things you both see/understand the same and how many similarities you share. Moreover, your differences will complete the gaps of the other one, therefore even your differences will complete you rather than distance you.
A conversation with your soulmate will naturally flow without you being worried about how you act, when and how you express your feelings. You can both complete each other’s sentences and it will be easy to understand what the other person feels without many explanations. It does not mean that karmic relationships do not face challenges or issues.
However, because of the profound understanding and the strong bond between the individuals, they patiently search for solutions that help them overcome the obstacles in harmony.
A karmic soul can be anyone in your life starting from family and friends to strangers and neighbors. In most of the cases, karmic souls appear in our life when we least expect and they tend to be an unknown person who we may randomly meet anywhere.
The role of a karmic connection is to help us through our self-development. They teach us lessons, they motivate or shape us. Some of the karmic relationships appear in adolescence, others in adulthood.
Some of the karmic relationships can last for the rest of our lives, while others can be for a short period of time when we need to change ourselves.

I met someone 4 years ago at a friend’s party. And it was like I instantly knew everything about him, even though I’d only talked to him for less than 10 minutes. I’ve never ever felt, with anyone else, such a sense of peace around a guy (usually I’m nervous, and worried about what I’ll say — not with this person at all!). And, on our second meeting, he snuck up behind me, and I knew it was him before I even turned to see. I felt it in my gut… and it was the strangest thing, but also the most comforting feeling. We have a TON of things in common. And it turns out we’ve attended the same school — without ever knowing each other then! A friend has even commented how this guy and I look like brother & sister — even though we aren’t related in any way. I truly believe he is my soulmate.
I met a guy several yrs ago thru FB. He contacted me and lived in a coastal town in another country. I was amazed at my strong attraction to him & even considered if it was a fake profile. He was an airline steward and amazingly at the last min was being sent to an international hub within a couple hrs of where I lived. We met up, hung out, and spent the night together yet nothing sexual, not even kissing, but I held him all night and it felt like he was my long lost love from like 200 yrs ago or something and it felt like we were finally reunited. He had to work the return flight te next morning but promised he’d return. He disappeared after that and his FB account gone. It was the weirdest yet one of the most intense encounters I’ve ever had with someone. He also had a particular, peculiar yet familiar, smell about him, like the ocean almost. I still can’t shake the strong feeling that I not only knew him from another lifetime but that there was a deep love we had shared before. Sounds so weird I know.
Sounds pretty cool actually
That’s so fascinating! ~
I am new to the town i live in and about 5 months into living here i met this girl alex, who instantly felt comfortable around. She was not only beautiful but put me at ease and calmed my nerves. I never felt i had to fake who i was or try at being a friend i was able to be myself. I ended up dating her best friend and our friendship grew along the way, after her best friend and i broke up our friendship grew alot more. We were hanging out more and talking more going out to things only the two of us and it was from very little effort on my part. Which if you know me is usually what i do is create moments and try to make things work. With her i didnt have to do that it just happened. Now the confusing part for me is that we have this deep connection yet she says she sees us as just best friends getting peace from eachother. Now i am totally ok with that but i her actions speak more of she wants and feels a relationship is forming yet her words say differently. I am falling in love with her and yet i havent confronted that in fear of losing what we have. But she is the most important woman in my life at this moment in time and cannot imagine my life without her. So is what this article states true, absolutely im feeling it and seeing it now i just hope God has a plan for us that will result in many years of happiness.
I had a similar experience. Had met a man who sent request through FB. Did not know him.But the way he convinced me that he also did not know why he sent me the request. It was a beautiful friendship over a period of 3 months. Then suddenly I found that he had stopped using the whatsapp number he had given me as also deleted his FB Profile. Later saw that same profile with a different name, leaving many questions unanswered .. Weird are some people and their ways.
I met someone 20 years ago and I felt that I know him for long time…. We get on well that we got married 5 years ago… Before our marrige we looked for an astrologer to match our horoscopes. And surprisingly for him(the astrologer) our horoscope matched so well that he never ever seen like this before. He said its like you put the two horoscopes on top of each other and you don’t see any difference hence we were born 5 years and 7 days apart. Astrologer said our relationship began long ago previous lifes ago and we have a really strong bond. We have a kind of intuitive relation, always know what the other think or did previously, I sometomes “send messages”(just visualize things) to my husband and he gets the message. Our marriage is great and together we are really strong. We are soulmates with a proof.(Horoscope)
I just wish we had a matching birthmark or tattoo………but nothings easy……..when I met my current karmic connection………I was a runner…….its like when we got to close I could feel this electrical sensation, and it scared the hell out of me…..our group of friends went out fishing…..I thought I don’t like you at all stay away……but sometimes in a group you have to work together……my fish swallowed my hook so deep that I could not move it……so one yell hey help her your closer……when he reach for it and we got about 6-12 inches apart …..I threw the fish hook line and sinker at him…….I could not let him touch me because whatever was going on was very strong and deep and charged… he looked up surprised, but also happy, and kinda laughed…his face lit up, I make some excuse to go back to my box and other pole…….he kept coming around for months off and on with our group of friends….and one day I was sad and hurting and I told him and he said I will give you a hug…..I laughed….sat there for a minute or two and then I put the armrest up and crawled onto his lap laid back and got my hug….nest thing we knew we had been talking in the dark me on his lap…..it was getting light outside and I thought omg I have been having this exchange of words stories for hours…….and not once did either of us try to get up or move ….we just where comfortable like we had been like that forever……other things happened to like he got a job in the town I lived in and we didn’t know each other yet……….but we quickly figured out that we knew what each other wanted or thought about…..it was like reading an open book, I just knew what he was thinking and he also knows what I am thinking…….I know I sound crazy…..but this wasn’t the way any other relationship has felt in my life…….whatever you want to call it…….its almost explainable ………buts also full of life…..its beautiful….he’s my home and my happiness……or I am his…..or its both…………
Took me years of of being with the wife to understand why the hell I love her as deep as time itself. But we have that bond.
I’ve met such a person recently … this feeling is unbelievable. I feel connected, even if we do not really know each other right now … it feels like we are familiar with each other…it’s fascinating…
I had what I believed was a very deep connection with a childhood friend. We were always friends. But I also always had a slight crush on him in high school. I actually remember one day, passing him in the hallway and he was glowing. Like had this white silverish ora around his whole body. This has proven to happen with other people in my life who also became significant people in my life. But anyways. I was always drawn to him. He was very laid back and also a quiet person until you got to know him. And he was one of the funniest people I’ve ever known. We became much closer the years that followed high school. and both of us commented many times to one another, how the hours just go by with our conversations and jokes. We also were both encompassed in addiction though. Which is rough. But we spent a lot of time together then. Through the good and the bad. The highs and lows. We helped each other very much. And I feel he helped me so much And he taught me so many things about life And just being a good person. He was my best friend. Although he had never liked me back. in a girlfriend way. Things sort of changed once he too saw the beautiful connection we had. And he changed his tune towards me to more like that of a girlfriend. And they were some of the happiest times I have ever had. Even a hug from him was such a treat:) we ended up seeking help for our opiate addiction together, and we went to detox together. Then I left and relapsed pretty quickly as I always do. And he went to further treatment. I had been so lonely being separated from him. That I jumped into a relationship with somebody. Since Ben was staying clean and away from me cause I was using. He messaged me on Facebook saying how he missed me and wanted to know how I was doing. I responded. Then sadly days after this. I got news that he had overdosed and passed away. I blame myself feeling I should’ve been there for him when he was saying he wanted to hang out. And I miss him every single day of my life. He was only 24 years old when he died.
I met a woman 3 years ago that will forever be etched into the fiber of my very being. I connected with her like no one else. I fell very hard and fast in love with her. She ran. I tried to chase her at first but I understood why she ran.i gave her space and tried again get about a year later only to have her back in my life briefly then she ran again. And I tried again another year later. The connection was still there. And soon my feelings for her got in the way. And once again I was left destroyed. This incounter / relationship or whatever it was changed me at my core. I was cracked open into a new being and forever changed by it. I’ve let her go. And I learned a priceless lesson. But I remain grateful that I got the chance to experience that deep connection.
I met a karmic connection. The intensity & passion was intoxicating. I never had someone so in to me, so intense, it felt amazing. I ran 3 times and after months of pursuit from him, I went back for a fourth. He decided he needed to move forward & is dating an ex,& suggested we let time pass and be friends. I’ve opted out of that. I can’t say I don’t want another go, it’s just that intense, but am trying to move past it and the emotional grip is excruciating. It feels as though I’ll bever recover. I’ve been dead for years so though it’s painful, I’m grateful to have felt it all.
I had someone who was my best friend for about 16 years. I cannot explain how but I know that when I was a Roman soldier with Julius Caesar he had been Egyptian. When I was an American soldier in WWII he was a Nazi. I have always known that we knew each other in both of those lives. In this life he had a very dark and sadistic side, loving to play hurtful jokes that would piss people off. He often tried to make me feel less than I really was. I forgave him far more times than most people would have. About five years ago he did something awful to a friend of mine. I realized that he would never change. I had reached a point where I knew my self worth and broke from him. On our last day together, I told him that although he had not hurt me personally, I could no longer be around him while he continued to behave like that. I said that I only wished him the best and I went on my way. All of my bad luck totally dissipated. I finally risked everything accomplishing a dream that I had wished for for years. I have no doubt that there was a karmic contract between us but I can finally say that I am rid of that tie once and for all.
Yes…l ve experienced that too but it’s really painful because it may not leave you easily as you want.
It has been more less one year I had met a man on the street. Since thst time he is in my life , we know each other morr than anybody else… we feel mind of eavh other, feelings, fears…even with 5000 km distance. Sometimes I can hear he is speaking to me.. i can hesr his thoughts… but when we are personally tlgether I cannot stand him. When we are not in touch I miss him a bit. I feel like our souls are connected very much but our egos cannot find the way. It is crazy but it is sad.. does anybody has any advice?
There was a boy i met when i was 15 and he was only a couple years older. The first time we met i had seen him from down the block and i looked at his face and instantly recognized him from somewhere but we had never met before. I kept staring thinking that it was probably all in my head but then he finally looks back at me and says the same thing “i know you from somewhere” then we both laughed but went opposite ways. I’m usually never that goofy with strangers but he felt like an old friend. If that wasn’t odd enough after that first encounter we kept running into each other around my neighborhood. It was like one minute this person didn’t exist then all of a sudden they are everywhere i am, every time we would run into each other we would laugh and joke about it then go our own ways. On my 16th birthday soon after that he tried to get my number but i told him no and he politely took that answer.Then i thought that was all but he transferred to my school sometime right after that and i know you might not believe me but i kinda knew that i was going to see him again because i had a dream about it and it played out just like the dream. He approached me after school once and thats when i got a little drawn into him but for some strange reason soon after that he disappeared. Im 19 turning 20 now and to this day i still don’t know where we know each other from , i sometimes think that none of this really happened and i just dreamt it all because it was just so strange. I do have the slightest feeling that we are going to run into each other again.
I’m currently at La Guardia airport, going back to the Midwest. This is trip that I take 1-2 times a year, and I usually dread it. I come to NYC yo visit my mother, and other family, but this visit was very different. I deeply connected with my aunt. I used to avoid her because she’s very enthusiastically loud, and it’s very difficult to get a word in. I didn’t expect to see her this trip, since I often don’t, because she spends most of her time in the Caribbean. After sitting next to her at the Thanksgiving table, I really can’t seem to get enough of my aunt. I have done so much soul searching and spiritual growth in the last year, and she’s validating all of the things I feel and ask from the universe. I am missing my aunt, and the connection that I now understand we have. I believe there are some of us that are givers of light, and it took me many years to realize she is a light giver. I am forever connected to her, and I know she feels the same. I don’t want to leave NYC…
I met a friend and we’ve been friends for 7 years now. We don’t feel any connection at first. But recently, we feel strong connecting to each other not just like we can complete each other sentences or know what the other think just by looking in the eyes. It’s way deeper. For example, when one of us feels sick later that day the other will feel sick too or if I feel uncommnly hungry my friend will barely eat. We found it funny and weird since we mostly text rather than hanging out together. Hmm
I am too afraid of men. But I got along well with him and for the first time when I saw him I felt “for sure he is not going to be more than a friend” Because he looked at me the whole time starring into my eyes.(later he told me because it looked so beautiful when I laughed so he kept staring) hehe.
And I keep talking to to him random things as he watched me. And somehow I made him to talk with me! Note that I’m someone who is afraid of talking with a guy. Lol.
After that we shared food on the same plate without any hesitation (since we don’t have money) and then after many days, of meeting. He held my hand while walking on the streets, cared for me very much. He went somewhere in his relatives home. I really missed him
and told him I think I have a crush on him. And eventually I told him I love him. And it did not feel very right for me for some months. But then even though I proposed him he kept the relationship going. Which I never got from any guy ever..He really wants to work on our relationship. AND I FOUND THAT WE BOTH HAVE THE SAME BIRTHMARK. it made us think for a while what must have happened in the past life.. He then told me he wants to tell me something. I got really nervous and thought. Omg that is it. And got very sad and said -it is ok if u don’t like me.. But then he told me he is younger than me. It is what he was about to say. I bursted out laughing! He is 7 months older than me. And I have no problem with that. Phew. Now it’s been 3 years since our love anniversary. We are much closer and much understanding now.
I met this girl at the most unusual time and place. We met at a religious campaign.it was the church district campaign.everynight at 7oclk for two weeks Buses from each church would transport their members each night to unite under a tent for religious ceremony.
She was sitting across the other side of the room from where I was. I could have felt her gaze upon me. Our eyes met, her focus was right upon me while she played her fingers blissfully through her hair. We continued stealing glances of one another as the preacher proceeded with his sermon. It was time for the alter call and I accompanied my uncle up to the front of the pulpit just as I saw others did. And now, Standing just before me in the small crowd of us that stood before the alter Was the girl from across the room. She was standing no less than 10ft from Infront of me,we were both mesmerized by the look we held for each other.it was like no other encounter. Inexplicable. words alone can not explain the sentiments of affection and intimacy that was shared that night. It all seemed so surreal.The lingering intense eye contact we shared felt more like we were looking into each other’s soul with a knowledge of all there is to know of each other. The energy that radiates between us both created a nurturing,nonjudgmental,peaceful, happy and loving environment. I was the happiest girl that night. I say that night because although the night had ended and I was already seated in my bus to depart for home. I looked through my window and right across me was the girl from across the room staring right back at me through her window. We both kept the gaze as my bus departed first and I felt my heart very heavy as I couldn’t see her no longer. I missed her already and I could tell she felt the same. I didn’t get her name.and I didn’t beat myself up for it until the following night. You see it was baptism night. The alter call that was made the night before was a call to baptism. The washing away of sins. And I was going to be baptized for the 3rd time. I Approached baptism with a confused mind for my heart would not let me think straight. They grouped together all who were to be baptized. And sent us to change into gowns. There was only one dressing room and to my surprise it was already occupied by the girl I met from across the room the other night. so I stood right where I was an proceeded to change. I placed my gown on my shoulders as I was taking of my skirt I felt her stare on my body. I looked at her and she looked me in the eyes smiled and bit down on her lips. We went back to sit down and we ended up sitting together. She was baptized before I was and it was an honored to have witnessed her baptism. She was dipped into the water with ease and she came out glowing radiant with a warm smile that gave me meaning to love and peace. I fell in love that very moment. After I was baptized I found myself standing next to this amazing girl who was shivering in the cold . I gave her a hug and she said congratulations. I felt embarrassed it’s like words couldn’t find my mouth I just caught my self trying to mumble congrats.the hug we shared was surreal but I know she felt it too. I felt shock waves flowing throughout my entire body more so my neck.our bodies were so intertwined our necks hung on the side of each other’s shoulder. I didn’t want to let go. I don’t think she wanted to either. We were both left speechless as we remain standing beside each other just before we took seats together. I wanted her name but I was so over flooded with emotions it all felt like it was all going too fast and I feared losing her,even if it seemed something so petty to worry about considering I only wanted to ask her name.so I was over joyed that night until I had to depart for home. My heart sank heavy and my mind was dismayed. I was baptized while sinning. because in my religion it’s a sin for homosexuality to be practiced.let alone me fancying another woman. i felt awful. I had just been baptized.which meant the I was free of my sins and I had to take into consideration that I was then made into a new creature in Christ. I did what I think was right I suppressed my feeling for the girl.the following night of the campaign I took with me a self prepared Dorcas bag filled with some of my belongings that I wanted to gift her and I scribbled a note that ,stated my name address and a note that read, welcome to the Christian family sister, I’m super happy we share the same baptismal date. I couldn’t afford to leave my contact info because I had no phone at the time. The morning we had church service under the campaign tent and as soon as I arrived under the tent my eyes began a frantic search shifting through the crowd to find the familiar face that I’ve grown to love in just a brief 3day encounter. I was dismayed when I couldn’t find her. Not even the lively song service could have cheered me up.that is until before we sang the greeting song in which I felt a small soft hand tap my shoulder offering me a hand shake followed by a bright smile that linger as a soft thank you escaped from between her fine pink plush printed lips.Sadly that was the end of the campaign and the last time we ever saw each other. We never even got the chance to say goodbye. It’s been 9months since our last encounter and I still miss her and I would think of her out of the blue and sometimes I could even feel her very near presence around me. I sense a reunion coming and I’m super nervous. Help? Can twin flame/soulmate be of the same sex?
I had a crush on a girl at my highschool. We did not even talk during those days. I wanted to propose her, but I thought I was too young to do that as, as a kid, I decided that I would propose my crush (if any) directly for marriage once . We departed in tenth standard. Then a few years went. When I was in the last year of my college we reconnected through Orkut. I was selected in a company in the campus placement at that time. We exchanged our phone numbers, I finished college and I requested to meet her, so she invited me to her home. We met for nearly half an hour at her home, the conversation was very cute. Then we departed as I had a job in other city. I used to visit my hometown every week and kept asking her for a coffee everytime and received her denial everytime. I used to call her and tried to talk to her as much as possible. The coffee proposals were as usual getting rejected. One day, I wrote her an email finally. She informed me that she got engaged. I was broken an bit, but somehow moved on. She was in my Facebook, but not much active. I did not want to marry then, but after nearly seven years of being in broken, I found someone whom I can call my wife and not karmic partner. I still remember the morning when I opened my Facebook and I saw her reply to all my messages sent till then. She was “Online”. I immediately replied, she informed me that she was divorced with a son and had moved out to other state, but that day she was in my hometown. I asked her for a coffee again, she accepted. We met for nearly one and half hour at Chocolate room. She talked about her relationship struggles and I talked about my psychiatric illness issues. She kept on telling me that she could not recollect anyone except me from our highschool. Finally I figured out that I was her subconscious highschool crush as well, but it was too late for both of us then. So we departed and we are not in touch anymore. As far as this article is concerned, she is certainly my karmic partner as she gave me all the positive vibrations in just two hours meetings in total that no one else has given me even for years being with me.
Finally, an answer to my question.
I’m in my summer class for advanced studies for my course, and I just realized he’s my karmic partner. Why?
First day we met was when I felt very bored waiting for my session to start… As he walked into the room, I looked at him and felt an unexplainable feeling, something like anger and a (where have you been after a lifetime) expression.
After a church mass I saw him and I looked skeptical every time I see his face..
As days go by, I think I felt happy seeing him, and sometimes our interaction becomes awkward to us both.
BUT I noticed that as we share glances, there’s a shimmer in his eyes that shows me certain memories that I didn’t know that we shared and were once ours, watching him from afar is already enough for me… I thought this was just a silly student teacher crush, but if I compare this to my previous feelings towards my previous interests, This, Is very different.
I’m pretty sure that before I knew , there’s something behind it all, I wondered everyday about the meaning of this.
I even consult and got help with friends, psychics and tarot card readers.. Yeah it IS a karmic relationship.
The reason why I got irritated the first time I see him was because I missed him and waited for him for TOOO long to come into my life. He’s a decade late.
How do you know something is a karmic connection and it is the one which will last? If the person in question does not feel the same for you no matter how connected you feel to them, is it a karmic connection. I have been in love quite a couple of times. But it has been always one sided. I could not evoke the feeling they evoked in me.Some people had a very positive effect on me. Brought a sense of peace.But I had no impact on them. How do we know if I am in a karmic relationship if I keep repeating the same mistakes. It’s like you are trapped in a vicious cycle and you keep falling for the wrong people and this cycle never seems to end. I have not been able to understand the purpose of it. All I can assume is these are my past life debts which I have to pay in this life.
Someone once hit me up out of nowhere asking me a question about a hobby I had and she wanted advice. So I replied to her, and it started a conversation. Two days later, she texted me again saying that I sang very well, so I was very flattered and it (again) started a conversation. We then started texting each other very often and I knew she was at the same school as me. But the thing is that I got attached sooooo fast to her, just after some convos. Like I’ve never been before. She had a romantic purpose. So we started frequenting each other and seeing each other at school and stuff. I even invited her at mine and we talked all night. As the days went by, she started being more distant and she was scared of the term « relationship ». I don’t think she wanted commitment. But all of this story lasted for 2 weeks. Not 2 months, 2 years, 2 frickin weeks. Now, (3 months later), i’m still not able to let go. I just can’t. I’ve seen her name every damn where and i still do. her name appears in my book titles, in my songs, on my screen tv, in the street, everywhereeeee and always. how am i supposed to move on if i keep seeing her everywhere?? I also saw her again in real at school and that just fucked me up. She apologized to me regretting what she had done. but it’s like she’s stuck in my heart and my brain and i keep on dreaming weird dreams about her and i feel like there’s a karmic connection because everytime she would talk to me or text me i would go like… happy as hell and i even once cried a tear of joy (i know, im too attached). But things were different with her. I had been in love before i had met her but she had the most powerful impact on me. i just can’t let go of her and we had only been frequenting each other for 2 weeks. which is barely nothing. we had so much in common. im messed up now cause i still want her. and she keeps on giving me unclear signs.
I meet this man that was beyond wonderful during the worst part of my life – I was going through a divorce from a man I married just because I was tired of being alone. He tried to talk to me a couple of times but I refused because he was involved with someone else. On a random day I met him and we ended up talking for hours. Our first date lasted from 7 PM until 5 AM and we would talk every day for 9 – 10 hours a day getting to know once another (or catching up). I have been in a couple of relationships but never experienced love on this level – I was in love with him from the first day I saw him. It was more than a mental or physical connection or attraction, it was talking to my best friend. I would call him for everything and he would do the same. I knew him for a year before he passed away and I feel like a part of me died with him. I can’t explain the connection that I have never felt before (and a year later still have not experienced again) but it was amazing. There were no secrets, guards or boundaries. If you every get this type of love hold one – it’s one of a kind and I’m forever grateful.
We met on work.. N i was comfortable around him all this time but never saw him to be my lover even for once.. But then one day he forced himself onto me physically and emotionally than after 3 to 4 months we got together.. We have been there for each other through thick and thin.. We even breakup a lot only to get together.. We don’t seem to be seperated for long.. But than this last few months he’s been acting strangely.. I’m surprised how I went from being the most important person in this whole wide world to a sense of frustration and burden to him suddenly. I don’t know what’s changed.. He kept saying I cannot ruin your life the last few days.. N then he transformed totally n started pushing me away. I wonder what’s wrong
For the past six years I’ve been so confused as to what role a certain someone played in my life and why they were still important! This makes a lot of sense. Funny how this popped up on twitter and I proceeded to do more research! After writing about the “whys”, this is what it’s come to. A karmic relationship!!! A friend told me something similar to this years ago. I asked him why was hurting so bad in the relationship I was in currently, and he told me, maybe you did something wrong in your past life. Here I am 5-6 years later. I was 20 when I met him. It’s crazy because before we had our first encounter, I saw him 3 times. He worked in the neighborhood I lived in. We exchanged numbers. He wasn’t my type, but for some reason I was drawn to him. I was messing around wit someone at the time, but I didn’t want anything serious with that person. A week goes by and I still haven’t reached out to him, until one day I did. Everything was so rushed. He was dealing with so many women, but for some reason I felt alone in the “relationship/ situationship”. I was always down and depressed because of how he treated me. He did a lot of hurtful things but for some reason, his imperfections never bothered me. I thought I could change him. I wanted to save him. We were so comfortable with each other. I never understood why or how I could love someone so much when all they want from me is comfortability. Why I felt as if I was nothing to him. 3 years felt like 10. Here I am, 27 years old, still trying to figure why and where did we/ I go wrong? I kept telling myself that maybe it was karma. He’s happy now, in a relationship with a woman my age, and I had to sit back and watch all of this play out on front of me. Its a painful experience. Emotional abuse. PTSD. Depression and I’ve also developed social anxiety. When it’s time to let go of something, let it go. Life moves quicker than your emotions. 20 can turn into 30 really quick. Be careful. Love yourself and let go of anything that no longer serves you well 🙂
