18 tips for breaking up with your soulmate (and moving on with life)

Society often portrays love as a fairy tale and relationships as the ultimate happily ever after.

Unfortunately, real life isn’t so simple.

You can have amazing chemistry, be soulmates, and still know that it’s time for you to break up.

It doesn’t matter how much you love someone or how connected you feel to them; if the relationship isn’t working for either of you, it won’t last forever.

If you feel like you’ve given it your all and there is no further potential for growth, here are the 18 tips for breaking up with your soulmate and moving on with your life:

1) Know that you don’t have to spend the rest of your life with your soulmate

Soulmates are often the perfect partner you need at a certain point in your life.

It doesn’t mean that you will spend the rest of your life with them, but that you will have a close bond and powerful connection with them for a specific period of time.

All relationships go through different stages, and the soulmate relationship is no different. If you feel like the relationship has run its course, then don’t try to force it to stay together.

Soulmates are often passionate and intense, but that doesn’t mean you have to be together for the rest of your life.

Sometimes, it’s better to end it while the relationship is still good, rather than let it fizzle out and end in a messy breakup.

2) Recognize you have reached the end of the road

The first step to ending the relationship is recognizing you have reached the end of the road.

This doesn’t just mean that you have grown apart or have stopped enjoying each other’s company as much; it means that you are no longer compatible as lovers and partners.

Growing apart is normal and happens to a lot of people. If you have tried everything to bring back the spark to your relationship and you’re still unhappy, then it’s time to recognize that the relationship is no longer working out.

3) Get help from a real psychic

The signs above and below will give you a good idea about how to break up with your soulmate and move on with your life.

But a surefire way to know is to speak with a gifted advisor.

They can answer questions like, “But aren’t soulmates supposed to stay together forever?” and “Will I ever find love again?”

The problem is finding someone you can trust.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. When I signed up for a reading, they provided me with a unique insight into where my life was going, including who I am meant to be with.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate, and helpful network of gifted advisors out there.

Not only will a genuine advisor tell you everything you need to know about your current situation, but they can reveal all your love possibilities.

4) Be honest with yourself about why it didn’t work out

When you’re trying to break up with your soulmate, you have to be honest with yourself about why the relationship didn’t work out.

The thing is that if you try to rush into a breakup without really understanding why you’re doing it, you’ll just confuse both of you.

It’s important to be as honest as you can be because you need to be able to trust in your own judgment.

You also need to be able to take the next steps in a healthy way that’s best for both of you.

Don’t cheat yourself out of an opportunity to grow and learn from this relationship.

Take the time to truly understand why it didn’t work out so you can take those lessons into your next relationship and do things better next time.

5) Be honest with yourself and your partner

Before you break up with your soulmate, be honest with yourself and your partner about why the relationship isn’t working.

Now, it doesn’t matter how long you have been together or how much you love each other; if you are both in an unhealthy relationship, then it’s time to end it.

A lot of people stay in bad relationships because they are afraid to be alone or because they don’t have the courage to break up with their partner.

You might have been hoping that things would somehow magically change or that your partner would realize they wanted to be with you, but that almost never happens.

6) Be grateful for the time you spent together

No matter how long you were together, it is important to be grateful for the time you spent with your soulmate.

You might have spent years together, been together since childhood, or dated for just a few months; it doesn’t matter.

Every relationship is an important part of your journey, and you can’t move on if you don’t let go of the past.

The truth is that if you are still holding onto resentment, anger, or regret from your past breakup, you will struggle to move on and find love again.

Be grateful for the relationship you had with your past soulmate and know that it has helped make you the person you are today.

7) Make space for spiritual and emotional growth

Take some time to reflect on the relationship and why it didn’t work out.

What were the biggest problems in your relationship?

Were there any problems that you could have resolved if you had been more honest with yourself?

You can use your breakup as an opportunity to grow and mature.

Who wouldn’t want to improve themselves?

I know I do.

The problem is that there are far too many fake gurus out there ready to sell you on unrealistic and ineffective solutions for improving your life by becoming a “better version” of yourself.

They want you to meditate, radiate “positive vibrations” and visualize the life of your dreams. They say this will make it come true.

Here’s the crazy thing:

Visualization and positive vibes won’t bring you closer to your dreams, and they can actually drag you backwards into time-wasting, idle fantasy, and frustration.

But it’s hard to move on with your life and grow when you’re being hit with so many Instagram influencers telling you how a special kind of yoga, diet or incense will transform your life.

You can end up trying so hard and not finding the answers you need that your life and dreams begin to feel hopeless.

You want solutions, but all you’re being told is to create a perfect utopia inside your own mind. It doesn’t work.

I want you to turn off all the noise for a second and get back to absolute basics.

What are you here for?

Before you can experience a real change, you need to really know your purpose.

I learned about the power of purpose from watching Ideapod co-founder Justin Brown’s video on the hidden trap of improving yourself.

Justin used to be addicted to the self-help industry and New Age gurus, who sold him on visualization and positive thinking. It left him lost and confused.

That’s why he traveled to Brazil to meet the renowned shaman Rudá Iandê, who taught him a life-changing new way to find your purpose and use it to transform your life and everything around you.

After watching the video, I discovered my purpose in life and it completely busted through the issues I was having with loneliness and feeling useless. This new way of finding success by finding your purpose actually helped me to get over my soulmate and become a happier, stronger, and more confident person.

8) Decide whether you want to remain friends

Some relationships end so badly that the only way to heal is to cut the other person out of your life completely.

Other relationships might have been so good that you still want to stay friends, even after you break up.

When you are trying to end a relationship with your soulmate, it’s important to decide whether you want to remain friends or not.

If you do, then you need to be honest with yourself and your partner about why the relationship ended so that you can have a fresh start as friends.

9) Take care of your health

Breakups can be incredibly stressful and exhausting, especially if the person you are breaking up with is your soulmate.

You might feel guilty, or your partner might not understand why you want to end the relationship.

It is important to take care of yourself during a breakup, which means eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep.

Breakups are draining, but you don’t have to let them completely take over your life and dictate what you do every day.

If you follow these steps and trust in your decision to break up with your soulmate, you will be able to move on with your life and find someone new.

Trust me, breakups are never easy, but they are necessary if you want to be able to move on with your life and find love again.

10) Don’t rush the next relationship

In my experience, it’s best not to rush into the next relationship.

Take some time to be by yourself.

You don’t want to jump into a new relationship just because you feel like you’re supposed to or because you’re scared to be alone; you want to go into the next relationship when you’re truly ready.

You also don’t want to be on the rebound when you start dating again; you want to go into the next relationship with your eyes wide open and a genuine sense of readiness.

It’s OK to be single and enjoy your time alone. It doesn’t mean that you’re broken or not worthy of love. It just means that you’re taking the time to be with yourself and discover what you want in a relationship.

But as you know, when it comes to love, things rarely go as smoothly as we’d like them to.

That’s why I recommend speaking to one of the gifted advisors over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier.

They’ve been incredibly helpful in the past when I’ve needed guidance on my love life, and they’ll certainly be able to help you with moving on after you break up with your soulmate.

Whether you prefer to chat online, or jump on a call and speak face-to-face, you can get clarity on this situation right now.

11) Know you’re not alone

Remember that you’re not the first person who has ever gone through this.

Breakups happen all the time, and there are millions of people who have been in your exact situation before.

You are not alone, and no matter what your situation looks like, there is someone out there who has gone through the same thing – I know I have!

You can find them in online support groups, at meet-ups in your area, or even just by reading honest blog posts and articles written by people who have been through this.

You don’t have to go through this alone. You have the ability to connect with other people and feel like you have someone to turn to.

All in all, you’re not alone, you just have to reach out and let people know that you need a little support.

12) Surround yourself with people who love you

When you’re going through a breakup, it’s easy to feel alone and like no one loves you.

Whatever the reason for the breakup, there’s a chance that you may feel like you’ve lost the love of your life.

That’s why it’s important to stay close to the people who love you – your friends and your family. You have support and people who love you despite what’s going on in your romantic life.

And don’t get stuck in your own head, I know it’s easy to do when you’re going through a breakup.

Remind yourself that you matter to other people and that even if your love life isn’t going the way you wanted it to, there are people out there who love you and who you can count on to be there for you.

13) Write a goodbye letter

If the breakup feels especially painful and you feel like there’s no way out, you can write a goodbye letter to your partner.

This letter can be about anything you want, but the most important thing is for you to get all of your feelings out.

You can write about how much you love them, why you feel like this is the right decision, or you can even write about how much you hate them if that’s how you feel.

The goal of this letter is to help you get out everything that’s on your mind, so you don’t have to keep it all bottled up inside.

This is a way to close the door to this relationship and let go of all the negative emotions you’re feeling.

14) Learn from the experience

Breakups aren’t all bad.

Let me explain: They allow us to learn what we don’t want in a relationship, and they give us an opportunity to see what works in romantic partnerships.

Breakups are messy, and they can be painful, but they also provide us with valuable insight into what we can do better next time around.

We can learn about what to avoid in future relationships, and we can also learn about what works when it comes to dating and connecting with romantic partners.

The bottom line is that a breakup doesn’t have to be a negative experience. You can learn from it and use those lessons to find a better relationship next time around.

15) Find some fun hobbies and activities to do

When you’re going through a breakup, it’s easy to fall into a rut and feel like you have nothing else to do but mope around and think about your ex.

It’s important to keep yourself busy so you don’t have time to sit around and obsess about the relationship.

What can you do?

Find a few fun hobbies or activities that you can do when you need to distract yourself from thinking about your ex.

You don’t have to do something that takes a lot of time; just find something that you can pick up and do quickly when you feel like you’re getting stuck in a rut.

Hobbies and activities can help you feel like you have a purpose again and that you’re moving forward with your life.

16) Know that you will find love again

Breakups are never fun, but they are a part of life.

Trust me, you will find love again, and you just have to be patient and trust in the fact that you will find another person who is right for you.

It might not happen right away, and it might take some time, but you will find love again.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in a lot of unsuccessful relationships or if you’ve been single for a long time; you will find love again.

You deserve love, and you will find a partner who loves you for who you are. You just have to trust that it’s going to happen, and you have to be patient and wait for the right person to come into your life.

Breakups can be painful, but they also provide you with a unique opportunity to reflect on what went wrong and to do things better next time. You can use the pain of your breakup as a way to learn, grow, and become a better person.

When I was going through my break up, I was feeling so hopeless that I didn’t think I was going to find love again.

Then I found the Love and Intimacy Masterclass by the world-renowned shaman Rudá Iandê.

In his incredible free video, he shared that to find true love and happiness, you must first love yourself.

It’s not about blaming ourselves for what went wrong, but realizing we’re worth real, deep love.

His Masterclass isn’t about quick fixes for relationships.

It’s about learning who you are, being true to that, and letting love flow naturally, both ways.

The love you invite into your life mirrors how you love yourself. When you’re whole inside, your next relationship will be even better.

Though breakups hurt, they can also teach us and make us stronger, leading us to the love we truly deserve.

You will find love again, but from a place of being complete, not needy.

17) Enjoy the newness of your life without your ex

When you’re going through a breakup, it’s easy to feel like everything that used to be fun is now gone, including the things that you used to do or enjoy.

You have to make a conscious effort to enjoy the newness and excitement of your life without your ex. You can start by finding new hobbies and activities that will help you get out of the rut of thinking about the relationship all of the time.

The more you focus on enjoying yourself and living life without your ex, the less you will miss him or her.

18) Take time for yourself

You may find that when you’re going through a breakup, it is easy to forget about yourself and how you feel.

Try to take some time each day for yourself to do things that make you feel good and get in touch with your emotions.

You may feel better after doing this, and also realize what is important in your life so that you can move on more easily in the future.


Breakups are almost always painful, but they’re also an opportunity for self-reflection and growth.

You can learn from your mistakes and make changes that will help you find better relationships in the future.

You don’t have to be alone or feel sad when you go through a breakup; you just have to understand that it will pass.

It might take some time, but it will pass eventually, and when it does, things will be different for you because of those experiences.

After reading this article, you should have a good idea about how to break up with your soulmate and move on with your life. But if you’re still unsure, I recommend getting in touch with a trustworthy advisor.

I mentioned Psychic Source earlier. Based on my own experience with them, I know they’re kind and genuinely helpful.

So instead of leaving things up to chance, take control of this situation and clarify what’s in store for your future.

Speaking to one of their advisors was a turning point for me, and I think it could be for you too. Especially if you want to find out how to move on with your life without your soulmate.
