One of the fans on the Fan Page asked me to do a note on this. Sadly when a relationship goes wrong for an old soul it goes very wrong. People think old souls are simply moving on but there are a lot of emotions involved for an old soul.
If we look at our inspirational image you might ask yourself but why the chickens. I think stay with me and you will understand better when the article is finished.
On my grandmothers farm there was one specific hen that was breeding month in and out. Although, not a single egg hatched. One day my grandmother informed me that she caught the hen stealing another egg and she was sat this time only on the stolen egg. The egg hatched and she raised the chick. The chick became a beautiful cockrell at the end of the day. The hen never permitted the cockrell to socialise with other chickens and she made sure he slept with her every evening. This went on till the hen died of old age.
Relationships that can be ended
Old souls have intense relationships with a lot of love, empathy and trust. Once this trust is severed there are serious obstacles ahead and it is very seldom that these relationships can be mended. Once the old soul has made the decision to end their relationship there are a number of emotions involved. Disgust, anger and hate are often the most prevalent. The person feels cheated out of a relationship where the other partner broke the trust and couldn'tt re-establish the trust. This can happen when there is a third person involved, abuse, lies etc.
In some cases, there's no remorse about the trust that was broken and this doesn't sit well with the old soul. For many old souls, they have a lot of emotions to deal with, the love might still be there. Nevertheless, it’s the other negative emotions that help the old soul to move on. It can take years for the person to heal completely.
Relationships that can’t be ended
Then you get the relationships that can’t be ended because of mental and physical illness at a later stage in their lives. In today's world, we often expect society, children and/or a healthy parent to look after a sick parent.
With the trust gone, often the respect for the person is also gone. The old soul is forced to care of the sick partner who they no longer have feelings for, apart from anger and disgust. It is expected from the healthy person to do this with love and compassion that is no longer there.
At the end of the day the old soul ends up feeling guilty and ashamed about these emotions which were not their doing in the first place. The person end up being traumatised more than once, first when the trust was broken and now the guilt. Is there a way to remedy this? No, when the love, trust and respect is gone the only thing a person can do is accept their own feelings and not feel guilty about this. It is not the old soul that started these emotions.
If we return to the inspirational image, some people do end up as the mother hen but unlike in the case of the hen, these old souls are “forced” to do the hen work. It all comes back to the Master Plan “All parties involved with the decision making, agree and accept the “contract” terms and conditions.” In the end we did agree to come and learn this lesson.
