Soul mates do more than relate

You suffer an overwhelming sense of loss. Loss of a job perhaps.

An acquaintance relates to your loss. Something similar happened to him.

A friend sympathizes with your loss. He recognizes and cares about  your pain.

A soul mate empathizes with your loss. He knows you so well that he can place himself where you are. He understands and feels your pain.
