Although twin flames have many similarities, they can also uphold the theory that opposites attract. When twin flames enter our lives, we many actually find ourselves shocked as well as unprepared. Our first reaction is one of a deep soul level recognition which is often followed by a flood of intense emotions. Many people have expressed that it resembles being hit by a massive tidal wave because the experience can actually knock you off kilter for a little while.
Many of us expect that our twin flame should be just like us, almost a carbon copy of our personalities and character traits. We have built up scenarios in our heads, as well as our hearts, with the expectation of what our twin flames will actually be like. For many, when we think of the term, twin flames, we erroneously believe it can be an identical twin, which is somewhat of a misconception. We could expect twin flames to agree on every major topic, have the same tastes in music, movies, restaurants, past times and hobbies. We could believe twin flames have the same strengths and weaknesses we ourselves posses. Of course this can be the case for many twin flames, but there are just as many who actually have many differences within their personalities, likes and dislikes. In reality, having opposite characteristics, likes and dislikes works very well for many twin flame couples, just as having a lot of similarities works for others.
It may seem confusing how twin flames could be a great team if they are indeed opposites in many ways. The term opposite does not indicate someone or something is opposing, it just indicates that they are different. One of the twins may posses a great amount of internal strength and fortitude while the other has is weaker or more laid back, but they still make a great team. As long as the team can create balance, as opposed to opposition with their strengths and weaknesses, they remain strong.
Being opposites does not always lead to conflict because twin flames mirror each other. Think about having a business partnership. If one of you loves doing the administrative part of the business and one of you hates it, wouldn’t it make sense for the person who loves the admin work take that responsibility? You don’t have to fight over who is going to do the administrative work. You are glad to hand that responsibility over to your partner. They are great at it, like to do it and do a fantastic job. You, on the other hand, get to use your skills and abilities elsewhere in the business, perhaps doing something your partner is not overly fond of doing. There is no competing here, only complimenting. This is just one example of how being opposites can work for twin flames who are in a relationship.
When a couple has children, a set of twins, they can be fraternal or identical. Just because they are not identical does not mean their bond is not as strong. The same applies to twin flame couples. Twin flame couples who are identical in many ways actually enjoy the similarities within the relationship. Twin flames who are different enjoy their differences just as much. When it comes to twin flames, the higher purpose of the connection is the main focus. As long as your divine mission to deliver something of value to the planet is similar, everything else just clicks together. Whether it be mirror images of one another or polar opposites, twin flames bring out the best in each another. So, if you think you have encountered your twin flame but are unsure because of how different you are, put your doubts aside. Not all twin flames are identical, some are opposites.
