How You Know Your Dog's Your Soulmate

How You Know Your Dog's Your Soulmate

Happiness is a warm pup.

Dog is man's (or woman's) best friend. Sometimes it's hard to believe that we have been lucky enough to be blessed with these magical creatures.They are a constant source of happiness and love. Dog owners know soulmates are real, because our dogs are our soulmates.

1. You miss your dog when you're away.

Sure you miss your family, friends and comfy bed, but there's nothing you miss more than your pup.

2. You love waking up with your pup.

And you wonder how people don't allow their dog to sleep on their bed with them, because there is nothing better than waking up next to a dog.

3. You both get so excited when you reunite.

Whether you're a part two hours or two months, you're both so excited when you reunite again.

4. They're a source of comfort for you (and vice versa).

When your dog is scared of thunder or is stressed out at the vet, you're there for them. And when you're stressed about school or upset over a situation, your dog is there for you.

5. You want to take your pup everywhere with you.

"Do you want to come to college with me?" - me, asking my dog every time I go back to college.

6. You're happiest when cuddling your dog.

Happiness is a warm dog, and nothing is more therapeutic than cuddling with your dog.

7. You think they're the prettiest/most handsome dog in the world.

And you get personally offended if someone doesn't agree that your dog is perfect.

8. You can't stay mad at him/her.

Even when they chew your retainer three times in 6 months, even when they get into the trash, even when they bark at shadows at 3 a.m. you can't stay mad long.

9. Your whole social media is dedicated to your pup.

And you may even have an entirely separate media account just for your dog, so everyone can see how perfect and cute they are.

10. You refused to get up if they're on your lap.

You don't want to disturb them. You will die sitting there if you have to.

11. You hope to find someone who loves you half as much as your dog does.

If you marry someone who loves you even a fraction as much as your dog does, you will be lucky.

12. You can't imagine life without them.

You don't even know how you survived all those years without your dog in the first place. You thank your lucky stars everyday that your pup found you and you found your pup.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

I Will Always Call Myself A Dreamer

The new thing you should practice: reading the vibrations that surround you.


In "The Science That Will Change Your Future", Dr. Bruce Lipton talks about how everything in life communicates through vibrations. We can simplify everything, even to the atomic level, to good and bad vibes. Before you snort at the person who says you're giving off bad vibes, maybe consider this first. Dr. Lipton talks about how the gazelle doesn't go up to the lion and asks, "Are you my friend?", instead the gazelle can feel its bad vibes. How can the gazelle do this?

Vibrations do one of two things when they interfere with each other: mesh or clash. Good vibes are vibrations that mesh together. Bad vibes are vibrations that clash. The gazelle can sense its energy clashing with the energy of the lion (he terms this as destructive interference).

Dr. Lipton talks about how we are trained to not sense these vibrations. We see animals do it! Some people will tell you that cats just don't like them, for whatever reason. I have had many friends who said that if their dog didn't like you, then you probably aren't a good person.

Animals base everything off of their intuition to these vibrations; it is their key to survival. Everyone knows that dogs and cats can't see color. But have you ever really watched your pet? How their eyes dart around the room, or they growl at nothing? They are seeing things we aren't able to see. They are sensing vibrations in the room that we are not capable to sense.

What does any of this have to do with classifying yourself as a dreamer?

Those who are classified as dreamers are mainly those who pursue careers dealing with their artistic abilities. Having artistic abilities means you are more in-tune with not only your emotions but the emotions in the space around you. You are more perceptive of others and your surroundings. Thus, you are more in-tune with the vibrations that your art comes from. Your brain makes a neural connection between an emotion (a vibration), and what you produce (your art).

If you are a dreamer, you are unrealistic. You are perceived as driftwood; floating on idealism. If you are stiff and follow a designated path, you are practical and considered a "realist."

But who is more real? The one who ignores the vibrations in their environment; the businessman guiding the Caterpillars? Or the dreamer, who not only recognizes the vibes, but is able to portray them in a way that others can not only comprehend, but feel in their own ways?
