35. What is a kindred spirit?

Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.

-Anne of Green Gables

Sometimes I am talking to someone and we just connect with each other. I have been unable to quantify exactly why.

There are other times I have a great conversation with someone, but even if we share lots of things in common with similar interests, I don’t feel very connected to them.

I’ve had friends where we just understand each other in a deeper way. I’ve had other friends when I feel like we’re always talking just past each other.

What is a kindred spirit anyway?

Having a kindred spirit means that you can be with someone without judgment, where you feel completely comfortable in your own skin and you can completely be yourself–and the other person feels the same way.

It means that you see enough of the world in the same way that you both are in focus with each other.
