#3: A karmic partner will not have the same core values and life vision as you
One of the main challenges you will encounter in a karmic relationship is compromise. Even though you may have intense feelings for a karmic partner, they are someone who has different values and a different vision for their life and future. So, like most relationships in the world nowadays, you end up compromising to keep the balance, and to keep each other happy. This means you are constantly investing in giving up your true desires to keep the relationship afloat.
Twin Flames are different, because the Oneness you share is one of a the signs of a true Twin Flame. You share the same core values and the same vision for life. When you think of compatibility, Twin Flames are naturally compatible, not because they look and feel exactly the same all the time, but because a Twin Flame is de facto, a representation of the Divine for you on Earth, and they are everything you could ever desire in a person.
