People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out
which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually
to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have
come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance
and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They
may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason
you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part
or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring
the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes
they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take
a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our
desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent
up has been answered and it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because
your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you
an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something
you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount
of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships
and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship
