A Reason. A Season. Or A Lifetime.


A Reason. A Season. Or A Lifetime.
People come into your life for
a reason
a season
or a
lifetime.
When you know which one it is
you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a
reason it is usually to meet a need
you have expressed.

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 wrongdoing 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
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.

Some people come into your life for a season
because your turn has
come to share
grow
or
learn.
They 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
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional
foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson
love the person
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 is clairvoyant.
