PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR A REASON…
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.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
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.
Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season
or a lifetime
This came to me as a forwarded email from a friend. Since I am on leave from work these days, I have started reading each and every email before ‘marking all read’. This one touched a chord since I felt that each and every word sounded so true.
When someone is in your life for a REASON –
and that reason can be both positive or negative. I believe that the scientific principle that each and every action has an equal reaction is true even for day-to-day life. One good deed begets another. If you experience a bad day, it means that you must have done a bad deed to some one else. If someone enters your life for a reason, good or bad, it means you deserve whatever that person adds to your life. At times, when you feel lonely, you make a new friend. At times, when you are looking for love desperately, you find a new date. At times, when you are complacent with yourself, someone will appear in your life just to make it a living hell. Combating such a situation forces one to judge himself in a newer light. Such people also exit from your life in a similar sudden manner – once the ‘reason’ is over.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON –
and that season will change your life even if in the slightest way. You will meet such people in different walks of life. I have met them at various junctures of life and they have left me enriched in ways more than one.
Some people come into your life for a LIFETIME –
The more the number of such people, the more blessed you are. In today’s fast-paced life, one finds very few people who would actually remain with you for more than a reason or a season. But one takes a lifetime to identify such friends. Truly blessed are those who recognise them early and cherish them throughout their lives.
I have encountered all the three kinds of people in my life and I have attempted to learn something from all of them. I do not regret even the worst of such encounters as I believe that every experience contains some valuable life lesson.
