People come into your life for a Reason, Season or a Lifetime (revised)

I stumbled up this on youtube and it made me stop whatever I was doing and think.  We meet so many people – some of them make us smile, some of them make us cry, some of them teach us a lesson or two, some of them help us grow, some of them make us hate the day we met them and some of them leave footsteps in our hearts that will never be forgotten…and I thank each one of them for being an important part of my life.

“…..People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each 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 walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. Sometimes they die. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. Your need has been answered, and now it is 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 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.”

    Wow! So true! You never know when you see somebody for the first time whether or not they’ll be the best or the worst thing that has ever happened to you…I wrote a blog similar to yours but I took a different approach to the topic. If you want to return the favor and comment on my blog and subcribe, that would be appreciated. Thanks.

    “the best and the worst thing” is still just a great experience. We are blessed with the opportunity to learn whatever we need to either that is patience or love without expectations

    I’ve heard that actually – can’t remember where or when, but when I heard it, it impacted on me too, a lot. It seems so simply true, and sort of like a guide to not getting too caught up in what you think SHOULD be, & opening your mind to ‘that’s how it is, with this person’. I’m glad to have read this today, to be reminded.
