People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed whether that be outwardly or inwardly. That person has come to assist you in a difficult time, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. What you must recognize is what is that need and when is it time to move on.
When people come into your life for a season, it is because your turn has come to share, to grow or to learn. This may bring you the experience of peace or joy. The person may teach you something you have never done. Believe in that, but it is only for a season.
Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons — those necessary blocks upon which you must build in order to have a solid emotional foundation in life. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships in all areas of your life. It is about trying not to look back. Having no regrets. Living in the here and now while relying on those lifetime lessons to guide you as you move into the future.
This blog is meant for everyone who has had a friend and lost him. For every person who has found that soulmate but let him get away. For not realizing that the very person who was meant to help you through your life was looking right at you, and you turned away not knowing life would have been so much better in the long run if you could only have had the strength to get you through the difficult short run. Where were you to turn for that strength and knowledge? Why didn’t you know? Instead of moving forward, you spend a lifetime looking back. It made every one of life’s small steps so much harder because you weren’t looking forward — you were too busy looking over your shoulder.
May this blog touch your life and help you to get through another of life’s lessons.
