A reason, a season or a lifetime

Thursday, September 27, 2007
Firstly this week Lightening posted about the past and it tugged something at my memory. Then Snos posted about saying goodbye to a good thing and I left a comment in the post about friends (or people in general) being part of our lives for a short time, or for a purpose. Cleaning out my often un-checked hotmail account today I found this, which was what I was trying to say. I hope to write more about what I mean by it over the weekend, but I think you'll get the idea.

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.
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.

    I read that for the first time a couple of years ago and how true it is! It helped me to understand about people who come into your life and then just go again, for the reason or season. It is profound. I think it's what I need to type out for my daughter to read as she gets upset about friends who are only her friend for a "part" of her life.

    I look forward to reading what else you have to say about it :)

    And the reason for the season is the constant change as we all grow through life.
