When someone is in our life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need we have expressed outwardly or inwardly.
They have come to assist us through a difficulty, to provide us with guidance and support, to aid us physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a Godsend -- and they are. They are there for the reason we need them to be. Then without any wrong doing on our 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, or out, forcing us to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer we sent up has been answered and it now time to move on.
When people come into our life for a SEASON, it is because our turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They make bring us an experience of peace, or make us laugh. They may teach us something we have never done. They usually give us an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach us lifetime lessons, those things we must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Our job is to accept the lesson, love them -- even when we've been hurt -- and put what we have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of our life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant."
