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.

Many may have seen this, but a gentle reminder can sometimes make a difference...if you haven't already, maybe now is the time...?

You're quite welcome RA, and thank you for becoming part of mine as well. I too believe other people are our teachers, we learn by example sometimes, sometimes we gotta make some kinda astronomical mistake in order to learn what we need to learn. I've always been one to test the limits, gently so as no one but me knows they are being tested at the time. The boundaries that you cannot see with your eyes are the ones I most often break and don;t know I've done it until the person tells me so. I am blunt, up front, and seemingly "in your face", although I don't see myself as that way.

wHAT i'VE LEARNED FROM THE oops agent is this: remain calm, things are gonna be OK. shut up and listen. Mac

And all that is true. At the time when someone leaves your life you may not understand it, but I have looked back on some relationships and realized their purpose in my life and it makes sense. At the time it may hurt like hell and not make sense, but hindsight is 20/20.
Thank you for being a part of my life, may that be a reason, season, or lifetime. Time will only tell.

Very well said...perhaps what doesn't kill us actually does make us stronger...?
