To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on August 22, 2017 in Picture Quotes

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 wrong doing 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.

When 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.

    What a great quote!!! I wonder if it is actually a conscious decision that takes place here. I always thought that these paths would slowly emerge automatically through ones feelings. It is possible, that separation of paths or unite the paths happen somewhat later, but I think the need is certain?

      Awesome poetry conmenter Anie…separation or re.union may happen if there’s openness of hearts…maturity….it depends upon the persons concerned….still a matter of willingness and voluntariness.
