When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to
meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. S/he has
come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with
guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or
S/he is there to meet a need. Then without any wrongdoing
on your part or at an inconvenient time, s/he will say or do
something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes s/he
dies. Sometimes s/he walks away. Sometimes s/he acts up or out
and forces you to take a stand. What we must realize is that
the need has been met.
When a person comes into your life for a season, it is because
your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. S/he may bring
you an experience of peace or make you laugh. S/he may teach
you something you have never done. S/he usually gives you an
unbelievable amount of joy.
Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons. Those things
you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
You must accept the lesson, love the person/people anyway, and
put what you have learned to use in all other relationships
and areas of your life.
