Something to think about..

Where are things going in my life?? I've been questioned about my relationship with others and honestly I don't even know where to start with how I feel. This poem/saying was giving to me by a friend when I became stuck, and I've read this a handful of times..

To this day I think about some people that are no longer in my life, and remembering all the good times is what makes me feel that "maybe" we can be something more than enemies/non friends again.. All of our conversations, fun times, pictures; that show nothing but happiness;, brings all these different emotions back to me.And of course instead of thinking about all the negativity you said to me, the issues you brought upon our relationship, or even the lies that I "supposedly" said, I will always remember US; Just being Friends/Family/Best Friends/Sisters. (Yes this is referring to more than one person)!!!

People come in and out of others lives for a purpose.. And that is the truth. We might not spend our entire lives involved with one another, but the time that we have/do share is something that we both can cherish for ever!

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

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 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 your 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.

Reevaluating some of the relationships I have (With family members, friends, co-workers), and this poem/saying just makes me realize that even though I would rather every friend to be in my life for a Lifetime, they might just be here for other reasons. Time isn’t slowing down, and I’m constantly moving forward. In less than 3 years I’ll be 30 years old, and some of the friendships that I’ve held in the past 27 years are no longer; some for reasons that I know of, and others just because it was our time to separate. I can only hope that if not ALL then most of the relationships I hold right now will be for a lifetime, but if they aren’t, then I can honestly say that all memories, laughs and tears were here for a reason..  

I'm not sure where my life is going, and who will be standing by me through my changes, but even though I'll cry and my emotions will show I know that life will go on. And after every rain storm there is a rainbow where happiness will be..


  1. Why don't you start by talking to those people? That's usually a step in the right direction.

  2. It's a hard thing to come to terms with. When you realize that the people in your life aren't going to be there for you throughout your life. They were the seasonal friend or the reason friend and for that short time that you shared together you will have those memories to cherish.

    It's a step in life, everyone goes through it and I believe that in it's own way it makes each one of us just a little bit stronger. It makes us who we are and who we are becoming. Take a deep breath, be thankful, and continue on...
