"All people we encounter play an important role in our lives"

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. 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 god send, and they are.

They arethere for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doingon your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or dosomething to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or act out, forcing youto 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 it is now time to move on.When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, to grow, or to learn.

They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never known, or help you do 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 occur to teach you life time lessons: those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.

The lessons are not always easy. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person (anyway), and put what you have learned to use in all the other relationships and areas of your life.Don’t waste time and emotional energy mourning the end of a friendship and the loss of a friend.Instead, consider why that person came into your life.Appreciate what you received from the friendship,and value the experience (and the person) for that.

Your life has been made richer.That is enough to know.Be grateful for the friends you once had,And the friends you have now.
