A Reason, Season, or Lifetime?

Saturday, February 12, 2005

A friend forwarded the below article about friendship that is worth pondering about...


Are Your Friends Here for a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime?


Many of us are fortunate enough to have friends who are a consistent
part of our lives throughout all our ups and downs. However, sometimes
others we consider friends appear to enter, then depart from our lives
for reasons we try to, but don't always, understand. This piece nicely
explains the flow of people in and out of our lives.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

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.

Then 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. And like Spring turns to Summer and
Summer to Fall, the season eventually ends.

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.
