A Reason, a Season  or a Lifetime!


This very special poem  has helped others. The author is anonymous.

  When in a relationship, good, bad, business, long term, short term, etc. and  the relationship comes to an end, the poem below is a good read. Many times I have suggested  these words to someone I care about and have always gotten  a positive response.

Just something to think about.

A Reason, a Season, or a 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 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. It is said
that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Margaret: What a wonderful poem. Gets you to thinking. I have tried to go back to reestablish a friend of a "season" and it can't be done. Just keep the good memories and move on, and work some more at your lifetime relationships. Even start a new one, since we don't know how long they will last. Hopefull for the rest of our lives.

Margaret, it's odd that this piece is authored by an unknown writer.  Almost as if the intention was to solidify the heartfelt truth in these words.  Such a great work to share, thank you.
