Relationships are always there for a reason. May be it can be intentional, sometimes we may fail to realise the existence of a relationship, sometimes even we won't agree such a relationship exists. People come into our life for a reason. It can be for a moment, it can be for a season or it can be for a lifetime. But it is born with some destiny. When we understand which one it is, then we will know why it is born and ultimately we will be knowing what should be done for that person.
Realizing relationships is not a great challenge. The real question lies in distinguishing why it is there for. When someone is there in our life for a reason, it is usually to fulfill our needs. The need we expressed to someone or somewhere. Sometimes somebody may be feeling we are in need. They have come to assist us through a difficulty, to provide us with guidance and support, to aid us physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like an Angel and they are. They are there for the reason we need them to be.
Some people come into our life for a season, because our turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring us an experience of peace or make us laugh. They may teach us something we have never done. They usually give us an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. During our lifetime, relationships teach us lessons, things we must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Our job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what we have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of our life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Then one day, suddenly without any wrongdoing on our part or at an inconvenient time, these persons will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they just cease living. Sometimes they just walk away from our life and memories. 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. Then we will realise that the prayer we sent up has been answered and that it is the time to move on. Just accept and remember their importance in life and be thankful to them for being the part of our life, whether they were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Again, one another day we may see someone peeping into our life. Then, we will recognize that someone is in need of us or someone is there for us.
