A Reason, A Season & A Lifetime

Someone very very dear to me, wrote me this very beautiful article. And I think it is exceptionally well written and speaks tones of truths. I can confess that I have gone through everything the article says and still enjoying every moment in it.
"People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that 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 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.Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime."
Whether "reason", "season" or "lifetime" YOU who sent me this...thanks for being here with me and for me. Indeed, you are a reason, the season and also a lifetime. Thanks a million. I love you!

I like the article, it's very true indeed. Sometimes, we really need to learn how to let go Seasons.. Letting go doesn't mean the memories with them have to be erased as well.

But, I don't think we should categorize which one is it in order to do what for that person. It's difficult to pinpoint who is a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime.. A potential Season might in the end turn out to be a Lifetime instead ;)

Thanks for sharing the article though!

Starry M : Yes, I agree with you totally. Especially your last line..."a potential season may turn out to be a lifetime". And of course, vice-versa too!

Hi Mike,

Season's greetings. It's been ages! First time I checked out your blog! You are really a talented writer as well as a photographer. I like this posting. It's food for thought. You have a very wise friend that sent you this article.
I feel as long as we cherished those who wants to be in our lives, that is all that matters. Life's too short for regrets or looking back.

Be safe and Peace.
