A Reason, Season, Or A Lifetime

I’m still up, couldn’t let that brief moment of anger I had just now, take control. Especially when I was in my zone prior, feeling free.  I remember reading this passage a few years back but it still holds true. I also heard a portion of it watching a Tyler Perry play with his infamous character “Ma’Dea”

“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed or just felt. They have come to assist you through a hard time, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. Then, suddenly, the person disappears from your life. Your need has been met; their work is done.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share or grow or give back. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They give you great joy. Believe it; it is real. But only for a season.
Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons—things you must build upon 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 your other relationships.
Think about the people in your life over the years. Whether they were there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, accept them and treasure them for however long they were meant to be part of your life.”
And when they are gone, be thankful for the gifts you received from them when they were here—for a reason, a season or a lifetime

  1. I know these feelings oh too well….I’m actually going through this with 2 of my closest relationships and trying to figure out the correct path! My perspective? Keep people in your circle who are going to elevate and uplift you…pour positivity you, and ultimately push you to be the best version of you that God intends for you to be. If you can’t bring that to the table…✌🏾 Be encouraged!❤️

  2. Yes, I have had to clear an entire circle of “friends” along my journey. I believe the same, if they will inspire and uplift, then those are “keepers” At the time I felt so frustrated but I grew to understand that “love is not just about looking at each other but looking in the same direction” I appreciate your insight & encouragement! 💞
