A Reason? A Season? Or a Lifetime?

I’ve had a very strange weekend which started on Friday when I found out that someone I know has left the company. Apparently, she didn’t tell many people about it. I can respect that. When I questioned her where she’s going after receiving the out of office email, I received no response. There wasn’t even a message to say, “I would rather not say.”

It made me question if she had even considered me as her friend. It also made me wonder if I did anything wrong. I had not asked her out for lunch in the past few months since she had said that she’s very busy. Hence, I didn’t want to take more of her time. After all, she has been working so hard.

Then, I came across something written by someone “Unknown”. I guess sometimes, we just have to let them go, especially when we don’t have all the answers. I’ve decided not to ask her any further and just let her walk away. Perhaps she is meant to be in my life just for a season, or a reason. There is a season for everything. This is the season to say goodbye to her. I wish her all the best in everything and that God will continue to lead her to whatever path He has for her.

Reason, Season, or 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 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.
