People come into your life for a reason

Sometimes people come into our lives for a reason. They could be someone whom we meet everyday or sometimes friends who are there for a particular purpose to be met and phew they are gone. We don’t even realize they are gone. We don’t need them anymore or all the time.

People who come into our life for a season could be a soul mate or a spouse who may be in our lives for lifetime. Or someone like teacher, master or friends who are there for certain period and they just leave once we are good to go.


I know a friend, we studied in same school till 10th and we studied together for exams I and II PU, and later I don’t know what happened. She just stays couple of blocks away. Sometimes her mom comes to my place and vice versa, but we don’t get to meet. Neither of us have made any effort to meet I guess! I still haven’t been able to figure out what just happened between us. She was my best friend.


People of lifetime relationships are friends or may be ex bf’s and gf’s :) who give us life time lessons but are there for a very short period of time. There may be lifetime relationships for lifetime also, parents and friends who are there to constantly support us when we need them.


I mean...it’s very difficult to classify people this way. I don’t think we ever do...do we?

For us to know what to do for that person, we need to know whether a person has come in to our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime and we may never be able to classify until the person is gone from our lives. We may never realize which category the person is in when he or she is in our life. It looks like some kind of circle to me.




To simplify things…to treat everyone nicely as they long as the person is in your life and don’t regret or grieve when the person is gone - is the message I take from this one!

And as my friend SS says "the key is to make a difference to the other's life and to treat the person in his/her presence most valuably" (Ok... I am totally smitten by this line :P) supported by The story of 3 Questions (Click).

Perhaps I was gone out of blogging only for a season :)



PS: Here is the text played in the video in the left.

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 across to assist you through a difficulty
To provide you with guidance and supportTo aid you physically emotionally or spiritually
They may seem like 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.
