I truly believe that everyone we meet, we meet for a reason. We have encountered this specific person for a purpose. We have friends who remain, friends who come in our lives but soon depart and friends who just pass by our daily lives. Even if it is just running into someone at WalMart, there is a reason sprinkled in our path that we may not even see at this moment in time.
There’s a quote that goes something like, “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime,” which really resonates with my life. Maybe the simple reason of your WalMart encounter is the daily smile you both share that starts your morning off right. Each action has a direct impact.
Instead of dwelling on the pain of saying goodbye to a friendship, look at it as a chapter that was filled with many memories and now lessons that will forever live with you. Sometimes we are welcomed by friendships that aren’t meant to last forever, but are meant to teach us and help us grow on our beautiful journeys.
On the contrary, sometimes we have to learn when to let go and continue on our journey. It takes courage to stand up and realize that sometimes you need to move forward. This doesn’t mean things have to end nasty, it just means that you are mature enough to see that these people may be holding you back in a way that at this moment in your life is not what you want.
‘Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”
Life is mysterious and relationships are just another addition to our journey. Through the ups and the downs we must appreciate it, for it’s all a part of who we are today. Not one of us goes through life experiencing perfect relationships; in fact, the only way to uncover life’s treasures is to experience them.
A friend, a real friend, someone you love and trust, is going to tell you all the things you do not want to know about yourself. A friend tells you when you are right and helps you understand how you could be wrong. A friend will yell and scream, but when you need them, they are there. A friend is someone you cannot and do not lie to. They know your secrets and hold them in confidence. A friend never judges, yet will let you know when you are doing it “again.” A friend sees your mistakes and, without covering them up, steers you in another direction.
A friend pushes you, shoves you and drives you real hard. Just when you think you are about to break, they whip out the Band-Aids, patch you up and start pushing again. A friend always says things that make no sense until you hear a stranger say the same thing. A friend is someone you can look at and see yourself and know you are really going to be all right.
When I see my friend, I see myself.
