Reasons, Seasons & Lifetimes

This week I was reminded how real friendships start exactly were they’ve left off, even if you haven’t had contact for a while; which lead me to think about an exercise I sometimes do with my clients when they feel that a friendship is dwindling and they feel left out.
Reasons, Seasons & Lifetimes Poem
People come into your life for a Reason, Season, or a Lifetime.
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 difficultly, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a Godsend- THEY ARE!
They are there for the reason you need them to be, Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something that will 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 realise is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer that was sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Then 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 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 foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learnt to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.
Work like you don’t need the money!
Love like you have never been hurt!
Dance like no one is watching!
Reasons, Seasons and lifetimes helps us to look at our relationships with fresh eyes and identify what we have learnt something that we really needed to learn for us to grow and move forward. That isn’t to say that when a friendship or relationship ends we don’t feel it or that we can’t wish that things remained the same, it just helps us to find value what was once there.
Friendships and relationships are incredible important, often when they end we are left confused, hurt and ugly, often asking well what is wrong with me? We need to go away and lick our wounds to emerge stronger and to acknowledge lessons learnt, it doesn’t matter what the lesson was,
True Lifetime friendships are those that can be picked up exactly where they left off without cause or blame. They instantly snap back to the supportive, loving relationships they were no matter how long its been! No matter the distance, no matter the argument.
