A Reason - A Season - A Lifetime

Republish entry of Oct 23, 2005

Someone forwarded this to me, which I thot very nice to share and keep..


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 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 god send and 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 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.

bagaikan cinta empat musim
datang ku membawa khabar gembira
winter, spring, summer ..autumn
i am here for a season.

bagaikan setia kasih seorang rakan
aku kemari ada urusan
listening ...listening..and more
i am here for a reason to bring u laughter.

I am ur seasonal friend with a reason!

*smile*

AM, be strong, sometime too much virtual interactions during time of academic committment may be too much a distraction. Convert your loneliness and frustration into intense focus on your thesis, that's how great artist worked. If you release those torturing feeling to people on the net, then you'll be spent of those tension that you could convert to productive energy . Just my thots but then different people exel in different ways. Take care.
