Written For My Friends
this has always been my take on friendships...it's not perfect but it does help ease my mind when the friendship changes or fade away
i've had these kind of friends and been this kind of friend i spent 4 years online and phoning with a friend to find myself writing him "WELL I GUESS MY JOB HERE IS DONE"...and it was...and to continue it would have held him back from making the next steps he needed to take to continue to grow his life
we r electronic Birthday and Christmas card people now and that's as it should be Chaos is the natural order of things...smooth sailing is the delusion
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 walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. Sometimes they die. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. Your need has been answered, and now it is time to move on . When people come into your life for a SEASON...It is 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 . most people make the mistake of reaching too far and holding too tight to what may be only REASON and SEASON friends
the Universe will always send u more..we won't be wanting...especially if we have our head on right about the inconstancy of the flow...the ebb and tide the ocean of possibilities will still be there for us to be drawn toward...and surf board in hand we can wade in and enjoy a new tide
