    I recently posted on this same subject: EP

    Link The one thing I forgot to mention is that it's equally important that when those people seem to disappear, don't cut them off and try and be patient because there may come a time when they return to you.

    Some people come into your life to teach you

    more about yourself or benefit you in some type of way .. Me; I deal with being too nice. I never really set boundaries so people think they can treat me any kind of way. Some people are set in their dysfunctional behaviors but that's all they know. That's how they've learned...

    Its weird how this works.

    But has been my experience. I cherish the fact and moment. I never take anything for granted.

    It’s just not always obvious why.

    And it’s not always how things will progress. I’ve only been on this site for about 2 months and have made some many connections and a few really great ones. But in the end, our real lives are still our priority and need to be. So sometimes just as quick as a great...

    Everyone Has Something to Teach Us ..

    The following was sent to me at work and I think its just wonderful. It is written by BRIAN  A CHALKER. 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...

    Don't feel sad over someone

    who gave up on you, feel sorry for them bc they gave up on someone who would have never given up on them.

    You may think this site is simply a gathering

    place for freaks and misfits, but that's far from true. I have met some intriguing people who have opened my eyes to a whole new world. One friend is probably fast asleep right now on the other side of the globe. But when he awakens, my inbox will get that little ding, and a...

    The challenge is knowing

    when to let go of these individuals who crossed your path for a reason, if only for a moment. It's not easy but letting go must sometimes be done. Accept the reason, add the story to the repertoire of your life, and move on down your chronological timeline.

    that is in your life, or around your life, is a blessing or a lesson. That's how I see it at least.

    When you least expect it people come into your life. Some stay, some go, but you can't deny that if you watch and listen closely, many will have a profound impact on your life. The best are the ones who stay for the long haul and begin to understand the darkest crevices of your...

    Sometimes the reason is not entirely clear.

    And sometimes it is just to cause the most excruciating pain. At least that serves the purpose of allowing you to know what the good things feel like.

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    but simply because we recognize or see something in them that we are longing for. It can be kindness, wisdom, humour, love or whatever else we are yearning to find and can see glimpses of in them. Sometimes they fulfill that need and move on, sometimes we discover we were wrong...

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...

    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    We may not understand why,

    it may take a long time for the story to unfold. But I do believe that some people are meant to be part of our life, that there is a reason our paths crossed. Sometimes the person is only in our life for a brief moment, but long enough to change us, to make a difference...

    The title speaks for itself. I believe people come into one's life in order to push them to the next level, even if it's only a small favor, when you're down they pick you up, if you need help with the smallest task, you get assistance. Others are there to influence you either...
