    Sometimes they come into your life to teach you

    compassion for others, to teach you how to deal with angry broken people, to teach you how to communicate calmly with irate and hysterical people. Some of the biggest jerks who have come into my life have been my greatest teachers.

    A Longing I so long to look in your eyes,

    Love, to see just a glimpse of your soul... Instead, we are doomed to be parted, leaving our hearts with a hole. I so long to taste your sweet lips, Love, to cover your lips with my own. A kiss to last us a lifetime- eliciting the softest of moans... I so long...

    I am a firm believer

    that everyone who comes into your life is there for a reason! It may be a simple encounter in the street. It could be a more intimate connection you never expected. Heck, even the people you communicate with here on EP...everyone you meet is there in your life for some reason...

    Isn't That The Beauty Of Life?

    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...

    They Come & They Go

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    older bro about school. He told me that he didn't graduate with a BA til he was 26 and that I'm way ahead of the game. That I'm on the right route and to stay in school. To learn from his mistakes. My sister's co-workers who are nurses like her told me the same thing and...

    I think I love my BF.

    I haven't met him yet but I know, in my gut, my soul, that we are going to be together for a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very long time :') meeting each other in 2 days... Can't wait but I'm also quite nervous, which is natural I guess. <3

    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

    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...
