    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    Sometimes, we don't know why they come into and OUT OF our lives, and sometimes we don't find out until many years later when we can look back and finally see the whole painting, instead of just a few pixels. These moments are precious and enlightening and fill you with great...

    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.

    I've gained and lost people through out my life.

    Those who built me up and then tore me apart.... But who hasn't been through that. Yet, I'm not talking about lovers or whatever they're called, they were always a friend. It was always the same before I entered eighth grade. Once I hit the last year of middle school, that was...

    I believe this. I believe

    that our destinies are already mapped out. People come into our lives and leave if for no reasons other than to make you arrive at your destination, to meet the people you are supposed to meet and make a part of your life. Some will leave because they aren't meant to stay...

    My early twenties were a very lonely time.

    Sure, I had a few friends that I'd hang out with from time to time but for the most part I just stayed at home minding my own business. Things didn't get much better after I moved out. I actually felt more lonely then than I did living with my parents. I did manage to have one...

    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...

    Over the last couple of months,

    my father has been very ill. A combination of epilepsy, years of being an alcoholic, the onset of dementia and well, just old age. In these few weeks I've watched him deteriorate slowly. Each visit has been hard for both him and I. I sensed in my spirit two visits ago that he...

    I totally believe that.

    Good and bad we learn from these people and maybe help them along the way.

    And they exit for a reason.

    So don't chase after them. God has a better plan.

    2015 has been such a roller coaster ride

    for me. End of 2014 dragging into March of 2015 my ex of 4 years broke up with me for petty reasons and sorta strung me along (up until this day I am not sure why he broke up with me) but I've learnt to accept that sometimes you will not get an answer, that I might not get a...

    I definitely believe that

    but there are a few who can be a bad influence on you as well. When I was 7 my 15 year old cousin started looking after me after school when my mother started working again. Right from the first day she gave me allot more attention than she should have. When I was first told...

    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...

    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 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...

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    There are those who touch your being so gently, that on the sand of your life, the only footprints to be seen are your own. Others trample and stomp so hard, they leave crushed deep footprints, and sand strewn everywhere, and all you can do is wait helplessly...

    Consider

    Some people have had tragedy in their lives. Truly hard events that shake their world. But for many the things that hurt us, the things that cause us distress are the smaller things. The things that in the grand scheme of things are small...and perhaps petty. But it's funny how...

    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...

    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.

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,
