    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...

    And they exit for a reason.

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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    “I no longer believed in the idea of soul

    mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that...

    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...

    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    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.

    Anytime I think I have it bad with my physical

    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.

    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...
