    last year my wife of 25 years asked

    for a divorce. I was not surprised but still heart broken. I felt as if i would never fall in love again. Then I met someone here on EP, who I fell madly in love with. It didn't work out, but that's ok, I learned that I can love again, that I can survive the heart ache and I can...

    I also believe ppl leave

    for a reason! I just ended my affair recently, or he ended it for me but if it weren't for that I would have never found the wonderful man I am talking to now! One chapter ends and another begins! The universe knows what it's doing you just have to have patience and trust in the...

    When I was 24 I had an online relationship

    that was horrible. He snorted coke and sold it and lived 20 hours away. I went through it for a year and a half. Never meeting him. We slept on the phone together every night. Sometimes I would wake him up at 4 am because I had a bad dream and we would talk about it. He sent me...

    I met a friend here on EP about 2-3 months ago.

    I honestly don't know what I did before I met her. She has been the best role model, support system and friend anyone could ask for. We are always in touch every day just to support each other and check in on each other. It truly helps me tremendously. Knowing I have someone a...

    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...

    Everything starts with what you believe.

    I believe I may fall, then I would; I believe he doesn't love me, I then look for evidence to prove, then I found them; I believe I m faulty myself, I compare me with others to prove I m not good enough, then I lose confidence. When I believe I'm worthy, people around me sense...

    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...

    I know so many amazing people.

    Each person has had a different affect on my life, good and bad. But I'm glad they came to be in my life. And as for the people who no longer are, I'm glad I knew them for the time that they were.

    but your life is better because you met someone. Something gets a perspective. A conversation gets a different meaning because of their inclusion.

    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...
