I Believe People Come Into Your Life For a Reason

    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...

    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.

    Anytime I think I have it bad with my physical

    problems all I need to do is look at my best friend. He couldn't afford his insulin he's only 46 years old. And he just had his left foot amputated up to his calf. And what a great attitude he has.

    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...

    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...

    Take The Good And Forgive The Bad.

    Let's just dream about each other,

    Either way it goes, whoever it is

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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    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.
