Are you a reason, season or a lifetime?

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

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 with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

My fences are horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong

I live a very simple life. It has taken my husband and I a very long time to get certain kinds of people out of our lives and keep it that way. We've pissed a lot of people off but we don't care. We do not like to have drama in our lives and YES you can live a drama free life.

There are changes being made in our life right now and I feel drama sneaking back in. I don't like the whole "don't tell so and so this but..." "you'll never guess who said what about you" etc. Drama and gossip are NOT apart of my life. If you gossip to me you will be weeded out. Gossip and drama leads to a lot of hurt feelings, fights and lost friendships.

So my guard (aka my fence) is high, tight and strong.

I just..ugh!! I want to scream. Drama is toxic. Bad friends are toxic. You guys, drama leads to stress and stress can make you so so ill.

I think that if people would shut their mouths a lot less people would have hurt feelings. Just because you know something about something doesn't mean the whole world needs to know.

Types of Toxic Friends.

I am posting this out of THE LOVE OF MY HEART and nothing less. I love my friends dearly.
