Some times I have trouble dealing with people. I used to blame myself if people act up, if I read some bitterness in their face, or if they do not respond to my call .Me saying this, might be a surprise for most who know me as a serial facebooker which I don’t deny. I am a social-networker but not a social animal. My aunt used to tell me “ሰውንምንአደረኩትብቻአትበይምንአድርጎኛልምበይ” that did not work either as you can't always make others at fault just to feel better and it is not always that people grow apart because of what happened between them or of dispute or of disagreement. Sometimes it is just the time and the truth of the matter is relationships are not straight forward rather a two-way thing and very dynamic.
Here I have shared a Yoruba inspirational writing which in some way gave me the perfect answer about people that come to and leave out of my life.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. 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 wrong -doing 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 or out 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 it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may 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.
