“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime”.
I recently heard this quote for the first time, and it seemed to come to me at the perfect moment. In college, new people come into your life every day, whether it be a new class, meeting a friend of a friend or passing by someone you used to know. In normal life it isn’t always that easy to meet new people, so the individuals that come into your life later on seem to have more of an impact. I have come to realize that its not so important how long someone is in your life, but if they have made you realize something new. Either about yourself or the world around you, and it doesn’t have to be anything philosophical or life changing. I have been meditating a lot recently, and my most recent meditation really helped to clarify this for me. That some people are just not meant to be in your life forever, but hopefully they were there for a reason, and to those who do stick around for a lifetime, the lessons that were learned from the people along the way hopefully will benefit those in the future.
