Some people come into your life for only a season, but for the most important reasons.
We will never fully understand why some people come into our lives and why some people leave. Sometimes, the people that we wanted to stay with with every ounce of our being leave. Those are the moments that hurt the most, the ones that make us feel betrayed and alone.
But sometimes those people are only supposed to be in your life for a season or even just a moment, to help give you a life lesson that you needed, and to help you to grow. I know it may not seem like that now, but every romantic, friend or family relationship that is no longer, has given you a valuable life lesson.
I remember January 2017. When I first felt something towards someone again, when I was beginning to believe that maybe love did exist for me. It ended up being a train wreck of a relationship at the end, but it taught me a valuable lesson, that I was worthy of love, and more importantly, that I was worthy of loving myself. In the moment, I was so upset that I had tried and failed again, that I couldn’t see the lesson, but now it is clear as day. That relationship was given to me, to be able to learn that there was overflowing and accepting love out there for me, and allowed me to fully embrace the love I do have today with a beautiful husband.
I know it might not always feel like it, but everything is falling into place for you. I know you may miss someone in your life, but try to ask yourself what lesson life was giving you, or how that situation helped you to grow, or how it helped you to accept and love yourself more. Some people come to us and stay for a lifetime, those people are there to help us shine our beauty consistently. Others come and go, and they are often there to help remind us of our worth. They are there as reminders, that life can go on. Even when our heart aches for the past, we can be reminded of our worth, we can feel good about ourselves, and we can continuously move forward.
We might not always understand why or how or when, but we can remind ourselves that we are exactly where we are supposed to be. We can remind ourselves that even though some of the people we wanted to stay, didn’t, that each situation is a life lesson, to grow in strength, to grow in self-love, and to grow in recognition of your worth.
Wherever you are, whatever you are experiencing, whoever you are missing – it is okay. Have trust in the universe. Keep going, you will end up exactly where you are supposed to be, and likely, in a space better than you imagined.
