Reason, Season or Lifetime

Throughout our lives, we encounter people that play an instrumental role in our development.

Our reason people serve a specific purpose. Once they fulfill that purpose, they will depart.

Our season people complement you during a certain period of your life. After you grow out of this period, they no longer enrich you.

Our lifetime people are there for the long haul, and you ride it out until the end.

When we think of someone being there for a lifetime, our parents, siblings, and relatives quickly come to mind.

Our friends, acquaintances, and companions develop later in our journey.

At some point, all of these individuals will depart and leave us with nothing but memories.

We must strive to understand the role each person plays and the lessons to be gained from it.
