There is a saying… “People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.”
Several years back, I studied Kabbalah. One of the things I learned was a theory that went something like this, “if someone in your life has not made an impact– either positive or negative– in any six-month period, it’s time to let them go.” Now, this doesn’t mean call them up and say, “I’m done with you!” No, it would be as simple as just not wasting any more energy on them.
Have you ever had a friend that was only there when you called them? One that never picked up the phone or a pen or a keyboard to contact you? I’m sure we all have… but how did you handle it? Did you expend valuable time, energy and emotion in an attempt to include them in your life? Or did you take a deep breath and let them go?
The above quote, “People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime,” was pretty powerful to me. If someone comes into your life, learn from them, enjoy their company and take whatever lessons you can— while giving the same experience to them. This way, whether they’re there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, you’ll never have any regrets.
Have a good one.
