Hmm.. Do you believe everything happens for a reason? Well, I do.
Read this beautiful article, which I found by an unknown author (Kindly inform, if you know).
Every so often people come into your life and you know straight away that they were meant to be there; they serve some sort of purpose, teach you something or help you shape out who you are or who you want to turn into.
You never know who these special people may be; your neighbour, your work colleague, professor, school friend, or even a complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
And occasionally things happen to you and at the time they seem hideous, hurtful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming these obstacles you would never have realized your true potential, strength, will power of the heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, bereavement, lost moments or true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of the soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smooth paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable, but monotonous and utterly meaningless.
The people you meet who shape your life and accomplishments and downfalls you experience, they are the ones who define who you are. Even the bad experience can be learned from... These lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones.
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart...forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.
If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because you want to. These people are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.
Make every day matter. Be grateful for every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.
Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it.
To be alive is not living, you produce this, so make it happen and make a new friend today!
Well... Yes, I do believe that the people I've met throughout my life so far served some sort of purpose. There must be a reason why God let us meet each other. Like the author said, nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck.
Hence, be grateful for every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.
So.. whatever it is;
Whatever happens in your life, does happen for a reason!
I wish you all the best in your endeavors as well as struggles in life. Have a fighting spirit and never hesitate to get back in the struggle!
