I have often wondered whether our encounters with people through life are predestined, meant to happen.
Sometimes we might meet certain people to learn some lessons and evolve, grow spiritually. On some other occasions we might be of help to them -guidance, support-. Finally, in some of these encounters it’s simply God wishing to encourage us with that company, “rewarding” us with that Beauty to enlighten our existence and to “show” us a bit of Paradise on Earth.
It is convenient to identify what type of encounter it is so that we can realize our mission softly in each situation, without forcing, feeling frustrated or confused.
Another important aspect is acceptance. Some people are not to stay with us for long. They only come for a reason or purpose and then they leave. We should be grateful for the experience we have lived and do not show resistance -pain- when they are gone!
