Every relationship you are in has a purpose.
Whether it is an intimate love relationship of husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend…
The relationship between siblings, cousins and friends…
The relationship you have with your workmates, the people you gather with to drink coffee, play sports, meditate or do crafts with…
The relationships you have big or small with the clerk at the grocery store, the man who issues you your lottery ticket, the ticket taker at the parking garage all have a purpose…
Every relationship has a purpose.
Yes some are deeper then others.
Some are longer then others.
Some involve conflict and others involve love, affection and camaraderie.
When you begin to see everyone moving in and out of your life,whether they bring joy or a scowl to your face, as a relationship with a purpose, then you begin to see the magic of life. You begin to see how everyone and everything is connected. You begin to see that nothing is by chance and that everything has a purpose.
Including every relationship you have ever had and will have in the future.
Each relationship provides you with an opportunity to heal old wounds, learn about forgiveness, propel you forward in your own growth; bring joy and love into the world.
Bless those relationships. Be grateful for them even the trying ones for they teach you the most.
Be okay with releasing relationships when their time has come to end.
Every relationship has a purpose. Place this belief on the filters of your eyes and you will begin to see everyone and the world around you in a whole new way.

i’ve been thinking a lot about relationships lately. particularly the ones with people i don’t see often, and it seems like i am always the one reaching out first, keeping the connection alive. sometimes i’ve considered dropping some, but can’t. i struggle with the thought of “you will make an effort if you really want to” versus people who are good people, but they get so wrapped up in their daily lives, and they always ‘mean to get in touch’ but they don’t. whether they don’t make the effort because i am not important enough to them, or they are truly the same with everyone and would regret the loss of our friendship if i did cut them off. i’m not trying to keep tabs on the give and take of a friendship, but it can be emotionally tiring to do all the giving sometimes. at the end of it, i’m never sure what I’m supposed to learn…
Thank you for your honest words Priscilla. If I may put on my therapist’s hat for a moment, it sounds like you are dealing with limiting core beliefs of self worth, feeling not good enough, unwanted and perhaps even abandoned. There is something there which is preventing you from accepting these relationships as is or letting go and moving on. Helping people get to the core and make change at the level of belief is my speciality. Here’s some information for you. http://www.changefromwithin.ca
I remember reading an email that went around that stated everyone was here for a reason, season or a lifetime but there is always a purpose whether it’s positive or not, it’s relevant.
Yes you got it Stella.
Thank You Esther, this is exactly what I needed to be reminded of at this time in my life. I think sometimes you have to step back (as an observer) to realize if you have fulfilled the purpose of the relationship. It’s not always clear cut but remembering these thoughts and ideas may help get through some of the rough times.
Laurie it is so nice how Universe brings us these little reminders at the right time.
What a wonderful way to look at every interaction with each person every day. This helps me recognize how many relationships one has had, will have, and will continue to have and to learn from each one.
helping in the process of letting go of relationships that no longer serve!!!!
I’m really beginning to notice the synchronicity in life and this article is no exception. Reading it today (when it’s been sitting in my inbox for a few days) tells me I have some work to in my relationships and the time to do it is now. I’m paying attention to which relationships “bring a smile to my face” and which ones “bring a scowl. Either way, they both have a purpose in my life, right?
Right! keep going and keep me posted…
The idea of releasing relationships has always come hard to me. Sometimes because I think I could have put more into it or because it has come to mean alot to me even though for all intents and purposes the relationip’s time has past. This gives me encouragement and courage to end things when their time has past.
It’s good that you have grown in awarenss to come to this point. keep going
I have really realized in the past few years how releasing relationships that are no longer working has helped me to move forward on my path. Difficult to do, but the rewards are worth it.
