Throughout our lives, we will have many different relationships. Some of these are only for a short time, while others can last a lifetime. Sometimes, we may need to consider a relationship’s purpose. Was it part of our lives for a reason, for a season, or for a lifetime? Having had three serious romantic relationships as a young adult, I feel that each of them fell into one of these purposes.
It seems that throughout various stages of my life, this question always seems to come up. Is it destiny that guides us through life, or is it our choices that determine the course of our lives. The philosophic debate between fate or free will has been on going as long as man has existed.
Throughout our lives, we walk in and out of many relationships. Some relationships only last for a season. Others last a lifetime. With all of these relationships, we are capable of hurting the people that we care about. If left unresolved, the pain that we cause can create an emotional deficit in our lives.
Through out our lives our paths cross the paths of many different people. While some people pass through others lives relatively unnoticed, there are those highly connected people that seem to impact every life that they cross.
