If someone is standing right in front of you, they are there for a reason. That relationship has something to teach you or contribute to you. But it may not be what you are expecting or hoping for.
We tend to label relationships before we understand their purpose in our lives.
Not every relationship is meant to be in your life forever, but it is meant to be in your life for a purpose.
Not every love relationship leads to marriage. Some guarantee heartache so you can learn what real love doesn’t look like.
Not every business partnership leads to success. Some ensure failure so you’ll understand how to become successful on your own.
Not every friendship leads to lifetime loyalty. Some encourage betrayal so you’ll learn to trust yourself and rely on your own inner power.
Not every employee respects your power. Some challenge it so you can learn to step fully into that power and own it.
Not every team player supports your team’s initiatives. Some push back on them so you can learn to evolve those initiatives in a stronger way.
Relationships may not always give you what you want; but they’ll always give you what they came to give.
Every relationship is purposeful; your only job is to identify the purpose and let it off the hook for everything else.
