There’s A Purpose For Everyone You Meet – They’re Either A Lesson Or A Blessing


You may deny it all you want, but everything in this life has a purpose for existing. 

The unpredictable changes we experience are there to teach us that we can’t control everything and the people with whom we cross our paths are there to help us learn some of the most valuable lessons about life. Everything is a part of a certain chain reaction.

So, even though you regret wasting your best years on a worthless relationship, you need to realize that the experience you went through may have hurt you, but it also changed you and created the person you are today.

You wouldn’t have been where you are right now if it weren’t for that relationship or that particular person.

People say every cloud has a silver lining. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

I truly believe that no matter how hard and challenging life sometimes gets, there’s always something good in every negative situation.

We all have different lens types and frames. Every color or shape depends on your own way of thinking. Who you are is what you see.

But, let’s get back to the people who come into our lives and the purpose for their arrival.

Each person that we meet on our journey plays a specific role in our life. Even the ones who look like they’re only passing by. But, especially those who made us suffer, shattered our dreams and changed our lives.

People who come into our life are there for a reason. Whether they’re our friends, boyfriends, colleagues, workmates, they serve as connections or stepping stones that help us grow and evolve.

Nothing that happens to us is by mistake.

Even the toxic people who come into our lives have a certain purpose for their arrival. You can deny it all you want, you can say that you regret the day you met a certain someone, but the truth is, in the long run, every single one of these encounters will help you find yourself and be the person you truly aspire to be.

There are different cosmic reasons for every human being who is a part of our life.

Some of them are sent to encourage us, help us find our inner voice and prepare us for the difficult challenges in life. Some of them stay by our side, and some of them are simply messengers. They come and then in a blink of an eye, they’re gone.

Some of the people in our life, on the other hand, are sent to do the complete opposite. They exist to demolish everything we have and everything we created for ourselves. And even though, these are the people who usually scar us for life, they are also the ones responsible for helping us rise up from the ashes. They are the painful change in our life, the influence we hate to admit because they’re the reason for our growth.

And then, there are those who arrive when we least expect and bring us back every hope we’ve ever lost. The people who help us regain the faith in true love. The beautiful human beings who help us learn that true love exists, even though it’s rare. Their impact on our life is truly significant because they are our light in the darkness.  

So, the next time you regret some of your past experiences, try to remember that it happened for a reason. The decision you made at that moment was right. The person you let into your life had a purpose. The relationship you’ve been through was just another lesson.

There’s a purpose for everyone you meet. Either they’re a lesson or a blessing.
