Every Person You Meet Has a Purpose in Your Life – They’re Either A Lesson Or A Blessing

every person you meet has a purpose in your life

There is no ultimate logic or sense to anything in life if there was no God. There would be nothing –no cause, no sense, no logic, no reason, and no purpose in life. Life would be a random occurrence.  

There cannot be a reason beyond purpose, as purpose is what motivates reason. Reason is the cause of an event, while purpose is the reason something is created or exists. Every person you meet has a purpose in your life!

Everything which exists has a cause behind its existence, therefore, a reason and a purpose for that existence. 

Purpose and reason cannot exist one without the other.

Purpose is the cause of reason.

Imagine I walked into a diner, who led me there? My purpose, of course. But what is my purpose behind walking into a diner? My reason, right?

Most likely I am hungry, which led me to go inside. Motivation ties purpose and action in one. Nothing would exist without purpose. No organization, institution, or relationship.

What Motivates The Purpose Of All Things?

Everything has an origin, a beginning, so what is the stem of our purpose? 


Every purpose has a will behind it, and it exists because there is God.

 If there is no God, who would be behind the reason and purpose of all things? If God doesn’t exist, are we the creators and parents of reason and purpose? 

Is everyone and everything just one big meaningless occurrence of events, a jumbled puzzle, a line without order in a haphazard world born out of stardust?

The Theory of Evolution claims that there is no reason and purpose to anything, and, therefore, no God. Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution believes in natural selection, i.e., survival of the fittest, that life is chaos, with no real reason or purpose for anything.

This can be rather encouraging. If there is no purpose to life, if there is no real reason why things are happening and no correlation between them, then we are free to design our own future, our own experiences.

We are free to explore and enjoy life the way because we are the creators of OUR life. No need to wait for someone to tell us what the next step is or what the next action we should take.

Even though there is some freedom in embracing a chaotic world, I personally have never found it plausible. To me, there is God, and God gives us the motivation, the purpose, the reason.

He helps us realize our dreams and fight for them, He helps us learn, He makes us stronger, more resilient. He teaches us and gives meaning to our existence. Most importantly, he gives us faith, and without faith, there would be absolute chaos and despair.

I refuse to believe in such a world. I believe in the light that’s God-given, and 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 in 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.

The Road To Self Discovery: Who You Are Is What You See

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. 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.

Every person you meet has a purpose in your life.

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.

Have you ever heard the phrase, easy come, easy go? I bet you did.

Don’t be afraid to let go of someone just because they meant so much to you.

Some people were never meant for us. They were never our destiny. That’s fine, it doesn’t stop them from being our lesson, right? Some people are there to test you or teach you, or tempt you – that’s how you’ll learn about yourself.

You’ll learn more through your lessons than through your blessings, so never shut the door to knowledge. It’s that inner knowledge that helps us dive into our deepest corners of the soul and realize all the bits and pieces we’ve buried subconsciously that either make us or break us.

Life is a game of chess. A movie in which every figurine, every actor has a role to play.

You can’t control the game of chess neither can you predict the movie’s ending. That’s because you are not the only player in the game nor are you the movie’s director. What you can influence though, is your reactions.

And then, out of nowhere, you will realize that 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 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.

Every person you meet has a purpose in your life. Either they’re a lesson or a blessing.
