Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there.
To serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help your figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be.
A roommate, a neighbour, a professor, a friend, a lover.
But when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.
Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first,but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles, you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.
Ilness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.
Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere.
It would be safe & comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet
who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become.
Even the bad experiences can be learned from.
In fact, they are sometimes the most important ones, if someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about TRUST.
If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally.
Not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love.
