All these three types have its own role to play in our lives. They all have to offer something very valuable to us. We need to realize & believe that. And we have to be very careful on whom we keep close to our heart and whom we let go.
For some that have been in my life a short time have made some great impacts (teaching me both good and bad lessons) ~ Anna Pereira
Have you every had a person who you wanted for a Lifetime – but they were more interested in being there for a Reason – that turned into a very long Season – which they expected to last a Lifetime – but then you realized you did not want them to extend it into a Lifetime? The letting go is harder than you think – it is like a divorce – questioning what happened – exactly when did things start going downhill – did the person really ever like you for you are what you gave them – or more imporatantly what they got from you without giving back. ~ Mel Weaver
I had good number of friends in the first and second category. Only a couple of friends including myself in the third category. Now atleast that awareness I consider as a blessing. When we face adversities in life the only we know our real friends including our close relatives. ~ Chenicheri Ramachandran
