We don't always meet the people we want but who we may need. Meeting someone isn't always for the purpose of happily ever after. Meeting someone may be needed for: friendship, physical or emotional connection, advice, a chance to be heard, to be given an opportunity, to learn a lesson, to give a lesson, to be freed from a toxic relationship, to realize you are sabotaging your relationships or family, that you deserve better, that you are enough, that you can be independent, or that you are a Survivor. When meeting individuals,it is not always a want because the benefits/gifts aren't instantaneously seen or received. Yet sometimes meeting someone isn't for our gain at all, but for the person you are meeting; in this case "tis better to give than it is to receive". So,the next time you meet someone, pause and think,how is it that can Igrow/improve from you? Or is it the opposite,is there something I can offer to you,to help you grow/improve?
