Do you feel that the people in your life are there for a purpose?

I think most people realize that we cannot live alone. Not only are others dependent upon us but we are also dependent upon them - in every phase of our experience. I feel that there is a purpose for every life and no one comes into our life by chance. There are certainly times when we would hate to admit this, yet we can learn something from everyone and they in turn can learn from us. How do you feel about this? Do you think that you learn from everyone that you has come into your life?

I think the point of life is to learn important lessons and the people in our lives help us. We also have these relationships to balance out previous karma. I feel that this is a really good thing, and reminds me not to get all anxious when things go wrong. It's all a learning curve, and I hope I've learned something from everyone that I have met in my life.

Hi creative, Thank you for sharing your thoughts and we agree. We learn from each other and sometimes a person will come into our lives who will teach us a lot about ourselves. Let's be thankful for everyone we've met, there was a reason. Blessings.

It's very hard to live alone. We built a society because our chances of survival are greater if we work together. But I don't really feel anything about people being in my life for a purpose or not. All I know is that I learned a lot from people who became a part of my life no matter how big or small their part is.

Hi angelajoy, Thank you for commenting and if you've learned from others, no doubt they have learned from you. Isn't that a purpose? Blessings.

I think you do learn something from everybody that has ever come into your life. I think for some people, you realize who you really want to be around and who you want in your life. While with other people, you learn who you don't want in your life. I think meeting people is what makes your life the way it is.

All things in life have purpose, if not they would not be in your life. People are many times just a brief influence, but just that short glimpes touches you in some way, if this were no so you would never be awaire of their existance.

Hi Pose123..... Yeah no one can life alone in this world, we will need our fellow human. I have meet so many kind of people in my life, I find a very loving and caring people who now become my best friend. I find few mean people who always criticize my life but its help more stronger than before. I personally think every body we meet in this life shape us somehow, we admit it or not.

Well for me, I would not mind it. Whether if its fate or not. I'm always open for people who is also open to me. I like to learn new stuff. Especially coming to different people. Who knows, maybe they are right in some way even you found them so annoying. Just be glad for those person you have learned.

I think that life is always a learning experience ,and there are people in this world that are in our lives for a reason, season, or forever.

Well, you certainly get something from all the people that is in your life. I also believe that there is a purpose why a certain person is in your life however briefly he/she is there. In addition, I believe that these people help shape us into what we are right now. Some of their beliefs, manner, habits, these rub off to us and we copy or modify so that we can apply it in ourselves. Thus, we should also be careful on how we act towards others. Because just as they have an effect on us in some way, our individual self would have an effect on each person that we meet.

Nothing comes into our lives by Luck, Happenstance, or Accident, as these things do not exist! It's all about the Grand Design! Our mission here is not to Learn, but to Experience. People in Hypnotic Trance can Answer any question. The Answers are easy, but the Questions are infinitely difficult, and must be Experienced! In each lifetime, we get to choose our Family, Friends, Interests, and Limitations. "In our sad condition our only consolation is the expectancy of Another Life. Here below all is Incomprehensible." ~ Martin Luther ~
