Sometimes people come into your life and you realize that they are there for some purpose- to teach you a lesson, or to help you to know who you are or who you want to become. You’d never who these people may be. They will deeply affect your life in some ways. Sometimes things happen to you that may seem unfair, painful and horrible at first, but later, you realize that without overcoming those difficulties you would never know your strength, willpower or potential. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, great achievement, love, injury and failure all come to test the limits of your soul. Without these tests life would be like a straight and flat road, but it goes nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and completely meaningless.

Those people who affect your life, and the failure and the success you experience can help you to create who you are and who you become. Even the bad experience can be learned from. In fact, they are the most important ones. If someones breaks your heart, or hurts you, please forgive them, for they helped you to learn about the importance of being careful when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back, because they are teaching you how to open your heart.
