Sometimes, a break-up is a blessing.
Have you ever been in a relationship where you felt so deeply about the person and could not imagine being without them? The two of you were probably wearing matching outfits or colors, sitting next to each other in a restaurant booth, or talking on the phone until one of you said, “1,2,3…hang up”. You were in like. You were in love. But then you two broke up for whatever reason. You got really sad. Cried your eyes out. Probably couldn’t eat or sleep. But then you started to feel better over time. You got over it. You moved on. You let it go. You learned from the situation. Eventually, you LAUGHED about the situation. You thought to yourself, “what was I thinking?…I’m GLAD that didn’t work out!” You learned your worth. You realized what you would not tolerate in your next relationship. You eventually fell in love with the person you were meant to be with. The breakup was just a blessing in disguise.
Sometimes, losing your job is a blessing.
Have you ever worked your butt off for a company? You gave your all. Thought you would grow with the company. Offered help in every way possible. But then you got fired or laid off. Possibly looked at yourself as a failure. Possibly thought you weren’t good enough. Started to think, “What am I going to do now?” But then you started to realize how much free time you had. Instead of moping around you decided to take advantage of that time. You decided to start your own business. You decided to turn that hobby into a career. Or you finally got a position at the company you’ve been wanting to work for. Then you LAUGHED because you remember how sad you became after losing your job. You realized your loss became a gain. You got over it. You moved on. You let it go. You became a successful business owner or a professional at a company that appreciates your efforts. The job loss was a blessing in disguise.
Sometimes, ending a friendship is a blessing.
Have you ever had a friend who you thought would be your friend forever? You two shared secrets, dreams, memories, laughs, tears. You two were tight like glue. But then the friendship ended for whatever reason. Maybe that “friend” was always negative or rarely supported your dreams. But, overtime, you realize you’re better off without that friend. You got over it. You moved on. You let it go. Now you have a circle of positive, like-minded friends. Now you have people who encourage you and believe in you. Losing that friendship was a blessing in disguise.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the quote, “People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime”… It’s true. God removes you from certain people so you could step back, take a look and realize your time is too valuable to waste on that friendship or relationship. God removes you from that job so you could realize that you are just too GREAT to work for that company. But I get it. It’s hard to see things clearly when you’re in the situation. Life throws curve balls. Sometimes you’re up. Sometimes you’re down. But again, like I always say, every situation, good or bad, is temporary. You might not understand things now, but everything WILL make sense in the future. You’ll then say, “Ohhhh, now I get it.” It’s always a blessing in disguise.
