My article is about my view on the purpose of relationships. In this article, I will be referring to relationships of all kinds; friendships, marriages, romantic relationships, common-law, parent-child relationships, family relationships, relationships with animals, etc. When two people get married, they are expected to last forever. When two people are dating, there is an expectation that the relationship "should" go further than where it is currently. When family relationships end, either by conflict or death, or any other reason, we think that things should not happen the way that they did. Either way, when relationships ends due to a breakup, a death, or a conflict of some sort, we view it as a tragedy, a terrible, negative occurrence.
I believe that all life experiences are divinely set in perfect order and are exactly how they were pre planned to be. I believe that we come on this earth with a pre set plan on how life will be like and who we will meet. Every relationship is here to teach us something about ourselves and help us evolve and grow. No person that we meet is in our presence by accident, even if they are there for a second. Even though society has taught us that a romantic relationship "should" evolve to something more, I believe that that is not the purpose. Even though people get married to spend the rest of their lives together, and the promise of marriage is to stay together, the true purpose of that relationship is the lessons that both partners get from the other to help them grow and mature. If a baby suddenly passes away, as heartbreaking as it is, the true purpose of that child being on earth was to show people that they were in relationship with, lessons to help them evolve.
There is no set journey that a relationship is "supposed" to take. Each relationship has it's unique journey and no outcome is right or wrong. The purpose of why we have relationships on earth is to experience all human emotions, and to allow every experience to elevate us in our growth. When a marriage is ending and on the verge for divorce, yes it may be heartbreaking, however due to divine plan, that is the way it is exactly meant to be. There is no right or wrong way in which a relationship ends up, but it is only our expectations and perceptions of how we view relationships that determines how we experience them. Every relationship we have, is here for our benefit and to trigger us to pay more attention to our hearts. There is no right or wrong path for a relationship. Every encounter is purposeful and for our benefit whether we see it or not.
