6 Reasons We Don’t Meet People By Accident. We Meet For A Reason.

We Don't Meet People By Accident People Come Into Your Life For A Reason I believe you don’t meet people by accident – they come into your life for a reason.

Yes, even the crummy ones.

If a relationship doesn’t survive the test of time, it doesn’t mean it still wasn’t meant to be.

Not all encounters with people are supposed to last forever. 

Sometimes the “forever” is not the person – but what we gain from them.

There’s a synchronicity and purpose for each person you meet . Both our positive encounters with people and the negative, challenging encounters we suffer through.

Below are some insightful reasons why we don’t meet people by accident. And why you might randomly meet people again.

We meet people for a reason.

6 Reasons Why We Don’t Meet People By Accident. People Come Into Your Life For A Reason.

1. Some people are “bridges.”

These people are not meant to last for the long road ahead. They are an enjoyable pathway to get us to where we need to go.

These people are needed to arrive exactly at the time and place you met them – to transport you to the next level of your life journey.

You meet these people for a reason – even if they are only here for a season.

2. Some people are “roadblocks” and “re-directors.”

These people come into your life to delay you – for both little things and big things.

For example, you might have a conversation with someone – which then delays you and prevents you from getting into a bus accident.

Or you might spend time with someone – and this time spent creates a “time hiccup” which delays you – so you wind up meeting a new, amazing, romantic partner.

You might have heard the expression, “Sometimes rejection is a redirection to something better.” Well, that’s what these people do. They might show up as a rejector – but they are a redirector.

3. Some people are “assignments” and “teachers.”

Often your tormentors double duty as your mentors.

They are here to teach you important life lessons – via the process of pain – which helps you to grow who you are.

Their “crisis pain” creates the “crisis fuel” you need – to motivate a necessary change you didn’t want to put in the effort to make.

Plus, some people are just straight-up inspiring teachers – who teach you life lessons in a more loving manner.

4. Some people are “angels”

Thankfully, some people are angels.

These people are here to protect you and remind you to stay safe and stay self loving.

They are “guardian angels” of some sort.

Their purpose: Make sure that you do not stray too far from the path you are meant to be on.

In times of need and desperation they help you – when others are not there for you.

People Come Into Your Life For A Reason5. Some people are “guideposts.”

They represent and symbolize something you want.

Their purpose: Motivate you to keep pursuing what you want – and stay on track.

Their presence helps to make sure you stay awake, energized and committed to moving forward on your soul’s true-to-you journey.

6. Some people are your “tribe.”

These are the ones who are here to stay the long haul.

These people are far and few between – but they are the ones who are loyally there for you during tough times and celebratory times.

They see you clearly and accept you as your “flawesome” self.

Tribe members support you when you are invisible to others.

Tribe members root for you with a pure heart – when others might feel competitive or jealous.

I absolutely agree! Good people and sometimes bad as well. Hard lessons and great memories can result.


I believe in the meeting theory, that’s why even when crossings end badly I tell myself there must be one positive thing, habit, lesson or truth that came out of the interaction. Invariably I find it, keep it, remember it when needed and move on to the next meeting.

I’m still trying to understand why I met a certain man right when I’d broken up with another, who died a year later. I ended up seeing this certain single man for 2 1/2 years, and it was so great when we were together, but then just as quickly as it started, he retired from the military and moved away to another state, to his home town. It’s now been a year, and my heart’s been healing, and even though I knew he was going to leave and that he isn’t “the one” (although I’d hoped), I had bonded so strongly that I still miss him so much. He’s moved on. I don’t hear from him anymore, but I still think about him everyday and night. I did learn and grow a lot from the experience, and I am grateful. I just want to really be over him, so I can be free to meet someone new. I just can’t seem to get him out of my mind and stop my heart from missing him. It’s like a constant feeling of heartbreak…Hopefully someday I will understand exactly why we were brought into each other’s lives.
