Every person we meet has come into our life to teach us something.
Too often when we meet someone, we’re concerned with telling them who we are or what our story is. Rather than look at what we can learn from someone, we feel like we should be the one teaching.
The truth is that every person we meet has something they can teach us. Whether someone is older, younger, richer, poorer – the differences between us truly don’t matter. When you’re standing in a long line and encounter a cranky person or when you meet someone who frustrates you, they, too, have something they can teach you. Be open to the possibility that each person you meet has crossed your path for a reason.
Reflection of the Week: Are you open to the possibility that everyone you meet has something valuable they can teach you? Do you feel you are ready to learn that lesson?
