Lesson 3: everyone we meet has something to teach us

Whilst traveling I met a lot of people from different corners of the world. They all come from different cultures with different mentalities. 

Some of these people we may only meet once and others might stick around. But one thing is for sure, they all have something to teach is if you are willing to listen. 

I met one of my good friends through my work. She is from the Netherlands and I remember the first day I met her like yesterday. I hadn’t maybe even spoken 10 sentences to her and she pulled me aside and said “just let go, what would it cost you to let go for just  one moment?”. 

I looked at her for several seconds and asked myself why she just said that to me, its then when I realised that she saw more than anyone that was currently in my life. 

She taught me not to sweat the small stuff and just be more “happy-go-lucky” in a sense.  Even without knowing her that well she was able to teach me a valuable lesson. 

Without even noticing people teach us a lot. For instance guests that give me constant issues to solve at work teach me patience. People that are mean teach me kindness etc. 

Only when we are able to look at a situation from an outside perspective can we realise that there is always a lesson for us there. 

People are sent into our lives to teach us things we need to learn about ourselves.
