The older I’m getting, the more I realize that even after graduating from college, we never stop being students. We are forever growing and learning from this school called Life. There are still so many lessons that we must learn that we can only learn through either other people or our experiences and unless we master and learn those lessons, we’ll just keep repeating that class, over and over again until we learn.
How many of you have been through the same pain, over and over again? I know I have and for certain things, still do. Have you ever wondered why you keep going through the same thing over and over again just with different people? When faced with situations like these, ask yourself, what is the lesson behind what is happening? Is there something that you are meant to be learning that you are missing? In what way can you grow and become a better person because of this experience or person? If this person caused (or what you perceived that this person caused you) a very emotional response in you, the lesson is even more important and profound. It is actually more essential for you to find out what this lesson is so that you can move on and be a better version of yourself.
I’m truly a believer that if you allow yourself, every person and experience can mold you and shape you into a better version of you the way that you are meant to be. No experience needs to knock you down to the point of not being able to get up. On the contrary, the experiences that provoke the highest and strongest emotions for you can be what provides a turning point in your life towards a better direction.
Indeed the world is a school where everyone you meet and your experiences are your teachers and it is best for your overall well-being that you become open to those lessons and willing to being a better version of yourself.
