Everyone is my teacher.

“Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude.”

Even the harshest of situations I’ve lived through have taught me valuable lessons.

What can we learn from the harshest situations?

I’ve learned not to blindly trust, that trust needs to be earned. Just because someone claims to be trustworthy, doesn’t meant that’s true! They may be lying, or simply unaware of their own personal reality.

I’ve learned to keep my values and boundaries intact, not to allow someone else to degrade them, to minimize them or to bypass them! This leads me to my next point:

I’ve learned that seeking love and approval isn’t worth diminishing my values or boundaries! I never gained the love or approval I was seeking and only lost my own self-respect, as well as the respect of the person I was seeking it from!

I’ve learned that when I hold true to myself and my inner values that I gain the respect of people I value; and I’ve learned that the people who wish to manipulate or con me, get revealed pretty quickly when I stand firm.

I’ve learned that I don’t need to keep toxic or unhealthy relationships in my life in the name of loyalty, after all how loyal is someone to me who chooses to hurt or abuse me?

Yes, those lessons were hard-won but they’ve become the new foundation I built my life on and they inform all of my relationships now!

Are you still struggling with the experiences you’re going through?

Try imagining the lessons your soul is learning by going through this hard time, which actually may help you to make the decisions you need to make in order to successfully pass through!

I know this sounds a little like pretzel logic, but many times we allow ourselves to remain in abusive or toxic situations, because we’re frozen by uncertainty or fear or by the thought that we may have the power to affect the other person to change.

Sending you good thoughts to help you on your personal journey! Blessings to you!
