We cross path with thousands of people throughout our lives. Most are good, and we’re better because we’ve known them.
Then, there are those who turn our lives upside down. They’re negative, mean spirited, they may be unsupportive, narcissistic, angry, dishonest, disrespectful or cold hearted. They may reject us, judge us, use or abused us. They challenge our resilience, patience, courage, strength and our sense of self.
But, these people are important.
They help us establish the set-point for our own moral compass and help us unearth who and “how” we want to be.
By observing the impact their actions, behaviours and attitudes have on the people and world around them, we acquire some of our greatest learning.
They’re not always bad people, they are however, really good “bad” teachers.
Despite what these discontented souls portray on the surface, their life path is often hard and heavy.
Move past these “good bad teachers” with your heart open and filled with gratitude knowing you are stronger, better and wiser because of the lessons they’ve given you.
Everyones a teacher. The ones who teach us how “not to be” Hmmm, pay attention, they sometimes provide the greatest lessons of all.
