Are you aware that everyone around you is your teacher? and that you are theirs?
I try not to look at anything or anyone as trivial, even children.
There is wisdom in all things, especially if it helps you grow.
Sometimes you meet people who are just assholes and you may say that to yourself, but what if you said instead, I can learn ____ from this person.
One of the hardest lessons that you will learn is usually taught to you by someone you think is an asshole!
Don't believe me? I'll tell you what is usually being shown to you through them,
Self Love and or Self Respect..
You see eventually you will tire from the disrespect, and you will no longer be able to tolerate the sheer ill treatment and Voila! their job is done once you stand up for yourself..
I know that you may doubt this, but one day ask yourself, "What did I learn from that asshole?"
and guaranteed you will see it, and when you do
in your head just say "Thank you", for the growth :D
