I feel like there’s a lot of people we come across in life, that don’t realise they have an impact on us. Whether it’s what they say, or what they do, sometimes certain people leave a mark on you. Some of these people might not even give me another fleeing thought, which is why I think it’s interesting that they’ve taught me a valuable life lesson.
My high school maths teacher taught me that it doesn’t matter how stupid the question is that you ask, so long as you learn from the answer.
My boss from my first full time job taught me that it’s okay to stand your ground.
My primary school friends taught me that no matter how nice you are to someone, it doesn’t mean they will be nice to you.
The boy that broke my heart taught me that being sad doesn’t last forever.
My first boyfriend taught me that some things just don’t work out, and that’s okay.
My sister taught me that there will always be someone there when you need them the most.
My high school friends taught me that no matter who you are, there are people in the world that are just like you, and understand you without judgement.
People I was in University group projects with taught me that not everyone is reliable.
My finance taught me that it’s okay to accept my flaws and love myself the way I am.
The girl I sat next to at my first job, taught me that there is value in being confident and content in your beliefs.
