'Experience is the Best Teacher'- I had heard this phrase in school. As years passed it seemed true. I learnt so much from my experiences, don't we all?? Particularly bad experiences teach you more than good ones. Lessons learnt the hard way are the ones which get etched in our memory forever. And are my personal favorites.
I transitioned over a period of time, voluntarily with self efforts from a introvert, in-secured, low self esteem kid to a confident young girl. Like most of us eventually turn out, right! Now the same phrase about experiences had a different meaning. Initially I learnt from my own sufferings and experiences but now I learnt much more from others experiences. I don't mean I became nosy and kept questioning people about their personal life, I just became more observant and saw beyond just looking. It helped me understand my needs and expectations from life.
I would like to say if you have a open mind and are sensitive enough to notice what is really really going around you it teaches you more than anything else could ever. You or your close ones don't really have to go through bad experiences from which you take your lessons. You neither have to over analyze every situation nor become judge-mental about people. You just have to see what you are looking at, See into Life, don't just Look!
I love being surrounded by all kinds of people, literally all. It includes people I love, like, hate, don't like, understand, don't understand, relate-to or not. Because there is so much to learn from just human behavior, it amuses me. Everyone or most of them have some amazing quality, each ordinary individual is extraordinary in his/her unique way. Its just up to us, our inner self to filter out what we don't like and absorb what we do !
