This life is so beautiful that one might at times wish to possess all the good things in it. However, at times life might seem frustrating and difficult. It is only through these lessons that we learn the true lessons of life.
It brightens our knowledge about people and relationship, as each person that enters our life has a unique lesson to teach us.
When someone lies to you, it teaches you that things are not always what they seem to be. The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look beyond the mask people wear, and if you really want to know what is in their hearts, remove your own mask to let people know who you really are.
When someone steals from you, it teaches you that nothing is forever, always appreciate what you have, you never know when you might lose it, never take your friend or family for granted.
When someone inflicts injury on you, it teaches you that the human state is a very fragile one, always protect and take care of yourself as best as you can.
When someone harbours any grudge against you, it teaches you that everyone make mistakes, when you are wronged, the most virtuous thing you can do is to forgive the offender without pretence. Forgiving those who might have hurt us in one way or the other is often the most difficult and the challenging task of life’s experience, but it is also the most courageous thing a person can do.
When someone mocks you, it teaches you that no two people are alike, when you encounter others, do not judge them based on their physical appearance.
When someone ridicules you, it teaches you that nobody is perfect, accept people for their merits and be tolerant of their flaws. Don’t ever reject someone for imperfection for which they have no control.
When someone cheats you, it teaches you that greed is the root of evil, aspire to make your dreams come true, no matter how lofty they may be. But never let an obsession with achieving your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.
When someone loves you, it teaches you that love, kindness, charity, humility, forgiveness and acceptance can counteract all the evil deeds in the world. Man has the power to control the balance between good and evil, but because the lessons of love are not taught often enough, the power is often abused.
When a loved one is unfaithful to you, it teaches you that resisting temptation is man’s greatest challenge, be vigilant in your resistance against all temptations, by so doing, you will be rewarded with enduring sense of satisfaction far greater than the pressure by which you were tempted.
When someone breaks your heart, it teaches you that loving someone does not always mean that, it is the same person that will reciprocate your love, when you find the right person the joy that the person brings, will make up for all your past hurts.
When you enter someone’s life whether by plan or chance, consider the lesson that you will teach, always bearing in mind that life is a small world.
