Every encounter we come across is life a lesson one way or another. From bad grades to bad breakups. From milestone accomplishments to having a family. Each of those events are encounters that must embrace. Every person that you encounter teaches you a little bit more about yourself whether you realize then or later on. It’s quite funny how life works huh? I sometimes ponder why I’ve been put in certain situations that in a million years would I ever think I’d end up in. And then I think back, this is just another lesson in a million that I’ll encounter throughout my whole lifetime. To anyone who comes across or reads this passage, remember, close encounters are never bad, they’re simply life lessons.
