Understanding Personality Traits
Each person who enters our life has a unique lesson to teach us. It is only through these lessons that we learn about life, people and our relationship with God.
When someone lies to you, it teaches you that things are not always what they seem. Look beyond the mask people wear if you want to know what is in their hearts. First of all, one should remove one’s own mask and reveal the self.
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 friends or family for granted, because to-day we have them and there is guarantee for tomorrow.
If someone inflicts injury upon you, it is an indication that human beings can also be cruel. Therefore, look after yourself and most importantly, don’t hurt that person yourself.
And again, when someone mocks you, do not judge them. Instead, have good wishes and pure feelings for them in your heart.
Understand the personality traits of those around you and learn to mould yourself accordingly.
