“Personally I’m always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught. ” ~ Winston Churchill

spiritual teachersI am fairly curious. I love learning stuff.

Like how I recently learned that although children get more individual vaccination shots these days than when I was a kid, in total they get less of a dose.

Or that Saguenay, Quebec has the longest winter in Canada – a total of 160 days! (note to self: Never relocate to Saguenay, Quebec)

Whether I’m watching a documentary, chatting with an expert in a specific field, or reading about an interesting subject here in the blogosphere, I love learning new things.

However, I’m not always a fan of someone pointing out the error of my ways, or even worse, when I find myself irritated, not by what someone says, but by the way I find myself reacting to them.

Much to my chagrin, as far as self-awareness goes and growing into the person I am, and continue to become, nothing else is as effective as annoying people and irritating situations.


Can you think of an important lesson or revelation you learned from someone who initially rubbed you the wrong way?
