Something I’ve just learned yesterday: sometimes, we outgrow people.

And sometimes, we contract ourselves for those who refused to grow to maintain the status quo for mutual benefits, until we finally realised their limited mindset or incapability to grow is bringing more harm than good to us.

This is more in the context of working life. A timely alarm to wake me up from an 8 years slumber, which was triggered by how certain things were handled poorly by certain people, given the years of experience. I can’t help but wonder how the alternate reality would look like now if I were to wake up earlier.

“Only surround yourself with people who will lift you higher.” – Oprah Winfrey

This is so true.
