Why do we have to thank the strangers we meet? 

 

What are some lessons that you got from strangers?

 

I know that growing up we were warned not to walk to strangers. But as I grew old that fear and prejudice in talking to a stranger has slowly faded away. I found out that confiding in a complete stranger is very refreshing. Just because don’t really have expectation of who I should be and they see me for who I am at that very moment. 

 

This episode will be about how strangers taught us things that we never expected to learn along the way in the journey of life. Why should we be grateful for these strangers? Are most of these people still strangers? Or are they some of your friends now?  

 

Giving the time and chances to get to know a stranger you’d realize that they could actually be someone you want in your life. Working in the industry of social media I’ve realized that some strangers are the ones that support you in the passions you chase in your life and because you guys share the same passions, there is much love and support if you let it be. 

 

Let’s talk about how these relationships started and how it made you feel to have the support of strangers because of shared passions and etc.

 

 

There are benefits in reaching out to strangers and being open enough to accept in strangers as they try to connect too. These are of course based also on your intuition if you think these people would just try to hurt you or not so be weary still. 

 

 

 

 

Benefits of talking to strangers:

 

1.     Develops confidence

 

Allows you to go out of your comfort zone and gives you a boost of confidence if you were able to create a connection. You’ll see it’s not so bad. 

 

2.     Improve Co-Working skills

 

As you work on the courage and confidence to approach a stranger. This will give you an edge whenever you start a job, or school in a new place. You’d have the courage to approach these new people you’d be spending time with. 

 

3.     Improving your listening skills

 

Talking with strangers teaches you great listening skills, which is an important skill to have in the working world, and life in general. This is because when you talk to strangers, it isn’t about you telling them all about yourself. Instead, it’s about asking questions, learning from them, and listening to what they have to say. We now learn to listen to learn not just to respond.

 

4.     Making friends and expanding your network

 

Who knows where it will lead when you approach a stranger with a burst of curiosity. Who knows you might even share the same passions and likes in life that you become involved in each other’s life instead of a brief moment in time. Could be in business or in friendship as well, the possibilities are endless. 

 

5.     Improving your listening skills

 

Talking with strangers teaches you great listening skills, which is an important skill to have in the working world, and life in general. This is because when you talk to strangers, it isn’t about you telling them all about yourself. Instead, it’s about asking questions, learning from them, and listening to what they have to say. We now learn to listen to learn not just to respond.

 

 

6.     Change in perspective and learn more

 

Introducing yourself to strangers allows you to substantially broaden your worldview. There is always somebody that knows more about an issue or subject than you. Learning about their views can potentially help to open up your own mind and even challenge your own belief systems.

 

 

7.     Improves your mood and somebody else’s

 

Talking to someone or asking them how their day was could improve their mood and yours. The world could seem so much better than it is. 

 

 

 

Why should we be grateful to strangers?
