Throughout my experiences, I’ve realized that no matter who you meet, everyone has a story. My sister and I both worked at bagel stores, where we dealt with customers all day, and trust me we have gotten some rude ones. But, instead of reacting in a negative way, I try to smile and be as positive as possible. It’s always important to remember that everyone that we encounter has a story, whether it be bad or good. That even with something as simple as a smile, can make anyone’s day better.
I try to remember that when I meet someone, I take in account that they experienced this day differently than the next person I will encounter. Whether it be a huge promotion at work, a death in the family, or maybe they burned their tongue on their coffee. No matter what the day may bring, it’s nice to meet people who bring good energy.
