Interesting Relationships in Personal Stories

Some people leave remarkable impressions on our lives. Friends, relatives, colleagues, professionals, mentors, community members, and even strangers can play a role in our decision-making. Beautiful relationships remain in fond memories, whether they bring joy or grief.

I met numerous people who appeared at the right time in my life, especially at crossroads, and gave me valuable insights.

Most of them were serendipitous encounters. I see them as metaphorical angels appearing during challenging times. I explained why I believe in angels in a previous story.

Some readers enjoyed my personal stories about interesting and insightful people I met face-to-face or online. Their feedback inspired me to share more.

In this post, I summarize some personal stories with links to originals featuring people who entered my life journey and taught me valuable life lessons. I update this collection as I post new stories.
