It may not be something new to run into a stranger at a coffee shop or a bookstore or in a college and sooner or later the stranger gets familiar and close. It happens.
The stranger seems like everybody else. And the reason why he came doesn’t make sense first. When you start hanging around, holding a conversation, interacting with him opens a new perspective. Gives a new idea you’re not aware. An idea that can create this domino effect that can boost your business. An idea that you need to fix a problem that you have been working on for quite some time. Teaches you something that is worthwhile. He introduces new people that are like-minded, entrepreneurs, book lovers, and much more.
The stranger doesn’t have to be him. It can be her. It’s not necessary for him to be with for a long time. Some are like shooting stars, some are seasonal fruits. Some stay for a very long time. When their part to serve is over they’ll be gone. If you try to hold them, it’s not going to be good for either of you. When they’re playing the role, you can’t get rid of them. Even if you do, it’d be ugly.
They come, they go. Take what they have got for you and be thankful for them and for yourself. Be patient. Enjoy a little bit. Create a healthy relationship with the stranger.
