I do not think poker teaches us in relation to our social life and I even think that poker often causes people to destroy themselves financially and mentally, in short, I see no teaching swim for life.

Poker has definitely been a valuable life lesson tool for many. For me, it taught me that you can lose everything you have as fast as you got it. I know it's an extreme analogy comparing poker chips to your current position in life but if you think about it factoring happiness, everyone has their ups and downs in life (just like in the poker tables), no matter how far up or far down you are in life (or in a tournament) you will be experiencing highs and lows and you just need to accept that that's the way it works. Similarly you may be doing amazing in a tournament, reach final table and get sucked out from a bad beat and ruining your night.
