Really? Why would you want to “figure it out for yourself”? Why do people think that it’s better for someone to have to go through horrible experiences to learn when someone else can tell them and save the headache. I am a firm believer in learning from your mistakes. Don’t get me wrong. I am just seeing so many people feel the need to experience things for themselves and I don’t see the point. If I go through something terrible and I learn from that, when I share with someone my experiences and my advice on how to avoid the same problem, if my friend then goes and decides they need to see for themselves, when they go through the same issue I went through I would feel confused and a bit hurt. As if they didn’t trust my advice.I would also like to think that the fact I have overcome some issues and learned from it, that the things I have learned can help someone and that the poo I went through, something good is coming out of that. Isn’t that what blogging is about also? That we as writers share our experiences and give input on how we overcame some issues or and ice on how to deal with problems and as readers we are searching for answers to problems.
I have also seen this same belief in parents and children. Parents will at times withhold advice or information that would help their child succeed further than they did. Instead of giving them tools to excel, tools they squired through hardship, they say “They have to learn it just like I did.” Why? Isn’t that why parents are there? To help thier children have a more successful life. To excel and exceed thier parents? The impartation of wisdom from parents is crucial to a persons success.
(watch this video above. I started a Youtube Channel in order to learn from you all and to share with you everything I know.)
There is a reason God made us to have relationships with each other. So that we can lift each other up and help each other overcome obsticles and help warn so that obsticles can be prevented.
We can’t be stubborn and too proud to learn from someone else. If we all learn from each other’s mistakes then we will all succeed more and reach our highest potential. There is supply in the joints and in the joining of people together. Be humble to listen and ask questions and be caring and loving enough to share what you have learned so others don’t have to endure the same headaches.
