First hand experience might be the best way to learn a lesson, but is it necessary to LIVE every experience in order to LEARN the lesson?
If you read a book, watch a movie, watch somebody else’s life or just think about about a situation that teaches a lesson in life, can’t you learn your lessons without actually living them out in your own life?
Think about it. There are MANY ways in life to learn. Pay attention to everyday life and learn all of the time.
Does it really matter how we learn? Isn’t the main outcome that we LEARN?
