In the big scheme of things, we are all still relatively ‘young and stupid’, for we can only learn and prosper through the mistakes and experiences of ourselves, as well as through the example of others. The point is to learn and grow a bit each and every day; to take the time to reflect on what you have been through and what you can take from it. Instead of ignoring the reality of something or making excuses for it, you must face it and work through it. For when you do this, you gain knowledge and wisdom; and that is the best thing you could wish for in this life.
