  1. This quote is very true. Most of our lives we have people who are older than us pass on advice from their experience, yet, most the time we do not listen. We must “experience” it for ourselves. Often times that I tried to experience events on my judgement and not taking the advice of others it was bad judgement. At the same time if we do not experience things for ourselves and only go by other peoples advice or experience are we actually living? In a sense we need those bad judgement experiences so that we can form our own individual lives.

  2. This is a hard one to get your head around as a young person and even a young adult in our society. We strive for perfection and are often punished for the mistakes that will shape us into a better person as we age. I believe if we can try to shift the focus from the punishment to the learning experience our younger people will be better equipped to handle and learn from it.
    I still battle the fear of making mistakes and assume that will never go away. I simply have to get over it each and every time in order to better myself.

  3. It is a process. Much like life. Perfection is always going to be out of reach. I think we all strive to do better, to make better decisions. All human interactions over the period of a lifetime for each of us are not without a few regrets.Being open and honest will lead to better judgment. Always with a little help from a friend.
