What single lesson did life teach you this far?

Losing a child, shatter your dreams for the future

@nedkelly The term “Vilomah” describes a parent who has lost their child. Life has its natural order, and in that order, children are supposed to outlive their parents. It comes from Sanskrit, the same language that gave us the word widow which means “empty.”

We have minimal control over things in life. If lucky, control over how we react!

@Handfull1 A good stoic philosophy!

@Handfull1 To be lucky is indeed worth a lot

@Handfull1 Amen! And getting old is not for wimps! 🤣

Nothing is what it seems.

@Fairydust It never is, but being alive is complex enough

Rely on nothing and no one.
Because the second you do somebody will let you down when you need them most

@Picklebobble2 There always must be hope :)

@val70 I often think hope is what gets you into trouble.
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, [i]hopes all things[/i], endures all things...
And now there abide faith, [i]hope,[/i] love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

It’s never fair.
val70 · 51-55
@rockstar I rather think that an obstacle is there to overcome. What's not fair needs to be addressed. That's for sure too, because otherwise we wouldn't have history filled with struggle for better

No such thing as a single life lesson. There's thousands of lessons throughout life.
val70 · 51-55
@Queendragonfly Care to name them?
don’t trust a liar
val70 · 51-55
@BonnieWillRingsYourBell Another self-evident truth
Still learning.
