It is not unusual for someone with experience to talk about what they have been through to try and stop someone else from experiencing heartache or unnecessary troubles. Everyone does not listen. An old saying that comes to mind is, “You live and learn.”
Life lessons and old sayings go hand in hand. Mistakes are life lessons. Look at the mistakes as opportunities to learn about yourself and the situation at hand.
It’s okay to learn from someone’s mistake(s) but know that regardless of the error made, be it yours or someone else, you don’t want to keep repeating the same mistake.
Damned if you do and damned if you don’t is just as relevant today as it was back in the day.

Hi, my name is Belinda. I am an Introvert/Silent Observer with untold stories waiting for a read. I enjoy people watching, reading, road trips, and writing. I smile, laugh, cry, and can be quite bashful when the opportunity presents itself. My mind runs a marathon that has yet to end, and I write to relax and release.
