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.


Life happens, and life’s lessons are either educational or mistakes repeated.

My mind is running a marathon again. Let me apologize for any profanity that may drop; I am merely entertaining myself. Thinking of everything yet nothing and making sense of it all only helps me acknowledge that I’m rambling beyond sprinters’ position. Join me in scratching my temple and asking myself, What the fuck was that about?

My Grandma always said, “Two wrongs don’t make it right.” I’m older now, and I say, “Two wrongs don’t make it right, but it damn sure makes us even.” And you may feel better afterward. Taking the high road doesn’t always work.
Mistakes are life’s way of teaching us. Life happens, and life’s lessons are either educational or mistakes repeated. And know that you did not learn anything if you keep repeating the same mistakes. Understanding the unknown is nothing when you should have expected the unexpected anyway.
