Personally I always heard older people telling me their life lessons and thought it was all just a joke. I mean, I listened to them and surely heard what they told me, but did not fully realize it until I became older.
Sometimes old people are not just saying something from experience or what they know as fact. A lot of the times they are just saying what they have heard or even other life experiences. It was not until the last few years that I came to realize this. Having gone through or hearing about a lot of life lessons I now know what it all meant when my elders told me stuff. Sure they may not have actually done the things that they warned me against, but they have lived long enough to know it was a bad idea or heard from somewhere else that it was a bad idea.
How about you? Anything you want to share?Last edited by spurgeonryan - on 02 February 2018
