Lessons are something that parents and teachers teach us in school, colleges and home. ‘Life’ and ‘Lesson’ are two completely different words that have meanings nowhere near each other.
When these two words are written or spoken side by side i.e., Life-lesson, it changes the meaning completely and turns it into something deep meaningful word.
However, it still resembles with the meaning of lesson, as a life lesson is a lesson that is learned by a person through experiencing or watching a certain incident. Life lesson are not always liked by people. Life lessons are harder to forget than normal lesson.
These lessons are most of the time learned in the most unexpected situation and because they are leaned like this, they stay with us forever. Life lessons can be classified as a type of warnings that is given to a person so that the said person does not repeats the same mistake twice.
Some life lessons can be harder than the others as they show a person about the harsh reality that most of the people would like to ignore.
Human beings are interesting creature as when a person shares their life lesson we say that we understand and up to a certain extent we do but when the same lesson we learn, we actually feel it for the first time.
This is a trait of human being or it can be said that most of the human being behaves like this, and I am no different in this case either.
Human beings are nowhere near perfect, so they make mistakes but what make human being different from other animals is that they learn from those mistakes so that they can avoid making the same mistake again.
I also fall under this category because after I make a mistake, I learn from it. In my case, I shouldn’t have made that mistake but in a weird way, I dare say that I am glad I did because if wouldn’t have made that mistake on that day, I probably still would not have learnt the much-needed lesson.
In my opinion, the grave mistake that I made was to judge a person by their look and way of talking before actually talking with them.
I had a bad habit of doing it and at that time I never thought anything about it but now when I look back and think about all the people I judged, I realized that I was a stupid judgmental kid back then.
This was the hardest life lesson that I learnt till today. I am actually ashamed to say that I did this kind of things.
The incident that made me realize of my stupidity was when the same thing happens with me. I laugh when I think about the fact that I never thought even once before judging a person but when the same thing happens to me, I felt hurt when I actually had no right to be hurt.
When I felt how much it hurt to get judged by a person who doesn’t know me at all, I realized that I was doing the same thing with different persons. I always loved reading story books and had finished reading hundreds of books and am very much aware of the proverb – don’t judge a book by its cover, yet I failed to do that in real life.
However, I am glad to learn that lesson as I really needed that lesson. I never realized that when you receive the same treatment you give to someone, you should either have courage to accept it or you should change the way you treat people.
I don’t judge people anymore and I even ask my friends to not do it either by explaining what happened with and some listens to me and others don’t. I feel bad to think about the day when they will get this lesson in life all by themselves and the way they will receive the lesson.
But on the other hand, people do need this lesson and no one can be a better teacher than life itself. From my experience I learnt that when life gives you a lesson, you can never forget it and I haven’t and I suspect that I probably never will.
I am not complaining though because there is nothing to complain. I guess this is what people call growing up. I am sure that I haven’t grown up that much but from my experiences that life have given me so kindly, can say that everyone needs life lesson as it makes us realize the mistakes that we made and help us to become a better person.
Human beings are social creatures, so they like to share their experiences with other peoples. These sharing experiences help in social awareness which in turn makes the society somewhat a better place to live in.
Life lessons vary from person to person as each person is unique in their own way so people don’t experience the same thing in the same way. What important is to learn from those experiences. In my opinion, a person learns better from life than from anything else or anyone else.
I am not saying that it is true for everyone or there are other people who agree with me. All I am saying is that life teaches you in such a way that it becomes hard to forget those lesson as the persons are involved in that particular experience. Life lessons are important and are irreplaceable.
Human beings still have hope and life lesson is one of the reasons behind that hope. My life lesson taught me not judge anyone without getting to know them and because this was the hardest lesson for me till today, I can say that I am somewhat prepared for the next lesson that life will kindly throw at me possibly at the worst and I am prepared to accept it and to learn from it. I am thankful to life for all the lessons it taught me till today.
