We always heard that we become wiser and rational as we grow up, but reality hits hard when we realize that even after living a few decades, we don’t get immunity from mistakes. It is understandable since we are only humans, but somehow, there are some people out there who don’t only make mistakes, but they repeat the same errors over and over again, and that is not acceptable.
The most important thing we long for when we grow older is to learn how to become healthier and happier, in addition to other things that will make our lives more comfortable and a little more settled.
Now that we are 40 years old, it is time to pause, rewind, and learn from every single mistake we have made in the past few decades. It is actually time to let the lessons we learned to shape us in order to stop being a nagging sense of regret.
