People say we learn about life AFTER we got the lesson. Just like saying we took an exam, failed, and now we understand the answers. I am thinking the clues about life surround us. We only awaken to it AFTER we suffered greatly. For instance, someone who never got married and is older, i.e. lower probability to bear a child will look back on her life and realize where. she went wrong. Perhaps she will realize her desires were silences just to be at par with her family, society, to get along. And now that family, society no longer pressure her, she realizes what she truly wants and tries to get it. Maybe it's not too late. Thoughts?
