Quote by John Dewey: “We do not learn from experience... we learn fro...”
No matter how many degrees we have or what kind of education we received, there are some thing that only life can teach us-lessons that we only learn in the school of life. We may graduate with honors and pick a great career, but it can still make us feel unfulfilled, this is when we learn the importance of finding meaning and purpose in our lives that goes beyond the realm of a secure job and a good education. We learn that we have to stand on our own and take care of ourselves. In school when we failed a class, it was easy to make up for it or study harder for the next one, but in life, failure can scar us or even change our whole perspective on the meaning of life. Life teaches us that failure is a part of it, and that success can only come after so many failures. We learn how to move on from failure and accept it as part of our journey. Not the puppy love or the high school love; we need the real kind of love, the love that is reflected in the support of others, the kindness of others and the love that elevates our lives.
We learn that we have to stand on our own and take care of ourselves. Our parents and teachers won't guide us anymore, so it's just us against.

Natural Learning Experiences: How we Learn From Life’s Lessons
When people recount their most transformative high-school experiences, there are some common themes. My friend Emily, for example, will recount her memories of visiting New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide to cultivate more of what we like about ourselves as opposed to just randomly accepting every way in which we react. Your habits, priorities, ways in which you interact with people and work that you love, even how your perception is being shaped… All of this partially came from learning from your experiences. We are sum of our experiences , hence they are priceless. What you and I are today is due to what we have experienced and how we decided to label that. If nurtured, this process of learning from your experience can either promulgate progress by repeating what you liked in the past, or simply never bring the good stuff back again. If you ask Robin Sharma, one of the best motivational speakers and book authors in the world, about what he thinks constitutes the secrets of success , he will mention, among other things, dedicating some time for yourself where you can just escape the clutter, sit down and think. What this does he says, and I cannot agree more, is being able to prioritize about your goals, realize your potential, evaluate your experiences.
Only through experiences and accepting mistakes and failures can we draw our own conclusions to move forward. To live is to experience, and this is part of our human essence and our instinct of curiosity. We could say that life is a journey of learning , and therefore, the only way to overcome it is by living. We never learn through the experiences of others, despite their advice, insistence and guidance. The human being is a mammal that is born devoid of strategies of autonomy and independence. On the other hand, meaningful learning is one that is acquired based on the acquired knowledge. Therefore, to learn, we need to explore, discover, fail and be right.

However, we always have a choice in how we interpret our experiences. Take, for instance, the relationship that you so desperately wanted to work out when you were a teenager or young adult. At the time, you probably couldn't imagine life without them. Or, maybe you had a job that you loved that came with a boss who was abusive.
