Everyone would like to believe that human beings are intuitive and self-aware to the point that they can understand the mistakes they make and even learn from them. When this occurs, at the very minimum, we make sure that we don’t repeat the same mistake. At the most, we use these experiences to transform and grow into better people. Therefore, it is clearly a tragedy when people have all these different life experiences yet learn nothing from them. Even when the consequences of the loss are staring them blatantly in the face or the repercussions are considerable and far-reaching, they may continue to live in blissful ignorance. Unfortunately, this reflects the approach of far too many people who don’t make life happen but allow life to happen to them.
Then again, living blissfully unaware of what is genuinely a loss may soften the blow of knowing that it has become another person’s gain.
