      Things I've Learned

      A thread for anyone to share insight and wisdom...or instances where a lack of wisdom contributed to personal knowledge.



      I've learned that just because I turn off the TV or computer doesn't mean situations for real people in the world change or get any better.


      I've learned teenage boys will always think they know more than any adult on any subject.


      I've learned that dandruff should never be used as an art supply.

      I learned that I shouldn't drink whiskey, I vomit every time. Perhaps I'm allergic?

      I learned that I should trust my own feelings over the Lowes employee who told me to buy the wrong switch for my ceiling fan.

      Whisky doesn't solve all my problems. Just most of them.

      I've learned that most of my online friends are easier to find common ground with than people I know face-to-face.

      Mix whiskey with clubs soda and drink it (nipping) slowly with pleasure. It's one of my favorite liquors.

      Spoiler for Parenthood:


      TL ; DR : Parenthood is too authoritative, stop losing faith in your child by spoiling them, and realize that you set the forces in motion for them to live this long enough in the first place.....isn't that enough for you? You started this, you aren't entitled to end it with condescending speech that tries to avoid your inferiority complex.

      If they're 14 years of age and think they're big shots, sure, give them a piece of your mind, but when they ACTUALLY reach the age where they should be able to think and make decisions for themselves, but still take into consideration of their parents' advice, try not to be so hard on them if they're not jumping off cliffs or doing hard drugs (meth, cocaine).

      ---

      Oh wait, I learned that I have to be a parent first before I can be aware of this. Yes, how "stupid" of me.

      "You'll learn when you have a child."

      Yeah, I'm going to learn that I should be guiding the child to the right path, not forcing them to go on the right path.

      Actually believe they will make the right choice, acknowledge their choices and tell them the consequences of any choice they're planning to take, and actually SEE them make the right decision ...rather than making them feel like they're piles of shit for doing something bad, and forcing down their throats of the right decision that could've been done with the former.

      Teaching them to think for themselves at a young age, instead of replacing something so obvious with authoritative expression, and setting practical limits (like not driving into an 18 wheeler), and letting their spongy brains absorb basic rationale early so I don't have to tell them the obvious every god damn time, and end up becoming the same thing I was trying to avoid and improve on.

      And still be there to give them guidance if they get into a bad situation.

      [sarcasm] I'm just your typical stupid, misguided young adult. That's what I learned so far. I must acquire these things you call children to sustain something that was taught in the first place, if not, you might think I know the totality of the universe and beyond. [/sarcasm]

      I've learned that I am just as capable of making many of the mistakes I judge others for, if the circumstances are there.

      I've learned depending your happiness on the circumstances life brings you is a surefire way to make yourself sad eventually.

      I've learned experiences are the only possession you can't lose (unless you get Alzheimer's or something)

      I've learned the things that make us happiest are often the hardest to sit down and get started on.

      One that seems important lately is not to let others make you feel bad about your decisions unless you can see clearly why you were wrong. When you've made a careful decision and judge it to be right, it's easy to feel trapped by an "I'm wrong" mentality when those around you keep telling you how stupid you're being. Of course it's important to analyse their judgments and determine why they think you're wrong. But once you've done that, if you still come out realizing you're right, there comes a time at which the most productive course of action is to simply stop giving a shit about what anyone else thinks.

      I've learnt that we shouldn't limit our social circle to people we meet at school and at work. Online is far easier to find someone with common interests.

      Gold, Melanie.

      I have learned since being a teenage boy that I don't know nearly as much as I thought I did.

      I've learned that the people who need the most guidance are the ones least likely to accept it.


      I've learned that I need to stop putting the cap back on the mental bleach.

      I've learned that I've almost always considered myself as smarter and more knowledgeable than people around me, only to look back a few years and think: "Man, I was such an idiot back then compared to know." I guess the world is indeed full of dumbasses.

      Its ironic, considering the content of your post, but

      >know
      its now, bro.

      I guess the world indeed is full of dumbasses. You and I deeply, deeply included.

      i learned that i need to examine my intentions more closely.
      a lot of times i may feel spot on with what i say or type but its the intentions behind my words that really disgust me.
