What are the lessons people most often learn too late in life? Hi, thank you for asking. Whilst reading your question I was listening to the song 7 Years by Lukas Graham and one line struck me, it was ‘remember life, and then your life becomes a better one’. I’ve always been baffled why people can have so many regrets in their life. We’ve seen people wishing they could go back in time and ‘change everything’. On the other hand, life doesn’t work that way. Furthermore, regret is always at the end – we’ve never seen anyone feel regret at the start of any story.
Well, life is colorful. A person who has pursued his academe over his love for music might say ‘I wish I could’ve pursued my dream to be a musician’. Moreover, someone who chose his other endeavors over academe might say ‘I wish I could have studied more’. I am also recollecting the song of Charlene entitled ‘I’ve Never Been To Me’ where she explicitly expressed regret over the life she chose when she could’ve settled for a more simpler yet fulfilling life.
We all walk on different shoes but often enough, the meat lesson we can learn is to embrace the life that we have – one that was wholeheartedly laid out for us. No one walks the same path and that’s superlatively amazing because life is uniquely colorful. Later in life, it’s impossible not to have regrets – but at the end of the day, the life that we have is always worth to be thankful for – and that’s the lesson we all have the option to learn not only late in life but in any life stage that we are in.
I hope I answered your question.
