Each of us has some different experiences that teach meaningful lessons from which others can learn. Maya Angelou taught me that "when people tell you who they are, believe them." That is a great lesson of life to learn. We all have gems of wisdom that can help others, and it's always good to think about them and share.

…so very true.
Pagevoice, I am with you. As you listed the things that we pay attention throughout our younger days, I saw myself, but what is great is that I now see your gem of wisdom in my life. I don't sweat the small stuff anymore.
...Great advice. When I was a teacher, I tried to always teach with that gem of wisdom in mind. Students learn a lot when you keep it simple.
If we all could learn your lesson, there would be far less anger in the world. Some grudges are held so long that it's hard to even remember what caused the initial fight. I agree with you. Let it go!!!
I do believe also that God has placed on the earth all of the answers to whatever we need. That is a comforting thought.
I think you're right. Your answer made me smile.
Your words hit the proverbial nail on the head.
