By the time we learn, it's too late
That's the perennial problem, isn't it?
We finally figure it all out and the train bumps into the stoppers at the terminus.
I'm not sure what we can do about that save listening to others we trust….ie learn from them without having to go the whole journey ourselves.
But that's fraught too. Because sometimes we're just different and the solution for others simply isn't the right solution for us.
Always pondered with this one and still am.
Maybe I'm over-thinking it. Maybe the journey is the learning.
