32 Debunking A Belief

wisdomIt is often said and believed that wisdom comes with age. The general thought is that true wisdom lies with the old. I beg to differ as I have found a lot of old people that are obtuse and I have found that wisdom is more discernible in those (old and young) whom are unafraid to examine not only mistakes derived from their own poor judgments but the pitiable choices of others as well. Hence I believe that…

Wisdom does not always come with age, it comes with understanding and neither is exclusive to the old. Sometimes wisdom comes with experience lived and witnessed exclusively on the condition that the ones experiencing and witnessing is continually engaged in introspection; they are willing to proactively do what is necessary to prevent (wherever applicable) negative outcomes and practice mindfully the behaviours and actions essential to duplicate the positive ones.
Sometimes that clarity comes with age, sometimes it comes with understanding, for some it will take years for others it just never happens. All of it however comes from an examined life.
Mindfulness thought…
One person cannot live long enough to make and experience all the mistakes there are in the world. Sometimes it is wise to learn from others. –’self quoted’
