    dots"We Learn the Most.......dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Learning is something people tend to do all the time, from dawn to dusk and birth to death. Learning just comes naturally to human beings, no matter their age, intelligence, or sex. When, though, is someone learning the most and from whom? Some people believe people learn most at school from teachers etc. and others believe people learn most from themselves and their own experiences. I believe we learn most from ourselves because who else is closer to us?
    Though learning can and does happen anywhere, people tend to learn the most important lessons when they “teach” themselves. As Galileo Galilei says “You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself”. Nobody else can teach a person what to feel or think in certain situations. Sure some of it is taught by watching others or is preprogrammed at birth, though how often does a person know how to deal with a situation that may arise like death or peer pressure. Without going through it and “teaching” oneself how to react and feel?
    I am not saying that learning from others is a waste of time, because sometimes people can learn lessons from others who know them inside and out. Often these lessons can be just as meaningful as if people “teach” themselves. Through others, people can learn how to help friends and family through difficult issues; grief, betrayal, and life.
    Therefore, we learn the most from those closest to us. Even though people learn everyday items like math, reading, and walking, these things are mundane compared to life’s real lessons. Learning may come at people from all angles but we learn most from the one’s who know us inside and out, but ourselves.

      Very well written and incisive piece, and my compliments! You have a developing talent for writing that is remarkable! I've raised several children from infancy to adulthood, and looking back, I'm of the impression that often, they learned as much "in spite of me" as "because of me"!
