the good things we've done in the past,
the mistakes we've woven into our lives,
the happiness and aches that lurches deep in our heart,
are all a part of an experience that we have gone through ,
or even yet an experience we long to gain.
that's a pretty bad written poem right there, whatever lah. is it even a poem ?
today i read some blogs *because i have the time to do so*, and then i realize i get really excited when i read things i've never went through and i start imagining and anticipating how would i react to a similar situation as the writer. but the truth is, i will never know how i would react unless i go through it myself. yet as human, we are merely weaklings that surely are not able to actually have all the experience in the world. therefore, we can only anticipate.
that's why there is a saying that says *lebih kurang camni lah*
" u can't have all the experience in the world, so use other people's experience as a guide"
so , if there's someone sharing something u've never been through, listen, live within the moment of the story, and then taaaaadaaaa ! u have a superficial experience ! great isn't it ?
experience is what makes u grow and what changes you holistically whether attitude-wise or
mindset-wise maybe even the way you view the world.
there's another saying that says
A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.
