It is said that the hardest lessons of life are experienced and not taught. Yes, because no matter how good the teacher tends to be, if they are not able to show you how to learn a hard lesson in life, it is of absolutely no use.

Hard Lessons about People:

When a human being is a kid, everyone in the world seems to be friendly except for his or her family, While the parents appear wrong because they teach good lessons and the siblings appear to be the worst foes because you have to share your things with them.

But as a human being grows adult, he or she learns the hardest lessons of life which tell that nobody in the world is friendlier than the family because blood is always thicker than water.

As you grow up, you realize that the people who tend to be friendly to you were actually temporary people who were around you because they were either friendly with your parents or had some needs. You cannot consider even your best friends to last forever because, again, unless it’s the blood relations, they hardly last.

And even your blood relatives like your siblings etc. may not support you their entire life. Once they start their own family, they are like other people of the world.

And most of the other people would be a part of your life only because they need something from you — may be because you are more attractive than the other or maybe because you are rich. You meet a lot of temporary people in your life and again, these people teach you the hardest lessons of life.

Hard Lessons About Money:

For most people on earth, money is their everything and they would not hesitate to do unethical tasks because it involves money.

However, it is also important to know that money is something that teaches the hardest lessons in the life of people and you tend to get lessons when you do not have money and even when you have a lot of it. All you need to do is pay heed to what money teaches you in life.

When you do not have money and may be, for a night or so, you had to sleep empty stomach because of lack of food or resources. This is something that you would and should never forget in your entire life.

It is important to know that all days in the life of a person are not dark and there is no light every single day. So if you do not have money in a phase of your life, you may get it in some days and vice-versa is also possible.

So when you have a lot of money, it is important not to forget those days when you did not have anything and not change your behavior towards other people. One of the hardest lessons in the life of a person is that money has wings and it can fly from one place to another.

So when you do not have money, it is important to be patient and when you have all the money in the world, it is important to keep your feet grounded.

These are some of the most important lessons that you learn in life with experience in different phases. You would meet a lot of people that show you different phases of life and you would also encounter a lot of money. How all these people and all that money makes a change in your life are perhaps the hardest experiences of life.
