“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard
Experience is life. It is what builds character and derives meaning through an ongoing relationship between self and one’s environment. While I may ascribe some experiences as more desirable than others, I nonetheless am a product of them. Examining one’s past mistakes gives insight as to the ‘why’ things happened, so that I can go forth with that gained knowledge a freer individual.
