Want to share the most significant lessons you have learned in your life? It could be about astrology, relationships, self, etc. Anything at all.

Let's feed each other's brains with our personal wisdom-by-experience

One of the things I have learned that keeps coming back to bite me is that I am more vulnerable than I think I am, emotionally. I'd like to get to a place where I can recognise this before it's too late and my heart implodes. It may be my Virgo Moon intellectualising emotions while they continue to burgeon and then they burst forth seemingly uncontrollably. I can be exhausted and dazed for days after a meltdown like that. It's quite isolating as well, because when it happens I don't want anyone to see me. Like the wounded animal that finds a quiet corner to lick its wounds. Stupid pride as well I guess, but also fear of my emotionality upsetting someone else.

It's like a Lay's potato chip. I can't have just one.

If you eat one, you'll eat them all, therefore you eat none? I have the same relationship with chocolate!

The only certainty in life is death. Death also doesnít exist. There is no future.

Love it Vansio. But which type of "death" are we referring to? My experience has been that life is a series of deaths, some big, some wee.

My Virgo Moon and I can totally agree with that Eternal!

Me too, but after dinner in the evening. There is this lemon and juniper gin dark chocolate you can get from Morrisons - sheer heaven

Oh...yes! I love dark chocolate with lemon. Or dark chocolate with orange. Or dark chocolate with whiskey. Or dark chocolate with rum. I make chocolate ganache with rum for my cakes. Mmm...love it...

If I made chocolate ganache with rum it wouldn't make it to the cakes alive

Are you a "feeder"??

With Jupiter in the 1st I guess I am "a fed" I just know there's a big girl inside me somewhere and a chocolate fountain would lure her out!

Though my Lilith is on my MC and my Kaali on my ASC, I'm afraid I can't answer this question dear Voix_de_la_Mer! You see, I have been long in charge of these two ladies and I am the one who tells them what to do and when.

If life has taught me one lesson after another its never hate something or make a biased judgment, it will come back to haunt me later!!.

-----------------------------------------
1) My first diploma was a community college diploma in Media Studies/Game Development.

The last course I had to take which I disliked was game programing - networking. The instructor didn't teach us properly and I swore I whould never touch networking ever again.

Fast forward, I end up moving up to the university level and now I'm finishing off a degree in Computer Science...now everything I do involves networking!!!.


---------------------------------------
2) I also travel frequently by train especially between Ottawa and Toronto since I have ties in both cities.

I'd always look out the window at the country side until I reached my final destination.

There was this small town along the way that was about 1.5hr outside of Toronto and I whould always joke to myself who whould want to live out there??.

Well right before I moved back (I was the last) my parents decided to buy a retirement farm.

Can you guess where?...that small town the train whould pass through.

Now whenever I see the town when I travel by train I ask myself why did I jinx/coursed myself by mocking the town?.

-----------------------------------------

3) I couldn't stand a coworker when I first started and swore I hated the persons guts, after working with that person for X amount of years were now good friends.

That my over-protective/(s)mothering style of managing staff (in the UK public sector) had resulted in them being unable/unfit/unprepared to compete with their private sector counterparts, when the Conservative Government put their jobs out to tender in the late 1980s.

Fortunately though, public sector managers were given enough warning/lead-in-time to learn how to motivate staff to "perform better" rather than empathising with their reasons for not doing so. ... And, that change of managerial style enabled all of my staff to retain their jobs when they went out to tender.

If I had to choose just one life lesson, it would be to never trust anyone completely.

Including yourself, Randall?

For example ... can you completely trust yourself to always tell "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth"?

No one tells the truth all the time. Anyone who claims to is more dishonest than most and should not be trusted in the least.

So ... YOU cannot be trusted to tell the truth, Randall?

For example ... might you be someone who deceives and manipulates others by not telling the WHOLE truth?
