I enjoy learning. It’s part of my nature to attempt to derive meanings and lessons from my life experiences. Everything has to have a reason. I can find a silver lining of a lesson in any hurricane. Things don’t turn out the way I hoped? That’s ok, I learned something about myself. Someone hurt me? That’s ok, now I know how to approach a similar situation in the future.  Finding the bright side is how I cope with most of my sadnesses.

In general, I find it to be a valuable skill to see what I’ve learned out of my experiences.  Sometimes, though, I want to just be unhappy. I don’t want to know the lesson. I want things to turn out the way I wanted with the lesson I had in mind. I don’t want to see the bright side.

So I won’t.

I’ll learn a lesson later.
