The learning curve
We learn in every step of our life and are constantly engaging in something or the other, improving skills and always on a lookout for better opportunities. Each of our experiences is different in each phase of life. These encounters teach us something new, to help us grow. The people around us, the circumstances that we have been in, the lessons that we are taught, and many other experiences shapes and defines us.
There are many characteristics, values that are imbibed in us as kids, and stay forever, yet there can be some personal traits that change in us as we mature.
We all know of some kids who were very naughty during their childhood but became complete opposite after growing up. Similarly, there are some who remember being an introvert when they were young and are extroverts now. There is a huge difference in their persona which is pretty interesting to understand. There is no right or wrong but all of this is an observational study of how our mind grows.
The same topic was being discussed during our visit to an amusement park. All of us were excited about the roller coaster rides, yet we had a certain level of fear. Most of us shared a similar state of mind.
We would never be scared of these adventures at an early age, but it had started to creep in as we grew older. Some also shared that they would panic as kids when the rides went upside down and not feel safe in them, while on the contrary, now, they tend to spend the entire day in these amusement parks. I guess the same is the case with heights; some individuals start getting a fear after a certain age.
In all of this, it is amusing to observe how our mind changes with our body. From the time we are toddlers; our brains adapt and learn to differentiate between our preferences by choosing our likes and dislikes. If we notice there are lots of changes happening as we grow up, some we observe while some we don’t. All in all, we become smarter and sharper, earning the wisdom that truly only comes with life experiences.
