Experiencing the consequences of our choices, is probably one of the hardest things we will ever do, but it is an effective way of shaping a person’s behaviour and character.
When we choose and make decisions, we acquire skills that shape our lives positively, as long as we continue to practice those skills. The lessons we fail to learn will always have their consequences.
Most of us will go on to learn our lessons, others will fail to learn and will wonder why, but whatever our spiritual lessons, it is important we learn to take responsibility for our choices and any subsequent consequences.
Sometimes not making such good choices paves the way for us to become responsible adults, through our understanding of how and where we could have made better choices. We learn more from our mistakes, more than we do from getting things right.
Life is a learning curve, but with a little thought we should continue to learn to navigate our lives better and make better choices. We must learn that for every choice there is a consequence.
