In our country there is a proverb: «Wise men learn by other men’s mistakes; fools by their own.»
I actually do not agree with this and I believe that in most cases people can only learn from their own mistakes, feel it deeply, realize what their actions led to, and repent. This is how a person, in my opinion, goes through this experience and copes with his negative qualities. Until this happens, he will repeat it over and over again.
We can of course see the mistakes of others and not repeat them.
But in my opinion, it was rather not our unresolved internal problem, we solved it once and now just saw and remembered by someone else’s example. 🤷🏼♀️
In this case, if we think about it more deeply, there are no mistakes at all, because negative actions or events still lead to our learning and improvement, which means they are needed and this cannot be called a mistake.
These are just my recent thoughts on this topic, I could be mistaken…😁
