What time of your life did you learn most life lessons?

So far, I would say my 20's were the biggest learning experience.

  • I'm 54 and I'm still learning life lessons. I would say the older I get, the more I learn. And you continue to learn about yourself even from years ago. I'd forgotten my teen years until my daughter reached her teens. It's brought back tons of memories of how I behaved with my mom - I'm learning what my mom went through raising me - now from the other side!!! You NEVER stop learning powerful life lessons.

  • I'm still learning. I think it would be arrogant of myself to say I'm done learning. Life lessons are an almost everyday occurrence.... Losing both parents, divorces, having kids, the list goes on and on No certain time really sticks out..

  • Definitely still learning. Lots of things that happened to me in the past I'm just now getting the benefit of learning from, as I look back and realize the lessons there.

  • Yes, definitely I learned mine in my early twenties especially as far as relationships go and trust. I think my more formidable years, lets say 9, I learned a lot about social skills and seem to recall a lot today from that age.

  • I think my 30's. They sucked! went through some very rough stuff, but came out on the other side wiser, and definitely more mature.

  • i don't know if i'd ever be able to pick one time of my life, since i'm constantly evolving, growing, and learning- something i hope never stops. then again, i'm 24 lol- and although that seems young i have been through A LOT in my life already, so if i had to pick a time now it would be when i was 21-- had just finally left my abusive ex husband (who got sentenced to jail thanks to my testimony) that i was with since childhood, only to realize i was pregnant and going to be a single mother- while finally going back to college. i learned so much about myself and life and those lessons stay with me daily (like the powers of gratitude and persevearance).

  • I never stop learning, but I'd say the area where I grew the most was my mid twenties through my late thirties
