1. “the opportunity for vicarious learning…” I love that! That is what this journey is all about — always learning, growing and allowing the Lord to shape us.

    I learned one of the most important lessons of my life from my best friend when I was in high school. He was dealing with a lot of very dark things and pressures to be something he didn’t want to be. He often told me that I was the only bright spot in his life. He couldn’t find his way through that darkness and chose a very permanent way out. Facing life without him, dealing with the pain of losing him, and experiencing both what I went through and what his family went through showed me that nothing is ever so bad that it is worth putting the people you love through that kind of pain. When things seem to be so dark that it is virtually impossible to see the way out, that is when we must turn everything over to God and trust Him to bring us through to the other side.

  3. As a teenager I learned a lot from an older brother who often got into trouble. By watching and learning I was able to not make most of his mistakes.

  4. I try to learn through other peoples’ mistakes,but as a 15 yr old girl,I did not. I got pregnant as a teen,as did both my sisters. It was hard,but I chose to have/keep the baby. He is now 21,and we have a strained relationship for the most part,but we really grew up together. It was very difficult,and the hardest job I have EVER had,but I wouldn’t change a second of it! 🙂
