    Use this thread to post interesting articles that you read, videos you watched, or whatever it was that taught you something you didn’t know. Eventually we will all learn more things! This idea was suggested by one of our members Euchale. I love it.

    Things I learned today begins now:

    This is quite a long read, but very interesting. Didn’t know much about this guy, but glad I do now!

    Not a new lesson for me, but a reminder…

    After some heartbreak last week, I found a quote online while I was reflecting that really resonated with me:

    In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.

    I took a chance with someone, feeling both excitement and anxiety. That “new relationship energy” can be powerful at times. I didn’t follow my brain or reason with logic. I followed my heart.

    In the end, I was hurt. Bruised. Rejected. But that’s ok. Because, in order to love, we must remove our armor and expose our heart. You can’t truly experience love without the risk of being wounded.

    That pain is both a beautiful and terrifying thing. But it’s what makes us human. And when you find love, it’s always worth the risk.
