i need help with a question from this quote: "sometimes lifes most important lessons need to be literally staring us in the face befor we are able to recognise their true value"
why do some lessons need to stare us in the face?

  • English -

    Many times we don't want to face problems or "life's lessons." Until we are forced to face them, we tend to ignore them.

    For instance, teens tend to think they're invulnerable. But they are likely to realize how precious and fragile life is after they are in a nearly fatal traffic accident.

    Another example: My younger daughter didn't get along very well with her older brother -- until he graduated from college and moved 2,000 miles away. Then she found that she really missed him.
