Dear Irina,

I loved your article! If you don’t learn from your own life, no matter how many books you read, you’ll learn nothing from anyone else!

But, man! Life teaches such tough lessons! I feel black & blue sometimes on the inside alone! Shiiiit! Besides, life is too short to make all the mistakes on my own. I gotta learn some from the mistakes of others, right? 🥴🥺😱🤭😳
