Does anyone believe in this statement?

There is an article on divorce, and it got me to thinking. For those of us that lost someone we loved know that's a feeling we wouldn't wish on our worst enemy, but at the same time losing that person can even make us stronger, better people. I know that I've dated people that never had a serious relationship, and they were definitely not LTR material in my book, whereas dating someone who's experienced heartache is a lot more realistic and more relatable.

Discuss!

The biggest hock of BS that I can remember. So much BS in that one statement that it's frightening.

its stands to reason people that have personal experience with something will be better prepared for further involvement in similar circumstance thereafter.

the only people who would not are those who had little personal involvement to learn or take anything away.

The higher the risk, the greater the reward.

I believe that statement to be true. And the only people who don't think it is have pretty much convinced themselves it's not out of their own bitterness and pain. Which is very sad.

Loving someone can be risky. It makes you vulnerable to being hurt in a number of ways.

But avoiding love out of fear is painful too.

The reality is, life in general can be hard - sometimes even damn unfair.

Once you accept that and learn to keep on moving forward anyway you'll have some pretty great highs to go along with those sad lows.

Personally, I like to live life to the fullest - wide open

I mostly agree. A great deal of personal growth and development comes through adversity. Besides, it's almost impossible to avoid living the cliché and actually live life.
