Learning is one of the things that I see as one of the most important things in the world. Learning is important in so many aspects in life and it keeps on going from you enter this world till you leave it when you are old. Every day we learn something new and we should never be pleased and say that I have learned enough since it is really important to keep striving for more wisdom.
There are many types of learning in life. There is one that you get from your parents raising you, one that you learn in interaction with others and finally there is education that I want to focus on in this post.
There not that many things that I regret in life. Off course there are sometimes where I really scrued up but I believe that if I would not have done it I would not have had the chance to develop to the person that I am today. There is no point in dwelling on the past but rather try to change the future instead. However, there are one thing that I really regret and that is not listening to my Grandmother that kept on telling me the importance of education but I did not want to listen to her. There was some many other exiting things in life and I did not want to waste it on school I kept on telling her.
Sadly for me, she was right and I was completely wrong. I believe that if I would have taken her advice I would have gained insights in life in a totally different way and would have had a profession today. Instead I had to learn the hard way by going through life with part time jobs and I have had many nights worrying for the rent of the next month which I maybe would not have had to do if I would have taken education and thereby being able to have a stable job with a better salary.
Another thing that education does is influencing the way you see the world. Education helps you to reflect on things in a different way. My boyfriend told me that he is not the same person today as he was when he first entered university and he has learned how to look at the world and knowing that every case can have different viewpoints. Being part of a class at an university you will also have to tolerate different people and deal with many different opinions. There is an interesting environment at an university that I think that helps you develop as a person and not only learn the subjects that you take.
Higher education might not be for everyone because we are all different but I think that some level of education is important for everyone even though you want to a lawyer or work at the supermarket. I think that it is important that everyone finish at least college in order to have some overall knowledge that would come handy in life since knowing a little bit about everything is a blessing even though you say that you “just” work at a supermarket.
Therefor I will also keep on giving advice to young people about taking education since it is so important for the person’s development. Knowledge is key to a country’s progress and it is important that as many as possible see the importance of education after my opinion.
