What is the most important thing you've learned on your own?

In three sentences, explain something that you've learned without being told by another person -- something you've figured out all by yourself. Here's an example:

"I learned how to paint with water colors by reading a book and searching for YouTube videos. It took me a while, but I figured out some techniques that really work for me. I'm not an expert yet, but I have discovered a real joy in painting."

It can be anything -- a practical skill (like painting) or a knowledge set (like how to use mathematics).

    Mar 5 2013: To believe in the goodness of humanity. By considering the motives, I could see how no one is really motivated by pure evilness, there is always a reason for our actions... a good reason! This has given me so much patience, peace of mind and helped me make peace with myself. I am a good person yo! hahahaha
