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 22 2013: On 19th Oct 1994, I experienced God and God's love, which made anything of this world unimportant. I learned that
    there is no hell but only Love, which is God's permanent state. Furthermore, it is arrogant of us to think we are
    that important in the whole universe to be able to effect the perfection that is God.
