Nothing can substitute experience.
Experience can build up wisdom in you. It has the power to be your mentor or friend. it has the power to change the dimensions of life.
The experience could be offering good or bad lessons. An experience done by others could offer different results to you. Sometimes, the experiences of others are offering lessons to you. So, I suggest you use common sense and remain unaffected by the others.
Experience is most of the time fail to find out correct or proper words.
Experience can help you in growing wisdom. Experiencing is building sense in you for tomorrow. You have to live in present till the last moment.
