What is the biggest lesson you learned that no one teaches

I came across this writing a few days ago and it has stayed with me.
I agree 100% to what this writer penned.

What is the biggest lesson you learned that no one teaches?

Arguing with a fool proves there are two.

The easiest way to wait for something is to forget it exists.

Leave, when a promise turns into a sorry.

The worst type of loneliness is the loneliness you feel when you are with people.

There are no rules of attraction when it comes to meeting your match.

You don't need to compromise on your standards, the right person will come to you.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

A toxic person only changes their victims, never themselves.

A conversation about how you feel is not supposed to end in an argument.

Someoneís effort is a reflection of their interest in you.

You can be the whole package at the wrong address.

Facts over feelings. Donít let your emotions play with your intelligence.

President Joe Biden doesn't give a shit anymore tonight,

Today I read to a second grade class about a black boy who experienced being at a bus terminal

In the south that had a whites only and colored only water fountains. The black boy drank the water out of the colored fountain and it tasted terrible. The white boy next to him drank out of the whites only fountain. He started fantasying that the whites fountain water was better tasting. He tricked his grandmother and took the bus a few days later to try to drink from that white fountain. He finally drank from the white fountain and the water was also terrible tasting. At the end he noticed the pipes were connected and the water was the same. As I was reading this I thought The right wingers heads would explode hearing this story and ban the book. More than half the class were white students, 1 Black child, 1 Hispanic and the rest Asian. They really enjoyed the story and I didnít think any of them felt guilty. They were not upset but curious why they had two water fountains. We had a nice discussion. Then I read them a book about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. I took great delight that I educated my students about our countryís history and none of the white children were upset or ashamed but enlightened instead.

That is why the right wing hates discussing history like slavery and segregation. They are the ones feeling guilt not those of us who know that those who donít know history are doomed to repeat the past.
